Lost Village Festival will open its doors to revellers tomorrow for only the third time. Lost Village is a totally immersive festival experience that sees revellers engulfed in a surreal forgotten world; an abandoned woodland village inhabited by all manner of unusual people.

The immersive festival has revealed details of its line-up and I’ll be there ready to find out why so many are raving about this relatively new summer event. I intend on enjoying as much music as possible and here are some of my must sees this year.

10. Ibido Sound Machine

The weird and wonderful Ibido Sound Machine are fronted by London-born Nigerian singer Eno Williams, Ibibio Sound Machine is a clash of African and electronic elements inspired in equal measure by the golden era of West-African funk & disco and modern post-punk & electro.

What? African music fused with 80s synths

When? Friday

9. 2 Many Djs

For those arriving early on Thursday, whom have won tickets, Soulwax aka 2 Many Djs will be hosting an intimate 4-hour party, which is set to take place in a secret location within the forest of the Lost Village. This performance will be one of Soulwax’s most intimate gigs in years, all whilst submerged in the ever-stunning surroundings of the Lost Village. The event is in collaboration with Amazon Music.

1. Moderat

Moderat are a super group composed of members of Apparat and Modeselektor. The joint venture started off as a fun side project but due to its popularity it became a hugely busy time for all the members and three albums down the line they have decided to call it a day. I have seen Moderat play live a few times and its always been great so I am sad to see them go but incredibly excited to see them live one last time. This is a show don’t want to miss!

What? Berlin super group
