In keeping with the festival’s concept of a secret tribe living in a lost village, we were given a postcode only prior to the festival. Although it was easy to find the festival site, our VW campervan wasn’t the most efficient, and there was a lot of traffic along the way, it was actually quite simple. We were able park our campervans in the little park just outside the festival gates (after going around the one-way system a few times). However, most people arriving by cars parked further away and were shuttled by bus to the site. This helped keep the route clear with no queues.
The standard camping area consisted of two fields close to the main entrance. One field was slightly further from the “arena”, so it was quieter but still within easy reach of all the action. A small entertainment area was available, with some delicious breakfast food trucks and seating areas. There were also plenty of toilets.
The opposite side of Festi was available, near the main stage, banquet area, and offers bell tents, luxury Yurts with posh toilets, showers, and a private bar.
Food and drinks
It was certainly above average in terms of food quality. I believe festivals these days have stepped up their food game. The hungry punters aren’t content with just a plastic bag of frozen chips or a ratburger. They want great street food, and Lost Village delivered. A few vendors are easy to recognize when you visit the London food market: Voodoo Rays (pizza), Le Bun, a French twist on a burger and fries, Buddha Bowl (vegan curries), and Le Bun (french twists on burgers and fries). My favorite was the Korean chicken stand. The buttermilk fried chicken burger came with sweet n spicy Korean sauce, fries, and fennel slaw. It cost PS10 which was reasonable for a festival, and I thought the quality was quite good.
