We love music and dance! From samba to morris dancing, barbershop quartets to pop, LostFest has something for everyone. There was entertainment in all venues and on every street corner to keep toes tapping.

Evening performer

We have a real mix of old favourites as well as sparkling new talent in what is arguably the most exciting and comprehensive annual busking event in Cornwall.

The entertainment kicks off around 10.30 am and carries on all day until the evening.

We are always on the lookout for new talent, so if you would like to be part of LostFest, please let us know.


From 5.30pm our main bands will perform on the main stage on the Parade. You can grab a beer at the Skinners tent and something to eat from the Food Village and enjoy live music from two great acts: 

From 5.30pm to 6.30pm ..... MorZim

At every event there are those that simply crave the good old days - before the domination of autotune, synth and over-produced music videos. 

For those we say look no further than MorZim, the South West's resident band for all things found deep within the depths of new-wave 70's. 

A music-veteran four piece with a passion to play loud and proud in a way that invites all to join in and dance their socks off ... why would anybody want to miss them!


Then from 7.00pm to 8.00pm ..... Bonetired

Live music continues late into the evening at pubs around town.
