The Netherlands' own electronic music festival Mysteryland to make its US debut in 2014 at Woodstock site Bethel Woods.
Mysteryland will return for its 20th consecutive year this weekend (August 24th 2013), but there's more exciting news as it's revealed that next year's event will take place at New York's Bethel Woods - the site of the unforgettable Woodstock 1969!
Mysteryland is the oldest electronic musical in the world and is held every year in the Netherlands - it has come to Floriade in Haarlemmermeer for the past ten years, apart from 2011 where it took to Chile for the first time. This year, though, organisers have decided to reach a different kind of audience by holding the concert on the holy grounds of the most legendary rock festival in history - Bethel Woods Center for the Arts. It will debut in the US on Memorial Day weekend from May 23rd - 26th 2014 and we're expecting a memorable line-up to match.
CEO of Bethel Woods Center Darlene Fedun explained why they've let Mysteryland come to town. 'We chose ID&T's Mysteryland brand as the first modern era festival on the hallowed grounds for its belief in many of the same principles as our own organization', she said. 'Creativity, unity, social responsibility and a focus on the experience of the guest.'
Those making the festival this weekend will no doubt have an experience to remember also with Main Stage sets from Florida house musician Steve Aoki & Steve Angello, 'Put Your Hands Up 4 Detroit' hitmaker Fedde Le Grand and electro house DJ Porter Robinson. Unsurprisingly, all 60,000 tickets have now sold out.
