Tash Sultana will headline this boutique music and food festival in the Domain

Run by the folks behind the wonderland music festival Lost Paradise, this family-friendly incarnation returns to the Domain in October.

The headline act will be home-grown talent Tash Sultana, who will be performing in Australia for the first time since releasing her debut album, Flow State. Her EP Notion was streamed 175 million times and earnt her four ARIA award nominations.

Meg Mac will also be rolling up her sleeves for a powerful performance, alongside Kiwi singer-songwriter Marlon Williams. Odette, Sons of the East trio and ten-piece brass outfit Hot Potato Band complete the impressive line-up.

This balmy afternoon in the Domain presents the perfect opportunity for a picnic, and if you don’t feel like catering yourself, leave it up to the food trucks on site. There’ll be grazing appropriate Italian snacks from the Dolphin and Bondi’s Rocker, and a bar to fuel your dancing feet.

Since it’s a family affair, there will also be activities to keep the kids entertained. They can bounce between face-painting, sack races, tug-of-war, clown shows and right onto the jumping castle. For festival goers with tiny tots: kids under three get in for free.

Oh my word. Was this festival organised by a bunch of work experience kids? How can a festival run out of wine 3 hours in? 90 minutes queuing for food and drinks the whole day. Pimms running out of jugs at 1:20pm?? So poorly organised, an embarrassment for the acts to be associated with the name, Lost Picnic.

Poorly organised. It felt like a scam, one stage, short set times, only a handful of artists. Alongside queues for everything - bathrooms, food, alcohol. Even pre- arranged food that they were promoting had wait times of hours. It was literally the worst thing i've been to.

Worst logistics ever. Queues for everything, they ran out of booze. Absolutely unbelievable how anyone can organise a festival with such nightmarish logistics in 2017 in a developed country.

I wish I could give this 0 stars. Absolute disgrace. Everyone who attended has been robbed. Organisers should be ashamed of themselves!!
