Celebrating its fourth annual stateside residency and 25th year in existence, the world’s longest-running electronic music festival, Mysteryland, will open a portal to an extraordinary world this June 9th - 12th, 2017, inviting fans to enter the gates of Bethel Woods, New York. Embracing its roots as home to the legendary Woodstock festival, the masterful creators behind Mysteryland USA have completely reimagined the musical landscape of Bethel Woods for this year’s edition, assembling an all-star cast of emerging artists alongside a master class of talent.
Captivating the Catskill Mountains this summer will be the smooth flows of G-Eazy, closing out Friday and the first night of Mysteryland USA. Also joining the roster of headliners are Brooklyn’s own LCD Soundsystem performing on Saturday night amid rumors of a forthcoming studio album and following an epic comeback tour in 2016, plus the always-electrifying Major Lazer, who will undoubtedly leave revelers wanting more during the grand finale on Sunday night. Setting the stage for an insanely dynamic weekend, the headliners offer up a taste of what to expect as Mysteryland USA expands this year’s curation beyond the realm of traditional dance music to include a more diverse selection of music genres, satisfying festival aficionados across the board.
Supporting headliner acts include the sultry horn swagger of Colorado’s Big Gigantic juxtaposed against South Africa’s explosive, rave-rap orchestrators of dance Die Antwoord, plus the imaginative sounds of prodigal producer Porter Robinson colliding across the grounds with relentless beats delivered by kingpin of trap music, RL Grime. Recently dubbed “hip hop’s most intense truth tellers” by Rolling Stone, Killer Mike and El-P complete the full list of 2017 headliners, dominating the stage together as fierce rap duo Run The Jewels.
Mysteryland USA turned to the concrete jungle of New York to further complement the incredible lineup, bringing illuminating live-act Bob Moses, electro-chill producer Jai Wolf and Founder of Fool’s Gold Records, turntablist and driving force in the electronic-rap movement A-Trak to the fields. Rounding out the list of top names include Eats Everything, Baauer, Louis The Child, Cashmere Cat, futuristic beat architect Clams Casino, Duke Dumont, Robert Delong, Elohim, Skream, Hot Creations label frontman and 2017 Mysteryland stage host Jamie Jones, Patrick Topping, Ekali, tastemaking queen of bass Anna Lunoe, acid house DJ/producer Boys Noize, Ghastly, and Snails.

"Made Event, a LiveStyle, Inc. company, with a great history in New York as the premier festival producer in the market, is joining ID&T in presenting one of the longest running festivals in the world, Mysteryland. It is often said that the elements of a great festival are the DNA of the founders, the talent line-up, and a killer site. Mysteryland has all of that going for it since Bethel Woods is mind-blowing as a destination location for music and the culture behind it.” - Randy Phillips, LiveStyle President and CEO” - Randy Phillips, LiveStyle President and CEO
Consistently recognized worldwide for visionary design and unique stage production, Mysteryland USA has newly employed the ingenuity of three internationally acclaimed vibe selectors to host distinct immersive experiences, pushing each stage to the next level: elrow, Future Classic, and Paradise. Deemed ‘Club of the Year’ by Mixmag and driving force as a global party brand, elrow makes its way to Bethel Woods to transform the ethereal grounds into a lavish party of epic proportions, leaving a trail of confetti and euphoria in its wake. Sydney-based, progressive collective, Future Classic, will be throwing everything but the kitchen sink onto the dance floor, curating an eclectic lineup of artists to select tracks ranging from future bass to acid house and everything in-between. Those in search of more intimate, underground vibes in the midst of the pulsating festival, will find precisely that when they enter Paradise - an offshoot of Mysteryland artist Jamie Jones’ top rated party in Ibiza.
Continuing its tradition of celebrating the works of New York artists, labels and collectives, the festival invites hosting partners: Bushwick A/V, House of Yes, and Safer at Night to redefine the meaning of Mysteryland USA through their respective lenses. Leading the charge in the NY afterhours scene, Bushwick A/V curates an uncompromising and eclectic roster of talent, bringing together local heroes and the international underground in unprecedented alchemy. Never taking no for an answer, Bushwick-based House of Yes will turn the festival on its head with themed day and night parties, aerial performances, laser beams, and no shortage of champagne. New York and Berlin-based label, Safer At Night, will provide festival attendees with a house and techno sanctuary under the cover of darkness, with two out of the three founders, Lawrence Lee and Cranks, at the helm.
Tipping their hats to West Coast culture, Mysteryland USA invites San Francisco and New York-based collective behind “moving sculpture, roaming art gallery and music stage all in one massive vehicle,” Icarus to land their Alien meets Studio 54 ship onto the Woodstock grounds. Dusty globetrotting brigade, Desert Hearts, will be bringing the heat, curating a community-oriented house and techno gathering one of the festival days, achieving a memorable energetic ambiance that pushes house and techno to the forefront.
