The event sold out in its last two editions.

After two sell out editions Lost Minds Festival in Newcastle is back for May 2024.

Returning to its home of Leazes Park and claiming to deliver the finest artists and freshest sounds to the North East, the event is joining forces with global brands Cream and Kiddstock who will each host their own stages at the event. Cream will be taking over the Trance arena with “Trance Cream” and Kiddstock will be hosting the hidden Kiddstock stage.

Some of the top names within the dance music world will be brought together for one ultra special festival in the city. Hidden under the watchful eye of St James’ Park, the event will see big name superstars, trance icons and more claim their titles as the hottest names in the scene.  

Headlining the event is Newcastle’s very own Ben Hemsley.  

Fresh from his sellout Utilita Arena show in October, Hemsley is a force to be reckoned with. He has risen through the dance music ranks and solidified himself as one of electronic music’s hottest acts of the moment. 

Alongside Hemsley is Ben Nicky, who will be headlining the Hard Top arena. Ben Nicky is a firm fan-favourite at Lost Minds, having brought his unique sound to the event for the previous two years.
