INS AND OUTS

All festival attendees are free to enter and exit festival grounds and campgrounds as many times as you please, including the Sound Camps. This year all guests will be allowed in the main campgrounds, even if you aren’t camping.

DINO DEN

The Dino Den is only accessible to Dino Den and Dino Den Tent-Ready campers. If that’s you, you’ll receive Dino Den wristbands in addition to your festival wristband. Please keep these on for the entire festival.

NOT CAMPING?

If you’re staying in Columbus, the Dino Express Shuttle can take you to and from the festival each day with ease.

We also still have availability at our Preferred Hotels in Columbus, which are a short walk from the Dino Express Shuttle pickup.

PARKING

The Weekend Parking Pass is required for any non-camping vehicles parking at the venue. Ideal for guests staying at hotels or guests who are camping at a friends campsite. Vehicles may enter once per day and exit once per day, or they can stay parked in the same spot all weekend. If you have an Early Entry pass in addition to this pass, you may park here on Thursday.

Note: You are not allowed to sleep inside or near your car in the parking lots.

RAIN OR SHINE

There will be bass.

WATER

This year we have created additional wells all over the venue for way more water refill stations! And for those moments when you don’t have your primary refillable water bottle, we are continuing the tradition of selling disposable water bottles for just $2 venue-wide.

SHOWERS

This year there will be 3x more showers throughout the campgrounds! There will be a small fee to shower.

DO NOT TOUCH THE DINOSAURS

The Dinosaurs at Lost Lands have traveled millions of years into the future to be here. Please treat them with respect! While there are a few new dinosaurs this year at a photo booth station that you may sit on with assistance from the Lost Lands team, touching, damaging, or physically interacting with all other dinosaurs in any way will result in being immediately escorted out of the festival.

FOOD OPTIONS

We respect the diet choices of Herbivores, Carnivores, and Omnivores. There will be delicious vegan and non-vegan options galore.

MERCH

On the way into the festival you will pass through the official merch booth for Lost Lands, Excision and many other artists on the lineup.

ENVIRONMENT

We are beyond lucky to have such a beautiful venue in Legend Valley. In accordance with the 3rd pillar of the Sacred Code of Lost Lands, we must all work together to minimize our impact on these grounds throughout this weekend. Please bring plenty of trash bags, avoid things like cases of individual water bottles, remove packaging from your camping gear before you leave for the festival and clean up after yourself everywhere you go.

For our part, we’ve teamed up with Zero Waste Event Productions this year with a goal of diverting recycling and compost waste away from the landfills. Please be conscious of where you place your trash based on the provided signage. Ask a Green Team volunteer if you’re not sure!

HARM REDUCTION

Medical staff will be available 24 hours a day to help in any situation and will not incriminate anyone. Do not hesitate to visit medical tents or reach out to any staff member or security member. Remember to drink plenty of water throughout the weekend and be aware of your limits. Dance Safe will also be on site.
