Mysteryland Announces Line-Up for its First USA Festival

Last summer, it was announced that one of the largest electronic music festivals in the world would finally make its debut in the good ol' USA. This Memorial Day weekend, Mysteryland, which has been going strong in its home country of the Netherlands since 1993, will be taking residence at the hallowed site in Bethel Woods, NY where the original Woodstock was once held. Dutch promotion outfit ID&T made their first major mark on America last September when they hosted TomorrowWorld, the US version of the legendary TomorrowLand held each year in Belgium, in Atlanta to rave reviews (that pun was terrible, I'll show myself out).

After much speculation and anticipation, the lineup for Mysteryland's stateside debut has been announced, topped by headliners Steve Aoki and Kaskade. Other notable names that will be performing include DIllon Francis and Flosstradamus (including a set from their collaborative side-project, Dillstradamus), Nicky Romero, electro-sax duo Big Gigantic, and rising stars such as DVBBS and The Chainsmokers. In addition to the main festival stages, there will be Sunday School, which has been billed as a mini-festival within the fest itself and features a special vinyl-only stage where the DJs (inclduing Detroit techno legend Carl Craig) get back to basic and spin directly from their turntables. Q-Dance will be hosting artists as well, showcasing what they like to call "the harder side of dance", primarily hardstyle and hardcore artists.

The first run of tickets was already sold out prior to the announcement, but the next tier will be on sale shortly according to the official website. For the full lineup, ticket info, and general information, check out the official site at  (but be warned, at the time of this writing the site seems to be experiencing problems due to high traffic).
