THIS COMPETITION HAS NOW CLOSED.

If you go down to the woods today… you’ll fall head first into an adult’s playground of whimsy and wonder, where derelict buildings host intimate gigs, woodland nymphs dance through the trees and lakeside banquets pop up under the stars.

We’ve teamed up with the festival trailblazers at Lost Village to give away four tickets to this parallel universe in the depths of the Lincolnshire countryside. But these aren’t just any tickets.

Giving you the ultimate luxury festival experience, we’ve really gone and ramped things up. You’ll be staying in the Boutique Sanctuary, a gorgeous haven of bell tents and wigwams (no faffing around with tent pegs or leaks here) where you’ll have access to a porter service, private cocktail bar and deliciously hot showers.

We really wouldn’t blame you for not venturing beyond camp… But the Lost Village beckons with a dynamic musical line up spanning disco, indie, electronica, soul and beyond, headed up by international legends including Jon Hopkins, Peggy Gou, Little Dragon and Maribou State.

Once you’ve danced your sparkly socks off, rally your gang and get stuck into the festival’s eclectic mix of alternative entertainment. Fend off hangover blues with live comedy down at the Hallowed Stage, then stop by the Institute of Curious Minds for stories, talks and debates from some of today’s most boundary-pushing individuals.

Feeling inspired? Make tracks to one of the festival’s many free workshops to try your hand at anything from dream-catcher weaving to jewellery making, fire writing and leathercraft. We’re particularly intrigued by floriography, which is apparently the “art of cryptic communication”…

All this creativity has no doubt left you in need of a little R&R. Head to the Energy Garden for a spot of yoga and meditation, then we’re treating you to private spa access. Drink champagne while soaking in a wood-fired hot tub, or soothe party-sore limbs in a Finnish sauna overlooking the lake.

But what about food? Lost Village scrimps on nothing, and will be fuelling revellers with a host of London’s best restaurants popping up under one roof at The Eating House, as well as an array of global street food (with plenty of vegan options).

But what makes Lost Village one of our all-time favourite festivals in the UK is their notorious tribal banquets. Top chefs such as Merlin Labron-Johnson and Neil Rankin (of Temper fame) decamp to the woods to cook up feasts which see partygoers gather around wildflower-strewn tables to eat, drink and be merry. As part of your prize, all four of you will guests at Hawksmoor’s Sunday roast, where you’ll be wined and dined rotten as you toast your four-day odyssey on the shores of the glassy lake.

Now that is how to do a festival properly.

Good luck.
