Here’s Some Of The Incredible Aussie Talent We Can’t Wait To See At Lost Paradise 2017
Lost Paradise wouldn’t be Lost Paradise without being a celebration of the truly special music talent this country is known for producing, and this year is no different when it comes to showcasing many acts that make our country’s music scene so great. Because of this, we thought it’s about time we feature five acts we’re stoked to have on our bill this year.
Oh yeah, we now have less than 100 4-day tickets remaining at 3rd release pricing, so you’d better snag one of them before they’re gone as well.
Home grown indie pop duo Client Liaison have been crafting ultra-catchy tunes for years now, with their unbelievably funky tunes surely having you dancing away in front of your radio at one point or another. A treat anytime they play live, it’ll be impossible for you all to sit still when they take the stage at this year’s event.
A songwriter since her teens, there’s no doubt you’ve heard Australian talent Meg Mac streaming into your ears on radio or online. Having featured at massive events around the world, and being nominated as Australia’s ‘Best New Talent’ by Rolling Stone, there’s no doubt we’re all massively looking forward to seeing her live on stage at Lost Paradise 2017.
These three lads from Byron have been developing a cult following of late, which isn’t just limited to Australia, having played sold out shows not just here at home, but in San Diego, Brooklyn, and New York. Having also been invited to record their debut EP at Converse’s Rubber Tracks studio Stateside, we’re definitely going to be seeing big things in future from Skegss.
When publications like Mixmag are calling this young electronic talent “probably the hottest property in house music”, you’ve gotta stand up and pay attention, and their words come with an extreme amount of merit. Mall Grab’s star has risen extremely quickly over the last year or so, and we absolutely can’t wait to see him put the hammer down on our Lost Disco stage at this year’s event.
This wouldn’t be any kind of list of Australian acts on our bill without including the spectacular RÜFÜS, one of our phenomenal headline acts for this year’s event. These epic music production aficionados have ARIA and AIR award wins for the best dance releases as notches in their belt as testament to their talent, and will be one of the major highlights of this year’s Lost Paradise.
QUOTES & REVIEWS
“Lost Paradise was like a big backyard party that just spiralled out of control; in the best way possible. A beautiful setting, a lovely cool river to swim in (or to hold an unofficial mini rave, as the case turned out), an entire corner of the grounds devoted to yoga and meditation and relaxation, and barely a bright neon flashing alcohol sponsorship logo to be seen, it carried the casual and laidback vibe of a much smaller festival — while still attracting some of the country’s most exciting and beloved live acts.”
– HUFFINGTON POST
“Lost Paradise is an experience that extends far beyond anything that could be promoted, advertised, or even expected. Quirky, eccentric, and so utterly unique, the adventure Losties holds for one is no same adventure for another. The festival itself is split into various sections that altogether provide an immersive experience for individual, couple and even family. Not only does the festival offer a chance to see internationally loved artists along with Aussie grown favourites, but includes mind, body and soul activities for the enjoyment and healing of all attendees; young and old.”
– AUS MUSIC SCENE
“Lost Paradise is the nuanced, well-rounded, quiet achiever of Aussie festivals; big enough to deliver on the great acts, but small enough to still have an air of intimacy about it.”
– MTV TRAVEL
“Fancy welcoming in New Year amongst a bunch of friendly, live music and yoga loving revellers? Then Lost Paradise is for you. Over three days an 8000-strong crowd of families, wellness warriors, nature-lovers and hipsters descend on NSW’s picturesque Glenworth Valley to experience a festival like no other.”
“This is Lost Paradise’s third year and while that’s quite young in festival years, they keep proving they mean business. Their ethos extends past music too and the festival — held in Glenworth Valley (just an hour north of Sydney) — is built around a mix of art, yoga, performance and food. Because there’s nothing like a little yoga to dust off a festival hangover.”
– CONCRETE PLAYGROUND
“There are music festivals, then there is the mind-body-soul experience that is Lost Paradise.”
– TIME OUT
“If you’re the adventurous type, being amongst the spectacular Glenworth Valley is heaven! Have a kayak… experience the spiritual realm in the Shambala tent. Throughout the festival there is always something great going on…”
“Lost Paradise changed my life. I continually chase the feeling of community and friendliness it gives me. All my friends are sick of hearing me talk about it.”
– JACK MORRISON, LOST PARADISE TRIBE
“You’ve already made Lost Paradise great! I will be spending every New Years there, thanks the fantastic memories and a wonderful start to the new year.”
– OLIVIA BOOTH, LOST PARADISE TRIBE
“The food vendors last year were pretty much all you could hope for… lots of variety and not too expensive!”
– GEORGIA BURNS, LOST PARADISE TRIBE
“Keep doing what you’re doing! Such an amazing, intimate festival. Felt like everyone there was one big family. Had a really amazing feel – everyone was supportive and comfortable and wanted each other to have a fabulous time.”
– JANICE MULLER, LOST PARADISE TRIBE
“Bars tucked away in the forest, spa treatments, and 7,000 beautiful humans partying to the world’s best musicians: Welcome to Lost Paradise, Australia’s answer to Coachella.”
“Lost Paradise is committed to giving punters a distinctly boutique experience, with an attendance of 8,000 punters, all getting lost in live music from some of the world’s most original musicians, food curated by Sydney’s top chefs, and more.”
“All the elements are spot on – location, audience, line-up and weather. Wonderful memories of an inspirational festival.”
– GREG WILSON
“I remember the first time I played this festival I went for a walk around and thought, ‘this is the kind of festival that if I wasn’t working at I’d go to’. Last year after I played I walked around out the front to see Motor City Drum Ensemble and my feelings were the same – I’d happily do it again…”
– TOUCH SENSITIVE
“Lost Paradise has been and will always be such a special festival experience for me. I’ve never felt such a tight community vibe like that from a festival before. From the punters, the music and the staff, everything was beyond expectation. I’ll definitely be back as a punter as soon as I can.”
– YOUNG FRANCO
“One of the most magical spots we’ve ever played in Oz and a night complimented by generous staff and hospitality that really looked after us. A show we’ll never forget”
