The Lost Party

Driven to develop alternate cultures in India, multi-genre festival The Lost Party has kick-started their second edition today at Lonavala. The campsite, nestled next to the Salter Lake—a 90km drive from Mumbai and Pune—gives you all the reasons to pack your bags and set off. Curating talent from the Indian and International creative space, the festival not only promises the best of music, but it offers an immersive weekend full of art, design and film. Think acro-yoga sessions as the sun rises over the lake, or star-gazing at night amidst cheery bonfires. Festival designer, Transhuman Collective is producing the event with artists from Mumbai, Delhi, North East, Rajasthan, Chennai and Kolkata among other places. Adding to the alternative experiences, there will be installations using sound and animation, 3D printing, reggae aerobics, star-gazing sessions, a laughing gas stall, a pillow-fight arena, a foam pit to let off some steam and a carousel to relive your childhood.

This year, the music line-up promises the likes of HVOB, Humble The Poet, dEbruit, Donn Bhat+Passenger Revelator, Big City Harmonics, Curtain Blue, Frame/Frame, Karsh Kale Sound System and Swanand Kirkire among others. Joining them will be new talent Spryk, OX7GEN and electronica fusion project Karakimo.

We got in touch with three headliners of the festival, who shared with us their quirks and secrets. Here’s how it went. 

Frame/Frame

One thing you always do before going up on stage?
Always that last minute run to take a piss. Last thing you want is to be stuck up there hopping up and down for the wrong reasons.
 
Worst goof-up on stage?

I misheard an audience member once say "F*** yeah!" once as saying "F*** off". I replied with "F*** you too!" on a microphone, much to everyone's confusion. 
 
The weirdest audience reaction you've ever seen?
Probably that of an adequately drunk gentleman who proceeded to do push-ups during my set. 
 
Contextualise your music in one line.
Deep, dreamy night time grooves. 
 
This year, The Lost Party will be…
Quite a treat for the ears! 


Big City Harmonics

One thing you always do before going up on stage?
Hang around backstage.

Your worst goof-up on stage?
I fell off the stage once.

The weirdest audience reaction you've ever seen?
Excuse me, can you play more beats?

Contextualise your music in one line.
This question could use more context. 

This year, The Lost Party will be…
About checking out local artists I haven't ever seen live. 


Curtain Blue

One thing you always do before going up on stage?
I always shout my lungs out to open up my throat.
 
Your worst goof-up on stage?
 My soundcard conking off.
 
The weirdest audience reaction you've ever seen?
Guy under 'the' influence, almost beat me up once.
 
Contextualise your music in one line.
It's just what you need at 3pm on a Sunday afternoon!  
 
This year, The Lost Party will be…
Cool.
