Lost Picnic – Our top three acts


Described by the organisers as a ‘perfect summer’s day’, hopes are high for the inaugural Lost Picnic in Sydney’s Centennial Park on Sunday 23rd March. A boutique event featuring homegrown talent, there will also be some seriously good food and drink on offer: Garden Bar by the Corner House will be making an appearance after its debut at the Opera House, and you can pre-order a gourmet hamper from Icebergs chef Maurice Terzini or Martin Boetz from the Rushcutters Group.

Sunny day, fancy food, good tunes. Lovely.

Unlike most of Sydney’s day festivals, Lost Picnic has expertly curated a single stage of five Australian acts, so you’ll be able to see each and every one. Here’s a little taste of our top picks: to whet your appetite:

Megan Washington has been nominated nine times for an ARIA award (and won twice), been named Breakthrough Songwriter of the Year by APRA (among many other accolades), and it still feels like she’s just getting started. Beautiful songs, beautiful voice. We’re very much looking forward to this one.

Here she is singing Sentimental Education live at the Opera House:

Sydney boys done good The Rubens come flush from the Platinum-success of their eponymous debut album, and make it all seem so effortless. Here they are with My Gun, which was voted 10th in the Triple J Hottest 100:

Playing everything from a banjo to a didgeridoo, three-piece from Sydney Sons of the East describe themselves as folk indie, or “Findie”. It’s their first time playing a festival, so make sure to support them as they wow with catchy gems like Come Away:
