Yet another EDM festival is coming to the US next year. One of the world's oldest electronic music festivals, Mysteryland will take place in one of the most famous music festival settings, Woodstock.
For 20 years, Mysteryland, hosted by Dutch producer, ID&T has taken place in the Netherlands. Now however, it will make its debut in Bethel Woods, New York next summer over Memorial Day weekend. While Mysterland will attract thousands of festival goers, the multi- day festival will only host 20,000 guests per day.
Producers say that Mysteryland will be very different from the Electric Daisy events that take place in New York. Mysteryland will showcase over 20 different genres of electronic music, such as trance, house, dubstep and more. The festival's budget will be spent mostly on theater, street dancers, interactive art and movies- as opposed to the salaries of celebrity DJs.
