Meerdere festivals in één
Mysteryland creëert tal van sferen voor het publiek, zodat bezoekers zich binnen één dag op meerdere festivals wanen. Zo belooft Q Dance  wederom een spectaculaire show te worden met een programma van formaat. Het viertal Visionquest geeft acte de présence op een eigen stage. Mysteryland is dit jaar één van de dertien festivals in de wereld waar deze vierkoppige act in zijn volledigheid te zien is. Dubstep organisatie RESIST heeft grote namen als Caspa, Zeds Dead en Joker, maar ook ‘Harlem Shuffle’ trap artiest Baauer weten te strikken. Dirty Dutch host dit jaar de Big Top tent die vorig jaar van opening tot sluit bomvol stond met onder andere de Amerikaan Flosstradamus.Verder presenteert Mysteryland Shermanology, Deniz Koyu, Yellow Claw en Tiga.

Bijzonder talent
Naast vele grote namen biedt Mysteryland uiteraard ook weer podium aan een breed scala veelbelovend en bijzonder talent. De openingsceremonie wordt verzorgd door Musclefarm. Het creatieve Amsterdamse collectief Knuckle Duster geeft het festival kleur met bijzondere acts als Skip & Die live, Palmbomen en Valentijn. Internationale kruisbestuivingen vinden plaats op de Totem stage waar culturen elkaar ontmoeten, met muziek van warme live deephouse, jazz, hip-hop, soul latin, booty, carribean, tot een reis door Chileense geluiden zoals cumbia, folk, Chileense pop en poëzie. En dat is nog maar het puntje van de muzikale ijsberg!

Toonaangevend
“In de afgelopen twintig jaar is Mysteryland uitgegroeid tot één van de meest toonaangevende elektronische festivals. Inmiddels wordt het festival ook in Chili gevierd,” vertelt Irfan van Ewijk, de ‘I’ uit ID&T. “Dit is mede te danken aan het feit dat er naast de muzikale programmering nog zoveel meer te doen, te zien en te beleven is. Zo is er de kleinste bioscoop ter wereld bij Nostalgia, een Mysteryland kunstroute en het kunstenaarscollectief Shit Art, dat een aantal toiletgroepen tot hoogwaardige kunstobjecten omtovert. Daarnaast strijkt de Bollywood Bar op Mysteryland neer met onder andere dans van Ish en ‘spoken word’ van Poetry Circle Nowhere.  Mysteryland staat bekend om de indrukwekkende podia waar honderden mensen een jaar lang aan werken. We kijken daarom ook uit naar een knallend jubileumfeest!’’

This year’s Cream Ibiza tracklist perfectly reflects the ethos of Above & Beyond, taking in their biggest tried and tested tunes, fan favourites and exclusive new tracks – all guaranteed main room Ibiza material. Alongside hot tracks from the likes of Cosmic Gate, Dirty South, Kyau & Albert and Depeche Mode (Eric Prydz Remix) Cream Ibiza also features exclusive new mixes of Above & Beyond’s Stealing Time (from the critically acclaimed debut album Tri-State) and On My Way To Heaven, plus brand new remixes of Tranquillity Base (aka Above & Beyond)  Razorfish by Jerome Isma-Ae and of the Above & Beyond and Andy Moor classic “Air For Life” by Norin & Rad.

Mark Brown even has had his own record label for a couple years called CR2 records. He has released tracks from some huge artists, like Steve Angello, Eric Prydz, and Dirty South.

MYNC caught the attention of Calvin Harris who then decided to sign the guys to his label to release this song after hearing it being played at the Miami Winter Music Conference to great affect. They will be joining a talented roster that includes the likes of the aforementioned Calvin Harris, Nicky Romero, Michael Woods, and Bart B More.

“Stadium” has the ability to be a huge track this summer that can be played in any stadium. It has a great electro sound with a sick build up that gives way to a fist-pumpers paradise.
