Mysteryland, the world’s longest-running dance festival, today presents the first part of the 2015 line-up. On Saturday August 29 and Sunday August 30, festivalgoers will embark on a weekend-long adventure in a world filled with electronic music, art and culture. Just like every other year, the line-up will include a combination of world-famous names and upcoming talent. Crowd-pullers this year include Martin Garrix – whose only festival performance this summer is at Mysteryland – and global stars like Alesso, Apollonia, Art Department, Ben Sims, Chris Liebing, Dave Clarke, Dubfire, Hercules & Love Affair, Jeff Mills, Joris Voorn, Knife Party, Maya Jane Coles, Nicky Romero, Oliver Heldens, Pan-Pot, Porter Robinson, STERAC, Steve Angello, Ten Walls live, The Martinez Brothers, Tiga and Wildstylez. General tickets to Mysteryland, a festival that always sells out, go on sale on Saturday 7 March at 10:00 am CET.
The fans’ wishes
‘We are so happy that we can offer our visitors a two-day program. Not only can they party longer, but most of all, they have more time to explore the wide variety of music, arts and culture on offer. Besides, we are proud that we can give a platform to so many talents, artists and creatives’, according to Duncan Stutterheim, founder of ID&T. The ‘Kunstroute’, an art path in collaboration with the government’s culture program ‘Cultuur & Ondernemen’ and the exposition with the Tropenmuseum are the must-sees of the program, says Stutterheim. Mysteryland’s full program will be announced by the end of March.
Global stars and new talent
For two whole days, festivalgoers will dance to performances by both local and international artists. The entire spectrum of electronic music will be on show. In addition to the acts listed above, acts including Frontliner, Noisecontrollers, Ummet Ozcan, Kris Kross, Dillon Francis, Dominik Eulberg & Gabriel Ananda, Firebeatz, Mightyfools, Vinai and ROD will also be taking to the stage. Festival partners such as CLR, Hyte, Beatport and Joris Voorn Presents will be responsible for techno, techhouse and deephouse, while Planet Delsin and Studio 80 will host the Vinyl Only areas, where this vintage music medium will be celebrated with all the honour it deserves. It goes without saying that Q-dance will be present on both days, with highlights including Wildstylez, Frontliner and Psyko Punkz. Kris Kross and Yours Truly will be responsible for the line up at the Heineken Starclub where turntable legend DJ Jazzy Jeff will perform amongst others. Open-minded Amsterdam festival ‘Milkshake’ will be claiming an island of its own with The Mini Madness Milkshake Island, where Hercules & Love Affair will be performing. Other live performances include Netsky, Planetary Assault Systems en Ten Walls.
