Bassnectar, Skrillex, Odesza Top Mysteryland USA 2016 Phase One Lineup
'Tis the season for summer festival lineup reveals, and Mysteryland USA has announced the 2016 return to the historic grounds of the original 1969 Woodstock at Bethel Woods Performing Arts Center in New York's Catskills, with Bassnectar, Skrillex and Odesza as headliners.
Billed as the world's longest-running electronic music, culture and arts festival, Mysteryland's third annual U.S. event will also feature Zeds Dead, Tchami, GRiZ, Young Thug, Mija, Gesaffelstein, Claude Vonstroke and The Chainsmokers -- and that's just part of the Phase One lineup.
The festival is known for its diverse lineups, typically pairing A-list headliners with underground support. Each act represents a different part of the EDM spectrum and brings something unique to the show. Previous Mysteryland festivals featured side stages curated by New York-based tastemakers such as Webster Hall and Verboten nightclubs, as well as niche imprints like Adam Beyer's Drumcode and Q-Dance, so there's no telling what the next lineup phase will bring.
This first phase of artists -- and a promise to feature the art and experiential programming that helps create the peace, love and dance music vibes the festival stands for -- sets Mysteryland apart from the crowd of EDM events.
While the quality of the lineup remains consistent with what Nomads (the festival's affectionate term for attendees) have come to expect, the festival is changing a few things this year. EDM Tunes reports the event is being held June 10-13 instead of the usual Memorial Day weekend.
And according to We Got This Covered, Mysteryland is opening its gates to a younger crowd; everyone 19 and up can now join the party. However, camping is still limited to the 21-and-up crowd.
Tickets go on sale to the general public on Jan. 19. For more information, visit Mysteryland USA's website.
