Lost Eden is an immersive arena for arts and culture, set within stunning woodland at Kendal Calling. By day, a mixture of stages and watering holes dotted among the trees will keep a bounty of music flowing throughout the afternoon. By night, watch the area transform into a cornucopia of curiosity. Intriguing installations, motion-sensor light art and walkabout performances will form a trail (or rabbit hole) brimming with unique artworks.

Red Stars return to the fields of Kendal Calling 2019, taking over Lost Eden with 4 very special micro-venues. Discover how you can get your pass to cross the border HERE.

Over the last two years, Lost Eden has commissioned a variety of brand new artworks, including Bird Hive VR to the Mechanical Heart by Felicity Jones and the Umbrella Tree by Tim Hill and Dave Young (Rag and Bone).

If you dare to journey through this rabbit hole, you must prepare to be taken on a journey from a state of nature to a tribal metropolis. Kendal Callers are cordially invited to Lost Eden, through costumed walkabout, spontaneous gatherings, workshops and encounters with newly commissioned installation art.
