Celebrate Life in all its Technicolour Glory

Lost Paradise is a music, arts, yoga, performance, food and camping experience like no other. Kindred spirits commune together for three days on the sacred grounds of Glenworth Valley, New South Wales to explore and discover new music, indulge in delicious dining, interact with visual and performance art outside a traditional setting, and celebrate life in all its technicolour glory.

There is Something at Lost Paradise for Everyone.

Lost Paradise is an entire experience. Placed in an amazing setting within a valley on ancient land known to local Indigenous elders as ‘Paradise Lost’, it showcases a brilliant line up, secret hideaways and glittering late night discos, an inspirational art and performance repertoire, spoken word and debate, a magnificent Carnival parade, culinary feasts, restorative massage, a variety of Yoga to indulge the body mind and soul and much much more. It appeals to both fans of electronic music as to nature lovers, to families with young kids as to the 30 somethings that like the finer things in life, to foodies as to folkies, funksters as to late night revellers. There is something at Lost Paradise for everyone.

Lost Paradise is a Feast for the Senses.

Across the bright canvas of Glenworth Valley is a twisting labyrinth of cubby-holes and curious corners coloured with roving performers, sporting contests and a glittering collection of art pieces and installations. Wander to the dreamscape that is the Shambhala gardens, relax, stretch and unwind by the winding stream. Meet acrobats, troubadours, belly dancers and drummers – all appearing and disappearing when you least expect it.

When the sun sets over the festival grounds, the night owls spread their feathers, emerging with a more mischievous energy and dreamt-up costumes. When the darker sounds of the night begin, a veil of mischief falls on the night – wander up to the fairy-lit trees and find some moonlight tunes at the Paradise Club, gather round a bass-filled Speakeasy, order a tray of cocktails, get distracted by the Aerial artists or find yourself lost in a row of bubbling hot tubs under a canopy of trees…

Lost Paradise is a feast for the senses. We aim to give you an amazing experience to carry with you year-round!
