Some of the most appealing artists of this sunny edition include Carl Cox, Kölsch, Nastia, Joseph Capriati and Sven Väth. In the Big Top Live, for the first time in Mysteryland's history, electronic live bands are featured, including Above and Beyond, Netsky (live) and Sigma.
Festival Director Carina Kornfeind: "This third multi-day edition was launched in a fantastic atmosphere last night at the pre-party campsite with more than 50% of foreign visitors. The new layout of the festival site, wider musical programming and spectacular new stages, including our special Techno Dome will be highly welcomed by our visitors. If you want to stay relevant in the market for 24 years, you should dare to innovate and keep investing in the visitors' experience. This seems to be good and we are very pleased.
Mysteryland is the mother of all electronic music festivals. Starting in 1993 it was the first festival to bring all the different genres of electronic music together. Mysteryland is not only the first annual electronic music festival in the world, it is also the festival that gave birth to Tomorrowland. Which once began as the “smaller” Belgium version of Mysteryland.
Yesterday is history. Today is a gift. Tomorrow is a Mystery!
Mysteryland has been standing out ever since as the annual highlight of the Dutch festival summer. It has found a permanent home at the beautiful Floriade terrain in Haarlemmermeer, near Amsterdam. On these enchanting grounds, it has bloomed into one of the scene’s most diverse, open-minded and inspirational festivals.
