27-28 August 2016
Mysteryland, the longest running dance festival in the world, reveals the Holy Ground Camping program with a wealth of exclusive performances and back-to-back sessions that won’t be heard at any other festival. The Holy Ground Camping will host the pre-party on Friday August 26th and the after-party on Saturday August 27th at the Camping Circus and Saloon. Dave Clarke will execute a classic techno session and Seth Troxler will take over the Saloon on Saturday with his Big Tittie Surprise imprint showcasing a special b2b set alongside Skream and Tom Trago.
Mysteryland loves surprises. At the Camping Circus on Friday, hardstyle rockers Psyko Punkz tackle techno and Dirt Caps plays their favourite hip-hop tracks. On the same day, local heroes join forces with international masterminds, as The Saloon welcomes Cinnaman to the stage with Breach, the British DJ and producer who had the worldwide hit ‘Jack’ and has collaborated with Kelis and Andreya Triana. Continuing the theme of cross-border collaborations, San Proper teams up with Chicago house legend Tyree Cooper, William Kouam Djoko invites Ryan Crosson from Visionquest into the booth, and Boris Werner will join the stage together with Parisian Djebali for a back-to-back mix.
This year visitors will be able to stay at the Holy Ground Camping from Friday August 26th until Monday August 29th, giving festival goers more time to party and to discover the wide range of music, art and culture on show. In 2015, the Holy Ground Camping passes sold out in two hours, and with the entertainment announced for 2016 they are expected get snapped up in a flash once again! Visitors who secure a ticket for the Holy Ground Camping, have the option to sleep over after the festival in their own tent, or select from a range of luxury camping options available, such as a tipi or a luxurious tent with real beds.
Mysteryland takes place on Saturday August 27th and Sunday August 28 in Haarlemmermeer, The Netherlands. This year, Mysteryland bursts at the seams with two full days of stages showcasing sounds from: EDM to afrobeat, techno to hiphop and hardstyle to disco. The Culture & Arts program of Mysteryland this year is world class. Several leading international artists create installations for the festival. The Mainstage is designed by American Kate Raudenbush, who is best known for her work at Burning Man Festival. As a gesture to all residents of the city of Haarlemmermeer, artist duo ATM creates a lasting work of art from recycled wood beneath the infamous pyramid. The collective WERC will be at the foot of the imposing pyramid with a light installation on the water where all luminous elements can move independently.
Mysteryland began in 1993 and is the longest running dance festival in the world. The festival focuses on electronic music, art, culture, talent, and sustainability. Mysteryland has been awarded by Julie’s Bicycle with a “3 Stars Green Industry Certificate” which is the highest designation for sustainability within the creative arts, music, and theater industries. The festival is rated three stars by A Greener Festival Award. This year, Mysteryland is celebrating a multi-day edition for the second time in the former Floriade Terrain in Haarlemmermeer. Extended international editions of Mysteryland take place at the foot of the Andes in Chile, and the legendary Woodstock ’69 site of Bethel Woods in New York, USA. Mysteryland is a concept of ID&T.
