The popular Dutch festival Mysteryland, came to the United States in 2014 full of dreams. But like most immigrants to the US in recent years, Mysteryland USA has found an unwelcoming reception, and has called off the 2017 edition.
Location: Bethel, New York, USA
Year Started: 2014
Reason For Cancellation: The same complex reason I gave for quitting my job as a dishwasher — “unforeseen circumstances”.
Chance of a Return: Foreign festivals trying to crack into the US market have a dismal track record. Our call is a not-at-all enigmatic 1 out of 10.
Here’s the official statement:
Due to unforeseen circumstances, Mysteryland USA will no longer take place in 2017.
Since 2014, we have strived to produce the best possible experience for our festival attendees, and are truly humbled by all of the love and support that you, the artists, the beautiful venue of Bethel Woods Center for the Arts and the Town of Bethel have shown us as we celebrated life through music, culture and art.
