Lost Paradise Has Unveiled Its Dance-Heavy New Year's Eve 2023 Lineup with Flume and Basement Jaxx
Dom Dolla, Foals, Bicep, Kelis and Carl Cox will also be ringing in the new year in Glenworth Valley.
Music festival fans, where's your head at? We can tell you where it'll be if you're looking to send off the year with a stacked lineup of dance floor favourites: Glenworth Valley. The end-of-year staple Lost Paradise has just announced its return for 2023, and it's making a comeback with plenty of big names.
Between Thursday, December 28–Monday, January 1, Lost Paradise will unleash a massive program of live music and DJ sets that include appearances from headliners Flume, Dom Dolla and Foals, plus Basement Jaxx, Bicep and Carl Cox on the decks. The Central Coast festival also shares some names with the recently announced Beyond the Valley lineup — namely Kelis, The Jungle Giants, Channel Tres, Cassian, Jayda G, DJ Heartstring, Overmono, Lastlings, BIG WETT and salute.
Other notable names include local festival favourites like Lime Cordiale, PNAU, Winston Surfshirt, Royel Otis and Sycco; pop heavyweight Holly Humberstone; 'Afraid to Feel' hitmakers LF System; and international dance mainstays Kettama, Barry Can't Swim, Ewan McVicar and Yung Singh — the last of which has racked up nearly a million views on his Melbourne Boiler Room set from earlier in the year.
Since first unleashing its specific flavour of festival fun back in 2014, Lost Paradise has become a go-to way to see out one year and welcome in another — and with its just-dropped roster of talent for 2023, that's set to be the case across its riverside setup again this time around.
Also on the bill: wellness, art, sustainability, ideas and food, all as part of a four-day camping festival. So, there's plenty to get excited about and to tempt you to make the journey an hour out of Sydney.
While the full rundown of activities hasn't been revealed as yet, the lineup hints at pottery sessions, workshops centred around First Nations culture and speed dating. And, camping-wise, options span everything from rent-a-tents to luxury glamping.
This year, Lost Paradise is opting to steer away from a traditional first-, second- and third-release ticket strategy. Instead, ticket prices will gently increase in accordance with demand.
Of course, it's the Lost Paradise lineup that'll get you to the festival in the first place. So, enough chatter; here it is:
