Phoenix is quickly becoming an enticing west coast festival market.

Now, Lost Lake is back for a second edition in 2018, led by a stacked talent roster topped by Future, The Chainsmokers, rap’s current lead female SZA, and pop-rockers Imagine Dragons. Highlights on this year’s bill include Nas, Louis The Child, Mija, A$AP Ferg, Cashmere Cat, and T-Pain.
Bringing over 40 acts across October 19 – 21, Lost Lake boasts a uniquely curated festival experience, blending top-notch hip-hop, electronic music, and rock with a heavy emphasis on Phoenix’s burgeoning arts and culinary scenes. With festival amenities that include a marketplace to discover local artisans and creators, a philanthropic component with FOUNDation and an entire culinary experience dubbed Phoenix Flavors, Lost Lake applies just as much emphasis on its host city as its lineup. From Janelle Monáe and Young Thug to local favorites Phoenix Afrobeat Orchestra and Jimmy Eat World, Lost Lake drops off one of the most diverse lineups of the summer for their 2018 installment.
