Lost In A Moment is neither a festival, nor a party. It is certainly not a rave. Yet it does share one single integral element with all of these: music.
It is a blend of simple ingredients: an outdoor location, a surround system, where together we dance alone. Staging happens beyond, below and on the stage at Lost In A Moment. The gaze is off the phone and off the DJ, everyone losing themselves in the mass. For us a surround system does not just address the sound, but the way in which people – audience and artists – approach each other. They embrace in their inwardness.
Lost In A Moment is a journey to an outdoor location. Be it a mountain above or an island on waters close to the city, a castle just at the outskirts or a natural reserve embracing the urban periphery, Lost In A Moment always thrives for a strong sensation of space instead of just event structure.
(June 3 – June 5, Marseille, France)
