The creators of Bonnaroo and Outside Lands unveiled their newest music festival experience this past weekend in Phoenix Arizona. Lost Lake Music Festival was set in Steele Indian School Park in the heart of Phoenix and proved to be an excellent location for such an event. Transportation to and from the event was flawless and included free rides on the Light Rail for all festival goers. The festival grounds were enormous and featured three stages and a number of activities. Notable attractions included: the Lost Playground which housed a number of over-sized yard games, the brewpark that was stocked full of local beer, The Marketplace which featured local organizations and small businesses, live painting exhibitions, and let’s not forget the plethora of local restaurants and food trucks. Steele Indian School Park provided the perfect space for a festival of this scale, with plenty of room to wander, hills to climb, and even featured a small urban lake which is somewhat rare in Phoenix.

The lineup of the festival provided a variety of musical artists. The first evening of the festival included sets from Broods, Calexico, Crystal Castles, HAIM, Ludacris, Pixies, and Chance the Rapper. The second day of the festival included sets from Kongos, Huey Lewis and The News, The Roots, Dreamcar, a DJ set from Lil’ Jon, Lil’ Yachty, and The Killers. Also featured on Saturday, the Dap Kings hosted the Superjam session, which included various artists coming together to perform songs from The Beatles. This was an excellent theme for the Superjam and had everyone in the crowd singing along. The third and final day of the festival included Futuristic, Snakehips, Highly Suspect, Danny Brown, Big Gigantic, Juanes. Run the Jewels, Major Lazer, and Odesza.
