FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Mysteryland USA 2017 Unveils Genre-Bending Lineup featuring headliners G-Eazy (Friday), LCD Soundsystem (Saturday), Major Lazer (Sunday) + many others!
Bethel Woods, NY - Celebrating its fourth annual stateside residency and 25th year in existence, the world’s longest-running electronic music festival, Mysteryland, will open a portal to an extraordinary world this June 9th - 12th, 2017, inviting fans to enter the gates of Bethel Woods, New York. Embracing its roots as home to the legendary Woodstock festival, the masterful creators behind Mysteryland USA have completely reimagined the musical landscape of Bethel Woods for this year’s edition, assembling an all-star cast of emerging artists alongside a master class of talent.
Captivating the Catskill Mountains this summer will be the smooth flows of G-Eazy, closing out Friday and the first night of Mysteryland USA. Also joining the roster of headliners are Brooklyn’s own LCD Soundsystem performing on Saturday night amid rumors of a forthcoming studio album and following an epic comeback tour in 2016, plus the always-electrifying Major Lazer, who will undoubtedly leave revelers wanting more during the grand finale on Sunday night. Setting the stage for an insanely dynamic weekend, the headliners offer up a taste of what to expect as Mysteryland USA expands this year’s curation beyond the realm of traditional dance music to include a more diverse selection of music genres, satisfying festival aficionados across the board.
Supporting headliner acts include the sultry horn swagger of Colorado’s Big Gigantic juxtaposed against South Africa’s explosive, rave-rap orchestrators of dance Die Antwoord, plus the imaginative sounds of prodigal producer Porter Robinson colliding across the grounds with relentless beats delivered by kingpin of trap music, RL Grime. Recently dubbed “hip hop’s most intense truth tellers” by Rolling Stone, Killer Mike and El-P complete the full list of 2017 headliners, dominating the stage together as fierce rap duo Run The Jewels.
Mysteryland USA turned to the concrete jungle of New York to further complement the incredible lineup, bringing illuminating live-act Bob Moses, electro-chill producer Jai Wolf and Founder of Fool’s Gold Records, turntablist and driving force in the electronic-rap movement A-Trak to the fields. Rounding out the list of top names include Eats Everything, Baauer, Louis The Child, Cashmere Cat, futuristic beat architect Clams Casino, Duke Dumont, Robert Delong, Elohim, Skream, Hot Creations label frontman and 2017 Mysteryland stage host Jamie Jones, Patrick Topping, Ekali, tastemaking queen of bass Anna Lunoe, acid house DJ/producer Boys Noize, Ghastly, and Snails.
