If you’re looking for a place to ring in New Years 2017, then Lost Paradise festival at Glenworth Valley is our pick, a cultural experience to awaken your mind and soothe your soul. Taking place on the 28th December 2016 – 1st January 2017 in the stunning river-fringed hills of the Central Coast, just an hour north of Sydney, peace and serenity can be found within a stones throw of the major metropolis.
We’ll be getting our butts up to Lost Paradise this festive season for a great line-up of local and international acts. Headliners taking the stage include Sticky Fingers, Flight Facilities, Fat Freddy’s Drop, and Gang of Youths with everything from local indie acts such as Big Scary and Methyl Ethyl, to high-tempo international DJ sets from Hot Chip and Hudson Mohawk to keep the hearts pumping and blood flowing. Mosquito Coast, Flowertruck and Montaigne are a few more homegrown talents that we’ll be looking forward to checking out over the 3-day event and we’re sure our musical tastes will be well and truly quenched by the end of the weekend.
Whilst the music will take centre stage and keep you moving through the night, your chakras can be realigned during the day in the Shambala Fields with yoga, massage, meditation and other therapies for the body, mind and soul. Renowned yogis such as Simon Borg-Oliver and Nicole Walsh will correctly align your downward dog, as Laughter Yoga instructor Jeevi Ramtel transcends traditional practice to the hysterics of a downward hyena.
If your spiritual enlightenment can be induced by food alone, then find your way to the Lost Village for a tasty cuisine. With a cultural smorgasbord of culinary delights ranging from oriental street food to Michelin class dining with chef Paul Mickleright crafting the lavish long table experience that is Lost Feast. A total of 18 food and drink vendors will be keeping their kitchens hot and drinks cold as you recharge for the next set.
A full day of music and enlightenment requires a good night sleep and a comfortable place to unwind after getting grotty in the mosh pit. We’re absolutely delighted to be shacking up in the Glamping Gypsy Village this year, which offers luxurious self-indulgent camping fit for royalty. A spacious canopy with porters, hosts, cleaners, VIP showers/toilets and creature comforts to indulge while still experiencing that open-air freedom of camping, for more information about camping like a lord, click here.
