About this Event

WHO ARE WE?

Made possible by the very generous owners of Moss End Farm, Lost in the Moss is a not-for-profit grassroots event taking place this May in the glorious Peak District National Park.

We’re inviting you to join us in the beautiful part of the world to experience amazing music from all over the Peak District, fabulous local food and hang out with fellow makers, creators, movers and shakers from the Staffordshire Moorlands. Cut off from WiFi, but certainly not from Hi-Fi, we aspire to take a festival back to it's roots: great music and art; fabulous local food and drinks; and the best company you can hope to find. We do this while recycling, reusing and re-imagining every feature of the festival site wherever we can, to prove that you can make something amazing out of nothing and respect our beautiful environment every step of the way.

100% of our profits from our festival tickets and bar sales will be going to three causes very close to our hearts:

The Natural Resource Defence Council

The NRDC works to safeguard the earth - its people, its plants and animals and the natural systems on which we rely for healthy communities. It does this by combining the expertise of some 700 scientists, lawyers, and advocates with the power of more than three million members and online activists to confront our planet's most pressing problems.

Find out more about the NRDC here: www.nrdc.org

Staffordshire Moorlands Climate Action (MCA)

MCA was founded in June 2019 in response to a successful campaign, organised by residents of the Staffordshire Moorlands, to get Staffordshire Moorlands District Council (SMDC) to join other councils across the country in declaring a climate emergency. Following this breakthrough, the group decided that it was essential to hold SMDC to account for making socially and environmentally responsible decisions, befitting their climate emergency status. Since then, MCA has grown to over 170 registered members, who engage in positive local action to raise awareness over the issue of climate change within the community and local government.

Douglas MacMillan - affectionately known locally as 'Dougie Mac' .

Dougie Mac offers specialised care for patients over the age of 16 who are facing a life-limiting illness when a cure for cancer is no longer possible. Their social work team also give practical and emotional support to patients, their femilies, carers and friends. Around 3, 500 people and their families in North Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent access their care aervices each year - as a locally funded charity, Dougie Mac relies on local support to continue its incredible work.

As ever, the bar will be flowing all weekend long, together with some great food stalls - including the return of our favourite Vegan brownies in the world! Spending money (cash) is a must: due to our location card machines do not work on the farm - and we're 20 mins away from an ATM!
