Mysteryland US to return in 2016 on new date
Mysteryland USA has made its mark on America as a multi-day affair, traditionally touching down each Memorial Day Weekend alongside other festival contenders such as Movement and EDC New York. While the US iteration has plans to return next year, MDW will no longer be spent in Bethel Woods.
Following a public hearing surrounding noise complaints from three Bethel property owners, the town’s Planning Board approved the former Woodstock site for 2016’s annual festival. In part so as not to coincide with EDC New York, Mysteryland USA has instead opted for June 10-12 as 2016’s official dates.
Last year’s edition faced serious competition from four major rivals throughout the country, making it difficult for Mysteryland USA to garner as many attendees as it had initially hoped for. Its strategic decision to take place in June is expected to increase attendance, though many will still be forced to make the tough choice between Mysteryland and Bonnaroo.
