The festival which focuses on music, culture & arts and sustainability, 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 also 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.
