A firm fixture of the Mysteryland line up is the Q-Dance Stage, located on the Northern Festival Grounds, on the foot of the gigantic pyramid. Everyone that means anything in the world of big drops and emotional choruses will be present to play the lavishly designed Q-Dance Stage.
Headhunterz, Wildstylez, Frequencerz, Brennan Heart and Noisecontrollers are amongst the captains that will lead their warriors through the battlefields into Hardstyle-heaven.
Apart from the artist that will adorn the three biggest stages, Mysteryland teams up with underground brands for deep cuts. Sven Väths‘ label Cocoon and Jamie Jones‘ Paradise will return to the Southern part of the festival with two unique stages, bringing along Loco Dice, Green Velvet, ROD and Dubfire. In addition, Beatport will host its first ever stage tucked away in the forest where Berlin-outlet Stil vor Talent will showcase the deeper underground sounds.

Another gem of Dutch rave culture is hidden under the wielding fists of the Wizard. Originators Dr. Peacock, Gizmo, Promo, Korsakoff will make you understand the bliss of those Hardcore vibes at the Thunderdome Island that will be open on both days.
On the other side of the pond, Hip Hop heads and urban lovers can bounce to slick grooves and thick beats by Bizzey, Ronnie Flex & Deuxperience and Johnny 500 at the Vunzige Deuntjes stage. This stage will be open two days as well, so smooth operators can get down and dirty all weekend long.

For camping guests, the festival opens its doors early on Friday, August 24th (11h) and stays open until Monday, August 27th (12h).
Mysteryland is located in the close surroundings of Amsterdam, The Netherlands. For those who want to combine the festival with a city trip, Mysteryland offers hotel packages including transfers, personal service, lockers and late check out.
