The biggest dance music festival of The Netherlands – Mysteryland, has announced its 2018 hosting partners. The three-day event with on-site camping grounds will return to the former Floriade terrain near Amsterdam from August 24th until August 26th. A limited amount of Early Bird tickets will go on sale on Tuesday, February 27th at 12h (CET).
Following the tradition, the Main Stage and Q-dance stage will be 2 of the largest among the 17 areas, inviting international stars of the electronic dance music scene to headline Mysteryland this summer. And this is just the beginning, as the organisation will be joining forces with some exciting partners.
Hardwell’s label Revealed will, for the first time, host a stage, bringing electro, big room, progressive and bass house to the northern festival grounds of Mysteryland. With a huge international following, this brand new collaboration promises to attract dance music fans from all the corners of the world. In order to cope with the big demand, the massive Big Top tent will be extended in size. Sunnery James and Ryan Marciano will also host their own area for the very first time. Their hot and steamy Sexy by Nature concept will conquer a brand new stage situated right on the lake.
Another landmark for Mysteryland 2018 is that the world’s most renowned Trance event, Trance Energy, will return to host a stage, alongside with the hottest DJ’s the trance scene has to offer. Expect emotional build-ups, crisp clear sound systems and epic breaks on a laser filled dance floor. Across the lake, trap duo Yellow Claw, founders of the Barong Family, promises to invade its brand new stage with massive bass lines and intense drops. Right at the top of the pyramid, his royal hotness Tony Junior will also host his very special secret area. Like all mysterious spots, this gem is hard to find, but worth the quest.
On the lush green southern parts of the terrain, Sven Väth’s label Cocoon will return for the full weekend with its forward thinking underground concept, uniting techno and house fans from all over the globe. Next door, Jamie Jones will host his Paradise-party with full focus on the funkier side of house and techno.
For everyone that likes it harder, Thunderdome will again prove that hardcore truly never dies. The notorious concept will be taking over a full island on the northern festival side for two full days this summer. Furthermore, Urban outlet Vunzige Deuntjes will expand its hosting across the whole weekend, on its own private R&B and Hip-Hop sanctuary.
Kris Kross Amsterdam will be back joining forces with Crazy Town to showcase their signature blend of house and R&B and Milkshake will be given a cart blanche to go all out for two days with its extravagant performances and colourful dancers.
Musical diversity has always been key to Mysteryland. This year, the festival promises to break down the barriers between music genres even further.
