Lost Lands is a three-day festival that mashes up creatures from a lost world and the hottest bass music DJs, dancers and music producers on the planet. At Lost Lands, with over 1,000,000 watts of bass, it's all about dinosaurs and partying.
Lost Lands will be jam-packed with music, talks, dancing, exhibits and dinosaurs. There will also be a whole host of vendors selling arts and crafts and lots of different food and beverages.
The lineup for the 2020 festival is still being carved in stone. However, the organizers promise it to be as hot, if not hotter, than last year's roll call. Some of the individuals and groups that performed at the 2019 festival included 12th Planet, 1788-L, Atliens, Badklaat, Blunts & Blondes, Black Tiger Sex Machine, Boogie T, Boogie T.Rio, Borgore and Cookie Monsta.
Festivalgoers can expect to have tons of dancing space to get their groove on while the DJs do their thing. In addition to the music and dance-floor frolicking, there will be dinosaurs, volcanoes and other landscape features from an era long past. Last year, the company ASHBA brought the Lost Lands festival to life through life-sized sculptures and re-creations of dinosaurs and volcanoes. The volcanoes, which stood at 65-feet tall, erupted fire and smoke 30 feet into the air while festivalgoers danced their hearts out. Additionally, the ASHBA dinosaurs, which included a flying pterodactyl and a Tyrannosaurus rex, were placed throughout the event so partiers could truly feel as if they were in a lost world.
Also at the festival, you'll be treated to immersive environments that further help make you feel as if you are in a world that is 65 million years old. Past festivals included inspired walkways; crazy, old-world forest lighting; and tons of prehistoric decor and landscaping.
As far as drinks are concerned, vendors will be ready to serve up the 21-and-over crowd. Expect to find prehistoric cocktails, lots of craft brews, wine and other beverages to put and keep you in a partying mood.
If you like a little health and wellness with your festival partying, you can spend time at the yoga and massage areas. Professional yoga teachers and masseuses will be on-site, ready to give you that dose of healing you may need after partying it up.
Lost Lands will be held in Legend Valley, which is located in Thornville, Ohio. The address is:
7585 Kindle Road
Thornville, OH 43076
Having an RV at Lost Lands is a spectacular idea, especially if you plan on staying for the entire festival. Even if you'll only be there for a day or two, an RV will give you a place to fully recharge your batteries when you need to dip away from the festival madness. Additionally, with your own RV, you'll have your own bathroom and kitchen, which means no waiting in line.
There is RV camping galore at Lost Lands. However, the RV camping lot is sold out. That being said, you can purchase spots in the car camping area if you show up in an RV that's under 36 feet long. Keep in mind that these parking spots will not have power.
If you're looking for an RV for the festival, check out RVshare’s rental page. There are plenty of RVs for rent that are under 36 feet in length.
Since RV spots are all sold out for the 2020 festival, you'll have to head toward Buckeye Lake to find RV camping. There, you can choose from the Buckeye Lake/Columbus East KOA or the Buckeye Beach Park for RV camping.
As far as hotels go, there are some affordable options east on I-70 where the interstate intersects with Highway 37. You'll find a Red Roof Inn and a Deluxe Inn there. You can also find some Airbnbs near the festival.
Legend Valley is located right off the intersection of Interstate 70 and Highway 13.

Simply take I-70 west, and get off at the Jacksontown Road (Highway 13) exit heading south. From there, you'll see signs leading you to Lost Lands.

Weekend-long parking passes are available for non-camping vehicles. This means you can park your RV there if it fits in a normal-size parking spot, but you can't camp in it overnight. With this pass, you can enter and exit the festival one time each day.
Tickets to Lost Lands can be purchased on the festival webpage, but most of the options are already sold out. Head over to StubHub, Ticketmaster and other ticket retailers to find tickets not already sold. Since Lost Lands tickets are mostly sold out on the official webpage, you can expect to pay a premium at these ticket retailers.
