I walked into the massive Floriadeterrein for my first Mysteryland experience around 3pm on Saturday, August 29 (I wasn’t in attendance on Sunday, although it should be worth noting 2015 was the first year the event went “weekender”) and, for better or worse, was immediately struck by its immense scale and production. Over my year living in Holland, most of my festival experiences have come by way of NDSM or boutique-style festivals in the form of Buiten Westen, Open Air, and Dekmantel. Mysteryland was different, not only for its scale, but for its musical diversity (everything from House and Techno to Hard Style, ... Read more
