Mysteryland USA 2016

Mysteryland USA returns to the Woodstock Grounds in 2017 with a diverse initial lineup!


Mysteryland USA is sort of an enigma.  It’s one of those interesting European festivals that broke into the East Coast when ID&T forged an alliance with SFX Entertainment and made a splash when it announced it was taking over the original Woodstock grounds.  In 2017, it returns again to that special location but at a slightly later date, June 9th – 12th, 2017. This year the hosting partners for the event include some major names that will definitely be bringing some great sounds. These hosts include Elrow, Future Classic, Paradise, Bushwick A/V, Desert Hearts, House of Yes, and Icarus!

Take a look at our experience at Mysteryland USA last year HERECamping passes and tickets are already on sale, and can be found HERE!

The lineup details, at least the first wave, dropped today and boy is it varied.  Check it out below and let us know your thoughts on the lineup in the comments!

  1. This lineup is trash and this incessant push to market it as anything else is total disingenuous bullshit. Organizers have clearly demonstrated they have no respect for ticket holders, greedy parasites. If they wanted Mysteryland to appeal to a broader audience they should have never done a presale. What they did was set expectations, and then defraud every person who bought presale tickets based on those expectations. It’s shady and speaks volumes about the non-existent character of the trash bags running this event. These people are gross. There are just to many good festivals out there to have to be disrespected by something as sub-par and overpriced as Mysteryland. Stay away and look else ware, this is not the festival you are looking for.

    • Can you elaborate on what expectations you felt should have been met? Were there artists that were hinted at?

      I personally haven’t heard much about the festival outside of those who have been stoked on the amount of house curated and had positive experiences in the past.

      • Mysteryland dropped a lineup for 2017 with two headliners who this year have done a number of collaborations with top 40 artists. I would argue this choice was geared toward widening the appeal of Mysteryland to attract a more generic but wider audience (based on an interview where they said they wanted to be more like Coachella). They hyped a lineup for months they knew, in my opinion, was not in the spirit of past lineups so they would not impact early bird ticket sales, and then dropped widely palatable headliners to attract people to Mysteryland who may not normally attend an EDM festival. Combined with the fact this is first year they have opened up camping to 19+, the money grab becomes widely apparent. The onus is on my. I paid for a ticket before the lineup was announced based on what Mysteryland told me it was; I just wish Mysteryland told me this year it wanted to be something different. Shit like this is the consequence of making everything “accessible” to everyone, you sacrifice what made it special and unique in it’s own right.

        • Gotcha, I understand your frustration but they did say they were going more mainstream to attract more people…always sucks to see a festival sacrifice things. I’ll admit the lineup this year has some pretty great acts on it though…
