Lost Village Festival holds around 10,000 and beat off competition from Camper Calling, Electric Fields and When In Manchester Festival in the Best Small Festival category.

The festival was also victorious over major festivals such as Bestival and Latitude in the Best Production category.

Co-creator of Lost Village, Andy George, told The Lincolnite: “We always wanted to do something that was different to everything else in the market place.

“We originally grew up in Lincolnshire but we always ensured Lost Village was a national festival and it attracts people from all over the world. It’s always great to get recognition from the industry and the wider world, but we’d be nothing without the 1000’s of people that make the journey each year.

“We wanted to do something that felt intimate and special to those who experienced it. We’ve said since our inception that we have no interest in becoming a big glastonbury style festival. We’re boutique and we want it to stay that way.

Andy revealed that preparation is well underway for Lost Village 2018.

“As always, we never rest on our laurels. We’re working on some amazing new experiences within the Lost Village, as well as even more incredible food and restaurants and of course, a few surprises along the way.”

Lost Village 2018 will run from August 23 to 26 and tickets can be purchased here.
