It's no secret that Excision is no stranger to festivals. In addition to throwing down some insane sets at festivals around the world, he also throws his own festivals twice a year - Lost Lands in Legend Valley, Ohio and Bass Canyon (read about my experience here) at the Gorge in Washintgon.
Last week, the live sets from Lost Lands were released in straight-up festival style. For 3 Days, "Couch Lands" played the sets in the order they took place at Lost Lands 2019, reminding every headbanger why Lost Lands is arguably one of the best festivals to attend! Where else can you throw down with fellow headbanger in an atmosphere that looks like it's straight out of a scene from Jurrasic Park?!
After throwing down in my living room during Couch Lands, it's safe to say I am more prepared than ever for Lost Lands 2020. This year, Lost Lands 2020 will take place during Friday, September 25th-Sunday, September 27th in Legend Valley, Ohio for its 4th consecutive year.

Since 2017, Excision has gathered 35,000+ headbangers in one place to celebrate bass music and the culture that surrounds it. With over 100 performances across its multiple stages, Lost Lands remains a headbanger paradise.
Here's why I can't wait for Lost Lands 2020:

1. The PK Sound
Got bass? PK Sound is bringing in over 1,000,000 watts of bass to both of the main stages: Prehistoric Paradox & Whompy Woods. Talk about bass in your face!
2. The Sound Camps
When the festival, closes the music isn’t over! The after-hours Sound Camps are a great way to discover artists you may not have heard of before and catch your favorites doing surprise b2bs!

3. The Festival Atmosphere
Other than the incredible music, there is more to this festival than music. There are multiple dinosaurs, some over 100ft tall, all around the festival. Some of which spray water and some you can actually RIDE! This immersive bass experience is unlike any other in the world. According to the Lost Lands Website there will be “all new chill zones, art inspired walkways, trippy forest lighting, and expanded prehistoric decor” What is there not to love?

4. The Music Production Workshops
In addition to the awesome music, art installations, food and craft beers, there is even a little something for all of you aspiring DJs & producers: Lost Lands holds music production workshops taught by a couple selected artists from this diverse lineup. Who would you love to see teach a lesson here?

5. The Lineup
Although this year's lineup hasn't dropped yet, Lost Lands lineups are always straight up fire! If it’s anything like the EDC lineup, I’d more than thrilled. Check back soon for an official lineup announcement.
