As we begin to wake from the slumber of a long, dark and very wet winter, thoughts start to turn to sunny days and warm summer nights. Festival season starts in a couple of months, and one of the summer's highlights has to be the perfectly constructed weekend of music, art and creativity that is Lost Village, which takes place just over the border in Lincolnshire. There's very little to compare to Lost Village - a progressively-run party over the course of four days that first appeared on people's radars in 2015.

According to the organisers, this is the second year the festival has attained a gender-balance in the programme. With a lineup that so far features Floating Points, Four Tet, Jayda G, Django Django, Honey Dijon and Bombay Bicycle Club, it's easy to see why it sells out.

There's also plenty of scope to unwind and relax in the lush green setting

The lure of a party held deep within an abandoned forest, featuring a carefully curated lineup, is a long way from more commercial festivals you may have experienced. The location also makes Lost Village attractive compared to the majority of big-name festivals, which take place somewhere in the southern half of England to serve a London crowd.

Being just off the A1 makes Lost Village easily accessible for many major cities in the north, and the lure of fine food, comedy, talks and alternative workshops adds to the sum total of a fantastic extended weekend. There's also plenty of scope to unwind and relax in the lush green setting with wood-fired hot tubs, yoga and holistic therapies. As their slogan says; 'A New World Awaits', so you best be quick to snap up your ticket before it's too late.
