The Netherlands is a huge player in the world of electronic music, with a proliferation of Dutch DJs striking global fame and fortune. It doesn’t come as a huge surprise then that one of the oldest dance music festivals originated in The Netherlands. Established in 1993, Mysteryland is a series of electronic dance music festivals organized by the promoter ID&T.
Mysteryland’s multi-faceted and multisensory approach is based on a strong philosophy to be more than just about music and dance. At the heart of the event is the idea of “peace, love, music”, with music acts focused on discovery, providing festivalgoers with an interactive, fun-filled and enriching experience. Today, legends from the international dance scene intermingle with the next wave of up-and-coming new and local talents to throw a memorable party for electronic music lovers from all walks of life. Each year, Mysteryland is set upon beautiful grounds around the globe, including Haarlemmermeerse Bos, an exhibition ground that hosted the 2002 edition of the Dutch gardening festival Floriade. The festival is traditionally held on the final Saturday of August.
With performances from the likes of ACRAZE, Alan Walker, Carl Cox, DJ Snake, Dom Dolla, Fedde le Grand, Frequencerz, Kapuchon, Kölsch, Kris Kross Amsterdam, Oliver Heldens, Paul Kalkbrenner, Ronnie Flex & The Fam, Sefa, Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano, Sven Väth, Tijana T, and Volvox among others, the festival promises to yet again be a magical highlight of an already unprecedented festival season.
Mysteryland brings over 300 of the world’s most praised artists to perform on over 22 breathtaking stages. Festival-goers can dance their hearts out in various outdoor areas and enormous tents with laser shows and state-of-the-art sound systems. Bringing together a variation in stages and artists, Mysteryland is a true jack of all trades; from house, techno, trance, EDM, hardstyle, and hardcore to Latin, pop, R&B, hip hop, and Afrobeats.
