This yr's Lost Lands was a music occasion not like every other, filled with epic manufacturing and the filthiest bass musicanybody may ask for. The Jurassic Park themed pageant got here with extra than simply dinosaurs this yr, though there have been rather a lot, it was an expertise that really took anybody in attendance into one other world.
It was the second annual Lost Lands and the pageant wasn't kidding after they stated how nearly all the things could be larger and higher than the primary one. Keeping the flurry of bass music followers pleased, all the mandatory novelties on the pageant had been there and what got here was a spectacle that will undoubtedly be remembered for a really very long time, or at the least till the following one.
With the phases set and the a number of dinosaurs put into their respective positions, the music took over. The power was really robust with this one, bass resonating loudly all through the grounds of Legend Valley in Thornville, Ohio. The sound was beautiful popping out of these insane audio system and the music saved on rolling from the very first act on Friday to the final on Sunday night time. The sheer epicness of the pageant was matched by the nice lineup that in addition they had, together with everybody from the bass music god that's Excision to Illenium to Kill The Noise, all of the components that went into Lost Lands had been in place and coordinated nicely.
This behemoth of a pageant was nearly an excessive amount of to absorb at occasions, however with that being stated I've outlined a number of the greatest moments and issues from this so-called “Super Bowl” of Bass:
I do not assume anybody will disagree with me after I say that the stage design was really high notch. I've actually by no means seen something prefer it earlier than at a pageant.
The curators of the occasion did a fantastic job making a surreal Jurassic Park expertise with life like dinosaurs roaming nearly each a part of the pageant. Did I point out that that they had two full-sized main-stages? Each one with big LED screens, lasers, lights and the big dinos that stood upon them. It's loopy how a pageant may pull this off, primarily bringing their followers right into a world that's nothing like they've seen earlier than.
Lost Lands positively stepped issues up manufacturing sensible this yr in comparison with the primary, so I can solely think about what's to occur within the years to come back.
For a weekend that was filled with so many magical experiences and performances it was actually laborious to choose and select which acts actually stood above the remaining. Every artist gave their all and introduced some critical firepower. Each one made their set distinctive and most of them did an excellent job of differentiating themselves from the pack.
The greatest units from what I noticed through the weekend must be Excision b2b Downlink, Black Tiger Sex Machine, Cookie Monsta, Rezz, Slander & NGHTMRE and Rusko. I am certain you might be all very accustomed to these artists and what they will do, and I can positively guarantee you all of them threw down at their respective phases that weekend.
Excision b2b Downlink was a set that was anticipated by most if not all of the followers in attendance, and they didn't disappoint. Their set was a tough hitting whirl of bass, each track hit dwelling with the followers and the environment throughout it was the most effective of the weekend. Cookie Monsta's set was additionally simply unimaginable being that the entire set was purely unique materials, I respect any artist who takes this route being that it isn't all that widespread at the moment. But with that being stated he killed it, making everybody headbang and vibe constantly all through the whole thing of his set.
Rezz was in fact one other expertise altogether. It wasn't simply the music she was enjoying but additionally the “Wompy Woods” stage appeared to be the right place for “Space Mom” to throw down some critical heaters. Slander & NGHTMRE had been additionally curators of a implausible efficiency, being their first time enjoying collectively at Lost Lands. They really crushed it, whereas additionally having a hand in forming in all probability the most important mosh pit of the pageant.
And who may overlook in regards to the legend that's Rusko. His set was really unimaginable, he took management of the stage and everybody who was watching him. It's good to see the OG is again and appears like he isn't going wherever.
Lastly, I've to say the added expertise of the ‘Soundcamps' was very nicely carried out on the festivals' half. It's humorous how even after the day the place all the most important artists performed there got here an entire new arrange at night time. Here there have been all comparatively unknown artists enjoying on phases that had been principally stacked subsequent to one another. It was a loopy scene to see, the place it was primarily a mini pageant taking place after the principle pageant. This was additionally a brand new addition to Lost Lands this yr and we're all very glad they determined to do it!
Another factor I actually have to speak about is the truth that Lost Lands performed the three unique Jurassic Park Movies each night time all through the weekend. I do know some folks won't be all that excited for that however the reality is that I've by no means actually seen a pageant present a film expertise straight after the craziness of the music pageant that occurred all through the day.
Each night time, after all of the wild festivities, the followers who had been tenting or who simply needed to remain a bit of longer entered the world of Jurassic Park but once more. Attendees had the chance to look at the films that impressed the entire pageant proper on the very stage and display screen that they had been all watching their favourite artists carry out on simply minutes earlier than. It was actually an excellent change of tempo to have the ability to chill and watch a film that sparked all of the creativeness with dinosaurs within the first place.
One last item that actually blew my thoughts through the weekend was the truth that Shaq aka DJ Diesel carried out a full dubstep and riddim set. I do not assume anybody noticed this coming, having an NBA legend like him play at considered one of, if not, the most important bass music occasion on the earth was a sight to see.
Before the weekend the pageant talked about a particular visitor, however I do not assume anybody actually anticipated to see the large man on main-stage. We all know of Shaq lately making an attempt out the artwork of djing however with the ability to see him mild up Lost Lands was unimaginable in additional methods than one. Almost each fan in attendance rushed to the stage as quickly as he confirmed up. Although I am unsure if he was actually doing a lot up there, regardless it was positively one thing, and the truth that excision was on his shoulders at one level too raging with the NBA legend was additionally very insane.
So with the tip of the pageant I ask you one query, who stated Dinosaurs are extinct? Because from what I noticed at Lost Lands they appear very a lot alive to me. This pageant was a spectacle that I've actually by no means seen earlier than, it was wonderful strolling among the many real looking dinos whereas additionally head banging concurrently to a number of the greatest acts within the bass music scene. All in all it was an occasion value remembering, a pageant that stands above the remaining and I am certain all of us can not wait to see what's in retailer for this prehistoric occasion when it comes again subsequent yr!
