Lost Picnic, a boutique music festival for foodies, returns to Sydney for a special afternoon of music, performance and delicious food on Sunday 15th October 2017.
The bohemian style event, which debuted to a sell-out audience in 2014, will see Fat Freddy’s Drop take the stage along with The Beatle Boys as they celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Summer of Love and release of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club, and pay homage to the magic of The Beatles with the Australian Symphony Orchestra. The line-up is also set to include: Sydney songstress and 2016 ARIA award-winner Montaigne, Sydney singer-songwriter Sarah Blasko, Melbourne four-piece The Teskey Brothers, and Sydney alt-folk band All Our Exes Live in Texas.
But it’s not just about the music. Lost Picnic has teamed up with some of Sydney’s best restaurants to offer punters a selection of fine-dining dishes and gourmet hampers, along with Australia’s top performance artists. Popular pop-up The Tel Aviv Issue is on board with the latest Middle Eastern offerings from Jude Cohen of popular grazing chain Grandma’s, along with street Malay favourite Mamak and Chur Burger of Surry Hills with its notorious “Biggie Smalls’ burger and picnic starters such as bourbon-cured Tasmanian Salmon. Australia’s largest organic restaurant Agape will be on show with chef Simon Lawson at the helm dishing up delights such as spit roasted biodynamic suckling pig and soft goats cheese with beetroot pickle and spelt emmental crispbreads, and Italian lovers will be set with fresh, homemade arancini, porchetta rolls and Mediterranean antipasto from chef Antonio Sabia of Woolloomooloo’s famed Puntino Trattoria. Sweet lovers won’t miss out either with Chippendale’s KOI Dessert Truck in attendance. White Rabbit will also offer craft beer, alongside boutique wine and cider.
Lost Picnic is the brainchild of Simon Beckingham and Wade Cawood. The duo started in the electronic industry before moving into organising acclaimed dance events across Sydney and are known for their eclectic, multifaceted events such as Glenworth Valley’s NYE festival Lost Paradise. “Lost picnic is a mix of art, theatre, incredible food and outstanding musical talent – the vibe is unlike any other I’ve experienced at events here or overseas. Staged at the gorgeous leafy Domain, the family friendly day will see blankets-a-plenty and roving artists to keep you and your crew occupied between sets. And on top of all the other goodness, limited VIP ticket holders will have access to day beds.” Beckingham says. “This year goes beyond Sydney’s best food and music and forays into the world of theatre and art. There’ll be curios to delight even the youngest of Lost Picnic guests, from top acro performers to mysterious monikers like The Gramophone Man, Wind-up Ballerina and Blue Tongue Brass Band. It’ll be an Alice in Wonderland-esque atmosphere with balloon sculptures, giant checkers and magicians floating about.”
Gather your friends and loved ones and set yourselves up for a day filled with music, entertainment and delicious delights as you stretch out on your picnic blanket in the magical tree-lined Domain.
