Lost Horizon HQ Announces Fatboy Slim Show

After a year spent exploring the metaverse, followed by the creation of dream IRL venue Lost Horizon HQ over the summer, we’ve been delighted to announce that by popular demand, Lost Horizon HQ, the creative arts centre, bar and live venue from Glastonbury’s Shangri-La, is now officially a permanent year round fixture in the heart of Bristol.

The venue is continuing to push boundaries showcasing art, live music and performance, and we were delighted to announce a huge spread of artists for October’s shows, including the legendary Fatboy Slim who will play our 350 capacity venue on 22nd October, ahead of his eight date UK wide “We’ve Come a Long Long Way Together Tour”, which takes in arenas across the country.

Headline acts and party organisers  with shows on sale or soon to be announced include Afriquoi, Bad Fractals, Balimaya Project, Big Joanie, Club Djembe, Dub Pistols, Decoy//Kurupt Fm, Emerald, Father Funk’s Funk Aerobics, Flamingods, Freestylers, Future Boogie, Gorilla Tactics, Krust, Los Dedos, The Breath, The Mouse Outfit, The Scorpios, Wargasm & Yung Singh.

In addition ShangrilART takeovers return to LH HQ every Saturday afternoon and some Sundays, with a programme of workshops, talks and community events. From activist print workshops to creating new treasures from forgotten items, this takeover series is designed to celebrate creative expression, unite and open minds.

October events include the ShangrilART Market, a Wearable Waste Workshop from Shapers of Society, and Euan Roberts art club, and at the end of the month Lost Horizon will host Vanguard’s auction in aid of charities Temwa and Aid Box Community (ABC,), highlights include works by Inkie, Mr Jago, Dicy, Dale DVNM Collins, Bruce Onobrakpeya, Benjamin Ibebe, Rowdy and limited-edition prints by Banksy.

November and December will see soon to be announced events from Aida Wilde, Alchemy & Sippin T, Carrie Reichardt, Darren Cullen, Paris 68 Redux and Krust among many others.

The news created quite a stir, with coverage across Access All Areas, TPi, Bristol Live, Bristol 247 and Secret Bristol, among many, and tickets for the Fatboy Slim show sold out in three minutes flat.

We have huge plans for the venue, and will soon continue the Lost Horizon evolution, by launching as a fully hybrid venue with its own virtual reality digital twin, meaning in the future shows will also simultaneously play out to global audiences.  For now, visitors can visit Lost Horizon’s virtual worlds via a mini VR hub within the venue.
