With festivals all around the world slowly revealing 2015 dates, November 17 saw the announcement of 2015’s Mysteryland USA at the Bethel Woods Center For The Arts in Bethel, NY slated for May 22-24. This is the same venue of the original Woodstock. Line up has yet to be determined.
Mysteryland USA is the world’s longest electronic music and dance festival. This marks the second time in the festival’s 21 year history where it is being held in the United States. Here are more details via Mysteryland.us:
“After making a historic U.S. debut last year, the celebrated Mysteryland festival returns in 2015 for its second edition at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, New York, the site of the legendary 1969 Woodstock festival and just a two hour drive away from New York City. Mysteryland is the longest running electronic music, culture and arts festival in the world, active since 1993 with international editions in Chile, the Netherlands and the United States. Taking place over Memorial Day Weekend 2015, Mysteryland’s second installment will expand to present an even more immersive festival experience, starting with new and improved campgrounds with increased capacity and camping options, plus more musical programming to offer campground visitors a full three-day festival experience.”
They also announced several camping and VIP options:
Holy Ground Camping: To create an even better camping experience, Mysteryland 2015 adds a new outdoor camping stage dubbed “The Pineapple Paradise” in addition to the return of the Camping Circus and BangOn! bus, for a total of three Holy Ground stages. An exclusive pre-festival kick-off party for Holy Ground campers will take place on Friday, May 22, 2015 from 2PM – 2AM, for a total of 12 hours of music, art and revelry. Additionally, opening parties called “The Breakfast Club” will kick off each day of the festival starting at 11AM to lengthen the weekend festival experience for all Holy Ground campers.
Mysteryland 2015 will also feature expanded Holy Ground camping grounds with increased capacity and more visitor facilities such as showers and restrooms. Free water stations will be available, providing hydration to campers, and gravel roads will be put in place as part of the festival’s mud-prevention operations. A revamped Plaza Central, the beating heart of the camping grounds, will expand to feature additional food and beverage options, plus more markets and outdoor and indoor seating.
Mysteryland offers multiple packages for the ultimate camping experience, including the introduction of “Easy Tents,” featuring a Mysteryland-branded pre-set up tent with a two-person airbed along with two sleeping bags, located in the Easy Tent section of the Holy Ground. The Easy Tent package includes either two Nomad Weekend tickets or two Bohemium Premium Weekend tickets for access to the festival and camping grounds.
