REVIEW: Mysteryland 2015 Returns to Bethel Woods Bigger and Better

Mysteryland returned to Bethel Woods, NY over Memorial Day Weekend for it’s second annual USA installment. Last year’s rainy weather and excessive mud put a damper on some people’s first visit to the three-day electronic festival, however you wouldn’t have known based on the lively, ambitious audience who showed up in full force to watch artists like Porter Robinson, Empire of the Sun, Dillon Francis and Diplo on the original Woodstock grounds. The attendees more than tripled with 50,000 people in attendance throughout the weekend. Holy Ground camping was also sold out this year at 10,000 people, which was a much larger number actually staying on the premises than last year. This year rain was exchanged for extreme cold (32 degrees on Friday night with a wind chill on the hill that dipped much lower), but this didn’t seem to discourage folks from committing to the party. In fact, I’d say they came out even harder. (But for real, who else froze their ass off that night? That was some next level Discovery Channel I Shouldn’t be Alive shit.)
