Adelaide’s obsession with boutique festivals has been quite evident in 2015, with Stonecutters, Vision Fest, Futuresounds Festival and many more having major support from Adelaide’s dedicated music lovers. One of the next big boutique festivals is Lost City 3: Endless Possibilities Forever, which will be returning after a three year absence to Queen's Theatre on January 8 and 9. The festival is a multi-genre two day festival hosting music, visual arts and performance art. Lost City began back in 2012 with acts such as Prince Rama, Love of Diagrams and Oisima on the bill and then returned in 2013 at Tuxedo Cat with NO ZU, Thee Oh Sees and Sleep ∞ Over on the line up.
Lost City 3 will be a lush curation of innovative, eccentric sounds and visuals, with local acts such as retro funk group The Shaolin Afronauts, progressive instrumental act Sparkspitter and ethereal producer and vocalist, Joy & Sparkes. Other interstate and international acts will include Sydney’s psychedelic electronic producer, Thomas William Smith, dark techno act, Cale Sexton and French percussionist Will Gunthrie. There will also be a number of visual artists including Jelena Vujinovic, Tom Borgas, laser and light artist Jayson Haebich, plus many more. Lost City have also said there will be another announcement of acts to be added to the line-up. You can see the full list below.
The organisers of Lost City, Brad Cameron, Joseph Blackwell and Angela Schilling, put together a Pozible Campaign to try and get enough funding for the festival by selling the first round of early bird tickets. Lost City managed to exceed their target of $6000 by their cut off of the 4th of December, selling out of all the ‘Weekend Pass + Tee + Music’ packages. The reason behind the campaign was stated ‘one challenge we will have is selling enough tickets in advance to provide adequate financial security for the festival,’ as poor ticket sales have been the reason why events such as Gorgeous Festival have been cancelled this year. Fortunately for Lost City 3, they managed to reach their target and more tickets will be announced soon.
