Dubstep and Dinos: A Look at Lost Lands

Lost Lands 2017 Lineup

Guest Post by: Jordan Miller, Madison Burr, and Tory Njardvik

Calling all Ragin’ Raptors, Basseontologists and Party-voures to join the prehistoric, head banging, good times at Legend Valley, Ohio this September 29th to October 1st. Hold onto your butts, and prepare to be transported back to the Cretaceous Age where dinosaurs will once again dance among us at this bass boomin’, boogie bustin’ Lost Lands Festival. It’s dinosaurs and bass; what more could you want?

Excision, the bringer of the bass and visual virtuoso, has brought together some of the filthiest names in the bass scene to create a prehistoric themed festival so heavy that it is guaranteed to leave even the most experienced head bangers sore. Excision, in true head banger fashion, will be headlining all three nights to ensure festival goers get a healthy dose of the legendary Paradox Stage while simultaneously getting the maximum usage out of their official Lost Lands earplugs, which are included with every ticket. The ear plugs are free of charge, but the neck braces are not standard issue. Newbies out there should consider picking up a neck brace from a medical supply store or snagging one from a free listing on craigslist, because you are sure to need one after this heavy, head banging hangout! Protip: get some rhinestones to bedazzle your neck brace or bring sharpies so all of your new friends can sign your brace, and remember, wear it with pride!

Aside from Excision and his neck breaking beats, festival goers will be able to bask in 500,000 watts of downright dirty bass while enjoying the musical stylings of Cookie Monsta, Kill the Noise, Slander, Snails and many more bass extraordinaires. The lineup is totally rexcellent it will surely delight dirty beat seekers and get those dino feet dancin’!

Dubstep has gone through a major revival this year and we are beginning to see more festivals catering to the heavier music scene. Moonrise and Insomniac’s Middlelands both had some heavier headliners, various non-musical activities, art and productions, but these festivals were not centered purely around dubstep, like Lost Lands. We are excited to be attending the inaugural year of Lost Lands and to check out a festival that is curated by bass heads for bass heads.

If you can’t get your Bassasaurus butt to Lost Lands, we will have post festival content for you to check out. And for those of you traveling back in time to dance with the dinos, check back after the festival to find yourself and your friends in our prehistoric people album.

Camping passes are currently sold out, but a variety of other passes, including general admission, are still available for purchase from the ticketing website. Before you dino-stomp your way to Legend Valley, make sure to check up on all of the festival information.
