Phoenix’s Lost Lake Festival to feature dozens of local eateries, breweries
PHOENIX — Arizona residents who will attend the Lost Lake Festival in Phoenix will experience more than just great music — they will experience great food as well.
The festival attendees will get a taste of the “burgeoning culinary scene” in Phoenix at the Lost Lake Festival, which will take place from Oct. 20-22 at Steele Indian School Park.
According to a recent press release, more than 30 top local chefs, restaurants, and breweries will be featured at the festival, “with local eats at Phoenix Flavors, craft beers at Brewpark, BBQ at The Lava Pit, and mezcal and tequila cocktails and tastings at Nectar of the Gods.”
Chris Bianco, a James Beard award-winning chef who owns Pizzeria Bianco in downtown Phoenix, served as the festival’s Culinary Ambassador and helped “[bring] together the best of local chefs and restaurants.”
Phoenix Flavors will feature more than 25 local chefs and restaurants, including Pizzeria Bianco, Clever Koi, Ocotillo, Frites Street, Gadzooks, Stock & Stable, Casa Anejo, and Pokitrition.
Brewpark will feature more than a dozen breweries — including local classics SanTan Brewing Co., Phoenix Ale Brewery, and Huss Brewing Co. — and favorites from across the country, such as Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Co., Saint Archer Brewing Co. and Blue Moon Brewing Co. It will also feature backyard style games.
The Lava Pit, the festival’s hub for barbecue, will “serve up delicious eats grilled on the hot lava prepared by pitmasters from Starlite and Tom’s BBQ.”
Nectar of the Gods will feature some Southwestern cocktail classics, including tasting flights of anejo, reposado, blanco and mezcal and a selection of artisanal cocktails “featuring the flavors of the Southwest.”
In the press release, Bianco said he is “excited by Lost Lake’s dedication to making this event a reflection of the Phoenix culture and community, including our local culinary scene.”
“My philosophy is that food is a shared experience, and that’s what we wanted to create with Phoenix Flavors, a space where festival-goers can come together to enjoy a taste of the Valley just as much as they enjoy the music,” he added.
Lost Lake to bring big artists to Valley
The Lost Lake Festival will feature more than 40 music acts on multiple stages, including headliners The Killers, Chance the Rapper, Major Lazer and Odesza.
Popular bands such as Run the Jewels, the Pixies and the Roots will also play, while rappers Ludacris and Lil Jon will also get the crowd dancing.
The festival will also feature life-sized games like pool and foosball.
The festival was created by Superfly, a production company that created Tennessee’s famed Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival and the Outside Lands Music Festival in San Francisco.
