COVID-19 vaccinations are looking more and more available nationwide across the United States, making music festival and industry professionals cautiously optimistic for the potential of larger festivals and in-person music events in the latter half of 2021. One such optimist, Jeff Abel (AKA Excision), has made clear his intentions to host his two namesake festivals, Lost Lands and Bass Canyon, this year.
In an Instagram post, Abel outlined what is happening currently with the festivals. After that, he officially announced the opening of ticket sales for the events.
In the post, Abel remains positive in his encouragements that the festivals may have a chance of happening. Abel also made sure to include a disclaimer saying they might not as well.

What It All Means
With this news, concertgoers can look forward to the possibility of not just one, but two amazing festivals this year. Even better news for those who purchased a festival ticket for the 2020 Lost Lands or Bass Canyon festivals (and did not request a refund), they will automatically be in for the respective 2021 festival.
Currently, Bass Canyon will be taking place at Washington’s Gorge Amphitheatre from August 20-22nd. The festival this year is boasting an all-new second stage featuring primarily drum and bass, melodic, and free form bass music.
Likewise, Lost Lands is set to take place from September 24-26 in Thornville, Ohio’s Legend Valley. For those unfamiliar, Lost Lands features a wide array of EDM live music genres like dubstep amid a mix of tribal and prehistoric themed décor.
Things are a little too soon to name any artists by name at either festival, other than festival founder Excision. Looking at last year’s Lost Lands lineup may give some idea of what is to be expected.
The 2019 Lost Lands lineup included Peekaboo, Zeds Dead, MARAUDA, Blunts & Blondes B2B HE$H, SLANDER B2B Spag Heddy, and of course, Excision B2B Illenium.
