Final release tickets for Lost Picnic in Sydney’s Domain on Saturday 13th October are now on sale. Featuring live entertainment from the likes of Tash Sultana, Meg Mac, Marlon Williams, Odette, Sons of the East, Big Words and Hot Potato Band, and great food from The Dolphin, Rocker and Milky Lane, Lost Picnic is set to be a fantastic outdoor music experience for the whole family.
Lost Picnic will be Tash Sultana’s first Australian show following the release of her highly anticipated debut album and new single Salvation and the last chance for fans in Sydney to see her perform this year. The self-taught singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, who first made a name for herself busking on the streets of Melbourne, has created global-waves with her magical melodies and virtuosic guitar.
Burning bright with her new album Low Blows, Meg Mac will bring her deep and soulful sounds to the balmy afternoon, while the intensely arresting Kiwi singer-songwriter, Marlon Williams, will showcase the blue-grass tracks and silky, rich croon that have seen some describe him as “the impossible love child of Elvis, Roy Orbison and Townes van Zandt”. The captivating and melodic Odette, indie folk trio Sons of the East and energetic ten-piece brass outfit Hot Potato Band complete the impressive line-up.
Lost Picnic launched to an excited audience in 2014, when founders Simon Beckingham and Wade Cawood of Finely Tuned had a vision to create a boutique event that showcased both local music talent and restaurants and offered an entirely different entertainment experience in Sydney. This year is set to be bigger and better than ever, with significant operational changes introduced, including doubling the food offerings and increasing the number of bar staff to minimise queues and maximise time spent dancing on the grass.
Lost Picnic is collaborating with some of Australia’s finest chefs and restaurants to deliver the best festival food.The likes of The Dolphin, Rocker and Milky Lane will be serving up a wonderful selection of picnic-perfect fare to share on a blanket with a bottle of wine or ice cool beer in hand. This year, guests will also be able to bring in their own picnic snacks and there will be an extended bar to ensure speed of service.
Lost Picnic will also foray into the world of theatre and art, with a myriad of roving performances like Blue Tongue Brass and Morris Dancers to keep guests of all ages entertained in between music sets. There will also be face-painting, clowns, old fashioned games like badminton, sack races and tug of war, and even bouncing castles for the youngest Lost Picnic fans.
