Festival Offers Picturesque Setting at Foxhall Resort, 30 Minutes West of Atlanta, Transportation, Lodging, and Camping Options
Lost Art Music Festival, the gathering by music lovers for music lovers, which returns to Foxhall Resort in metro Atlanta June 17 and 18, 2022, continues to put the fan first with the announcement of their “Inner Circle Experiences.” A series of ’small capacity, huge fun’ artist-fueled outings, each has been created by the artists and festival organizers that are as curated as the performances on stage. The festival continues to fortify its young heritage with a cultivated lineup that is eclectic and lively Americana, influenced by everything from retro soul and roots to folk and outlaw country. The full Lost Art 2022 lineup includes Durand Jones & The Indications, Paul Cauthen, The Lone Bellow, Rayland Baxter, Southern Avenue, and Margo Cilker. Aaron Lee Tasjan and Gabe Lee will be a part of the Friday Night Kickoff Party.
“Lost Art Music Festival’s mantra from the start is ‘Experience music again,’ and our team built this festival with that in mind. Combining two days of live music with the beautiful setting at Foxhall and fun excursions and experiences with artists, that’s what drives our passion for festivals,” said Lost Art Music Festival Founder Jim Ethridge.
Inner Circle Experiences include:
The Lone Bellow BBQ & Wild Heaven Beer Pairing:
Enjoy a special beer and BBQ pairing led by a sommelier from Wild Heaven. At the spacious Sports Lawn at Foxhall Resort (next to the festival grounds), fans start with international-inspired BBQ from Chef Mike LaSage with Drunk & Lucky Social Club. Then, a Wild Heaven beer expert discusses how to pair beer and smoked meats. Is Germany onto something with the traditional lager? Should you pair it with the meat or with the sauce? Mmm! What could make this a better way to kick off the day? Well, The Lone Bellow will perform a short set. Sounds like fun, y’all! Capacity – 50 / Cost $40.
Fishin’ with Durand Jones & The Indications:
From a gorgeous lake next to the festival grounds, a fishing guide will talk to fans about the history of the lake, what fish frequent the waters, and what bait works best. Then, join Durand Jones & The Indications for leisurely fishing from the bank. If you need help, the guide will set up your rod. If not, let ‘er rip! Anyone who catches a fish gets a free Lost Art koozie. Rods and one beverage (Wild Heaven Beer or Cathead Sparkling) will be provided. Fishing, drinks, blue skies, and your favorite band. Yes, please! Capacity – 12 / Cost – $30.
Rayland Baxter ATV Tour and Hayride:
Join Rayland Baxter for a one-of-a-kind experience on a guided ATV + hayride tour across the beautiful Foxhall Resort property. Foxhall’s tour guide will lead the group along the trail, which brings fans to a spot in front of the Chattahoochee River, where Rayland will perform a few songs. Helluva a way to kick off a festival day! Capacity – 4 ATVs (two riders each), plus 10 for the hayride / ATV – $200 total + taxes/fees per ATV for one driver + one rider. $25 per person for hayride.
Margo Cilker Chattahoochee River Walk Concert + Cocktail:
While enjoying a beverage (one Wild Heaven Beer or Cathead Sparkling), fans take a leisurely, 15-minute hike along the Chattahoochee River (next to the Lost Art festival grounds), ending at a vista by the old stone bridge. Once there, Margo Cilker will perform a short, unamplified set. Capacity – 30 / $20 per person.
Southern Avenue & Cathead Cocktail Making Class:
To kick things off, a Cathead Distillery expert will lead fans on a brief history of summer cocktails and then on to how to create the classic Cocktail. They’ll share a couple of their best cocktail tricks (one ice cube vs. many, bitters or no, orange zest, etc.) You’ll have all the ingredients provided, so you can play along to create your own. Then, Southern Avenue joins for the making of the second drink, “The Southern Avenue,” which incorporates some of the band’s favorite cocktail characteristics. Must be 21+. Capacity – 20 / $35 per person.
