I decided to split up my Lost Lands blog post by day so I have two more blogs coming your way. In this post, I’ll briefly talk about some of my thoughts on the festival. In one of the next blogs, I’ll dive more into details about the festival and my VIP experience because it was absolutely worth the money.
I’ll have to start off with saying that Lost Lands was so DOPE! It’s easily one of the best events I’ve been to thus far. It was a full weekend stacked with the filthiest and grimiest sets that I’ve ever seen in my life. Shout out to Excision and his team for making this the easiest and best festival that I’ve ever attended!
There was a lot of hype leading up to the festival due to it being the first one dedicated to dubstep and bass music. Despite the hype, I was absolutely blown away and my expectations were exceeded more than I could have imagined.
The inaugural Lost Lands came to life in Thornville, Ohio. The venue (Legend Valley Concert Venue & Campgrounds) was perfect and I don’t think the festival would have been the same at any other location. It was absolutely gorgeous with the trees surrounding the venue and the nice touch of dinosaurs. It felt like we were experiencing Jurassic Park in real life. Dinosaurs and bass, what more could a girl ask for?!Some of the dinosaurs moved and made noises. There was even one that sprayed water out of his mouth! Who knows, maybe in the future these dinosaurs will actually roam around the festival with us? Now THAT would be dope!
The main stage, better known as the Prehistoric Paradox Stage, is similar to the classic paradox stage but obviously with a prehistoric touch. Each side of the stage was accompanied by a volcano and a massive T-rex, which both blew smoke out which was dope. The volcano on the other hand actually had fire coming out of the top.
I do have to add that the volcano caught on fire during Destroid’s set and they had to stop the music to contain the fire. Like damn, I went to the first ever Lost Lands and you’re telling me the volcano caught on fire? Alright, dope haha. A little mishap but they did a great job recovering from it really quick.
The Cave of Souls stage was equally as dope. The cave-like shape of the stage provided a little warmth when the sun went down. Excision’s team was not messing around when it came to the stages – 750K watts of bass and lazers that you could see and hear from a mile away.
Honestly, my only complaint is the lack of water stations. There was only one area where you can fill up your camel baks so obviously the lines were bound to get long. I didn’t mind spending $2 on water because I personally have no patience to wait in line for free water. Ain’t nobody got time for that, right? Haha.
Pete and I spent our first day exploring the festival and we managed to catch most of the following sets: AFK, Figure B2B Midnight Tyrannosaurus, Herobust, Squnto, Kill The Noise, Seven Lions, Ephwurd, Excision, Dieselboy, Trampa, and Crizzly.
It was my first time seeing the bolded artists live and I wasn’t disappointed with any sets at all. Everyone absolutely killed it!
The vibes were soooo unreal! You could FEEL everyone’s energy and their passion for EDM. Have you ever seen 20,000+ basshead’s headbanging in unison? That shit’s beautiful! I’m honestly so happy Pete and I got to experience the first Lost Lands together.
Anyways, here’s some pictures I took on day 1!

Okay – here is one of my absolute favorite moments of the festival: when you walk down the path into the festival for the first time and you turn the corner to head to the main stage… You’re greeted by this big guy!
It’s a lot of fun to meet new people and find out where they’re from! I met people from all over the country: Oregon, California, Canada, and even Florida. It’s amazing to think how many miles everyone traveled to get to Ohio.
I lost track of how many Rick and Morty references, totems, and drops there were. As a Rick and Morty fan myself, I thought it was badass haha.
Before I dip out – big shout out to Lunar Threadz for our Pete and I’s amazing outfits and shout out to Pete for being my personal photographer!
Thanks for keeping up with my posts! Stay tuned for day 2 and 3.
Until next time xx
