The 22 stages of mystery
Mysteryland’s line-up is an eclectic blend of artists that represent every nook and cranny of electronic dance music. Whether you like it, love it, hate it or dream of it– we offer it in our massive and diverse line-up! Internationally acclaimed artists along with newcomers will feed your musical appetite. Whether you’re into big room house, afro-beats from cheerful tropical acts, banging techno, heart-pounding hardstyle, funky jazz, bass heavy dubstep, underground house AND everything in-between – we have you covered! CLR, Hyte, Red Bull Studio Live, and Studio 80 present a promising techno programme of talent and living legends. The indoor main stage, 'The Big Top,' is hosted by Don’t Let Daddy Know and programmed with big room house. Q-dance and Qult will feature harder styles that will get your body moving. Resist provides a roster of trap, bass music, and DnB. Other collaborations include L'Afrique, The Amazing Agency, and Bollywood Bar – they will take hip hop, R&B, African house, UK house, garage, deep house, and soulful house to the ears and hearts of our visitors.
Endless paths and whimsical hidden gems
Mysteryland is one big discovery trip. Besides the musical party, Mysteryland also offers tons of creative, artistic and cultural pleasures. For example, Kate Raudenbush, an American artist best known for her installations at Burning Man, made an exclusive creation for Mysteryland. The magic forest called ‘Sprookjesbos’ is richly filled with illuminating art, bizarre acts, hidden surprises, and quaint eateries. On the other side of the forest lies an oasis of…pineapples! In the Pineapple Paradise Caribbean, acts such as Trafassi, DJ Moortje, and Kuenta i Tambu will take the stage.
Stunning visual landscapes amid music and revelry
For the first time at Mysteryland, a comprehensive literary program of leading writers will be presented (more details soon). Furthermore, you can clean your chakras at the Healing Garden and dance to the sounds of world music with the grass between your toes at Totem. Just when you thought you’d seen it all, you can go crooning at the Crooning Jazz Club, get crazy with geishas in Owari No Nai, or win a gig as an ‘overnight’ DJ at Club Godverdomme.
Collaboration with Red Bull Studios and Kunstbende
At Mysteryland, we know talent knows no age. The festival has increasingly added fresh up-and-comers to the line-up and has partnerships with the Red Bull Studios, Studio 80, and Kunstbende. Artists who have already earned their creds, choose a talent. Three acts will play at the Red Bull Studios Live and Studio 80 stage. The winner of the Kunstbende 2013 (a famous Dutch variety talent show) opens the main stage.
Good beats and delicious eats
Tasty food is the essential fuel for a day and night of dancing. At Mysteryland, you can enjoy a variety of savoury cuisine and flavourful beverages that meet every dietary need - gluten-free, lactose-free, fair trade, vegan, organic, and vegetarian delights. We are also happy to announce a Mysteryland first: a fine dining restaurant, run by top chef Jonathan Karpatios. He cooks exclusively with products from the Haarlemmermeer region and many home grown delicacies.
We are green
In the past years we have made great progress in the realm of greening our event and are proud of our Industry Green certification which we received for our sustainable efforts and involvement to date. This certification was specially developed by Julie's Bicycle, an organization devoted to helping large events become more sustainable. This prize is the highest recognition for sustainability within the creative, art, music, and theatre industry. This year, Mysteryland again invests in sustainable efforts such as CO2 emission reduction along with other major contributions to Mother Nature.
