Mysteryland is less than four weeks away, and there are plenty of reasons New Yorkers should be scrambling to get those last minute tickets. There’s the one thing we’ve already discussed – the lineup is insanely dope, and that Holy Ground opening night party is going to be one for the ages. But there’s even more reasons for Brooklynites to rejoice. It was announced last week that Smorgasburg will be taking over to make sure that we have plenty of gourmet goodies to keep us dancing all weekend. Get ready for Beats n’ Eats with names like the Ice Cream Disco, Chickpea & Olive (for our veggie conscious friends) and Dan and John’s Wings (for those who flock for poultry). Even Verboten is joining the party, bringing their signature BBQ upstate. Check out the full vendor lineup HERE.
Just remember, camping is ALMOST SOLD OUT. If you want your chance to party with A-Trak, GTA, Josh Wink and all the other artists playing exclusively for campers on Friday, 5/22. And while you visit the site to BUY YOUR TICKET. You can check out their new trailer for the 2015 festival:
It’s gonna be EPIC!

Firstly, Holy Ground camping is now 90% sold out, so if you want to check out that awesome Friday pre-party, you’re going to want to snag your 3-day tickets like, yesterday! You can get them here. And in case you missed, the announcement, this party is going to be mega – GTA, Josh Wink, Maceo Plex, A-Trak and Richie Hawtin, just to name a few.
Also, SINGLE DAY TICKETS are now on sale! If you want to come play, but you have to appease your mom at the lake house for part of your Memorial Day weekend, have no fear.

The big day is finally here! Mysteryland just dropped their lineup for the Memorial Day weekend festival (or if you were perusing Kill Frenzy’s Facebook page yesterday, you may have already gotten the scoop), and HOT DAMN it’s awesome. In a sea of summer lineup announcements that look exactly the same, Mysteryland will bring something truly different and spectacular to Bethel Woods, NY.
Already broken up by day, fans can decide when they want to attend. There’s no way I’m missing any part of the weekend. Saturday is headed up by New Zealand rockers Empire of the Sun, Chapel Hill, NC darling turned superstar Porter Robinson (Live) and Norwegian DJ and Producer, Kygo. The Boat is also full of live sets that day with Griz and Gramatik bro-ing at on top. The Verboten stage brings house stars like Lee Burridge and Damian Lazarus, while Zeitgeist offers original dubstepper, Skream.
On Sunday, Moombahton is king when Dillon Francis (returning for the second year) and Diplo twerk it on the mainstage. Bro Safari brings his zoo with appearances from ILOVEMAKONNEN and TJR. Webster Hall gives a stage to up and comers like Sweater Beats and Aussie badass Anna Lunoe. And French Express brings a sick house lineup with Moon Boots and Perseus leading the list.
The use of curators was very wise this year, offering different worlds within the already magical Mysteryland setting. When I’m struggling to find the discrepancies among other EDM festival lineups, this one stands out above the rest. You can still snag your 3-Day Holy Ground camping tickets HERE, but do it NOW. These are probably going to sell out TODAY. Stay tuned for details on tickets by day.

Original Post 11/17/2014
Tis the season for next summer’s festival announcements! Big news from the organizers over at ID&T today – Mysteryland USA will be returning to the original Woodstock 1969 site for it’s second year. The quiet, upstate town of Bethel Woods welcomed more than 20,000 visitors and the world’s best electronic artists including Kaskade, Moby, Dillon Francis (AKA my one true love), Big Gigantic and more to 2014’s inaugural event. Today we found out that the festival, set to take place over Memorial Day weekend May 22-24, 2015, will expand to a three-day format for those who opt to stay in the new and improved Holy Ground camping.
Speaking of new and improved, in addition to the Camping Circus and BangOn! NYC Bus, a new stage dubbed “The Pineapple Express” will be added, making for three stages in the camping area. Friday’s “kick-off” party will take place from 2 PM – 2 AM in Holy Ground camping, which will have additional capacity in 2015. We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so campers can grab their morning meal from the expanded Plaza Central and stroll over to “The Breakfast Club” opening parties, where music starts everyday at 11 AM. This.Sounds.Baller. And don’t be haunted by the mornings and nights spent trekking through mud. Gravel paths will be integrated into the layout as part of the new mud prevention plans. After all, we live and we learn.
Organizers aren’t wasting any time with Pre-sale announcements either. MasterCard holders have first dibs with an exclusive pre-sale taking place on Dec. 3rd. On December 4th at 10 AM pre-sale tickets will go on sale for fans who attended last year’s festival and those who registered online ahead of time. Log on early to secure your spot and snag a ticket while lower tier pricing lasts (this went hella fast last year). General on-sale starts Dec. 5th at 10 AM. Visit the official Mysteryland Website to register to buy tickets and get access to more information.
