Celebrating 25 years and the fourth annual stateside residency, Mysteryland is back with an all-star line-up to thrill fans between June 9th and 12th, this year.
Paying tribute to its roots and as the home of Woodstock, the world’s longest-running electronic music festival has completely re-invented the musical landscape of Bethel Woods. This year, the festival will feature an all-star cast that includes rising artists as well as world class performers.
With a line-up that boasts of Major Lazer and Run The Jewels, we can only imagine how electrifying this festival will be. The smooth flows of G-Easy will surely captivate the audience on the Catskill Mountains, this summer, putting the first night of the festival to an epic end. Brooklyn’s very own, LCD Soundsystem, will perform on Saturday, amidst rumours of a new album as well as on the back of a successful tour.
And not that they need an introduction, but electronic music duo, Major Lazer, will surely leave fans wanting more as they close the show in a grand finale on Sunday night! What’s great is that this year the organizers are going for a dynamic mix of artists and genres as opposed to the primary focus on traditional dance music only. This way, the festival aims to reach out to new genres and music lovers across the board, opening up a whole new audience to the event.
The supporting headline acts include Colorado’s Big Gigantic, bringing us his seductive horn swag and South Africa’s rave-rap orchestrator of dance, Die Antwoord. Not to mention, the creative sounds of prodigal producer Porter Robinson and the king of trap music, RL Grime. Rap duo, Run The Jewels, who were recently dubbed “hip hop’s most intense truth tellers” by Rolling Stone, complete the full line-up of headliners.
All the way from New York, the festival will witness the illuminating live-acts of Bob Moses, electro-chill producer, Jai Wolf and Founder of Fool’s Gold Records, turntablist and driving force in the electronic-rap movement A-Trak, as a further compliment to the incredible line-up.
Rounding off the list of the top artists to be seen at the Mysteryland Festival are Eats Everything, Baauer, Louis The Child, Cashmere Cat, futuristic beat architect Clams Casino, Duke Dumont, Robert Delong, Elohim, Skream, Hot Creations label frontman and 2017 Mysteryland stage host Jamie Jones, Patrick Topping, Ekali, tastemaking queen of bass Anna Lunoe, acid house DJ/producer Boys Noize, Ghastly, and Snails.
“Made Event, a LiveStyle, Inc. company, with a great history in New York as the premier festival producer in the market, is joining ID&T in presenting one of the longest running festivals in the world, Mysteryland. It is often said that the elements of a great festival are the DNA of the founders, the talent line-up, and a killer site. Mysteryland has all of that going for it since Bethel Woods is mind-blowing as a destination location for music and the culture behind it.” says Randy Phillips, LiveStyle President and CEO.
Known for their desire to push the limits when it comes to design and stage production, this year, the Mysteryland Festival has called upon the pros, namely, elrow, Future Classic, and Paradise to create an immersive experience. Seen as a driving force and a global party brand, elrow was crowned ‘Club of the Year’ by Mixmag and is all set to turn Bethel Woods into a lavish party of gigantic proportions! Sydney-based progressive collective, Future Classic, will be breaking it down on the dance floor as they get a diverse mix of performers to choose everything from future bass to acid sound. However, if a more intimate party vibe is your scene, don’t fret. Paradise will do everything in their power to spread the underground vibes in a more relaxed atmosphere.
