Lost Lands 2023: Lineup, Camping and Everything Else You Need to Know

Headbangers everywhere are counting down the days until the return of Lost Lands, which will resurrect in September 2023 for arguably its biggest festival thus far.

Beloved amongst the stateside electronic music community for its heavy-hitting bass music and prehistoric theme, Excision's flagship festival returns to Legend Valley September 22-24. Once again, Lost Lands is coming in hot with a colossal lineup as well as number of major updates and improvements that were implemented after receiving community feedback.

With the festival’s 6th edition approaching, EDM.com has put together a detailed guide with everything you need to know in order to make the most out of your Lost Lands experience this year.

Lost Lands 2023 Lineup

The lineup at Lost Lands this year is as massive as ever, with a slew of unexpected B2Bs and sets from some of the scene's most celebrated artists. Excision will once again perform three sets: a two-hour solo performance, a B2B with Dion Timmer and a special "Detox" B2B with Wakaan label boss Liquid Stranger.

Additional Lost Lands 2023 performers include Boombox Cartel, Flux Pavilion, ATLiens, SVDDEN DEATH, Ganja White Night, JVNA, Barely Alive, Kill The Noise and EDM.com Class of 2022 trailblazers Akeos and Ray Volpe, among others. Many artists outside the traditional dubstep umbrella will be throwing down as well, like ACRAZE, Sub Focus, Ninajirachi, HALIENE, Wax Motif, Macky Gee and Codeko.

Lost Lands Accommodations


The majority of Lost Lands’ attendees each year opt for camping as their accommodation option, and the festival offers a wide range of camping and glamping options. As a general rule of thumb, camping tickets have to be purchased separately from admission tickets and they're sold per campsite—not per person.

From car, RV and tent-only forest camping to quiet car camping, Lost Lands offers an abundance of options to accommodate each headbanger's needs.

Glamping is back at this year’s Lost Lands as well, now doubled in size. Passes for both South Jurassic Glamping and North Jurassic Glamping were sold out, but additional, limited spots have now just opened up, and are available for purchase here.
