Bethel Woods, New York -- If Mysteryland's US debut this Memorial Day Weekend wasn't enough to get you excited, Made Event, the company behind Electric Zoo, is upping the ante with its Sunday School Mini-Fest.
From its start in Miami in 2006, Sunday School has grown from a 12-hour nonstop party, showcasing the most beloved and respected underground artists, to multi-day curated events at festivals like Electric Zoo. Each event has built upon the success of the last; the final Sunday School Miami event in 2011, the "Lost Weekend," featured over 40 artists in an epic 36-hour marathon. Sunday School is not just known for being an amazing party, but also for its special old school vibes and focus on alternative, underground talent.
Though it now operates on a much larger scale, Sunday School maintains its original vision of spotlighting the best in underground house and techno. Mysteryland's Sunday School will include 3 stages – The Big Top, Vinyl Only, and Spiegeltent – each with a unique stage design and concept.
The Big Top tent will feature techno acts including Dubfire, Joris Voorn, Chris Liebing, and Joseph Capriati, while the Vinyl-Only stage will present just that - an intimate club environment, rich with analog sounds - with Lee Foss, Soul Clap, Victor Calderone, Josh Wink, and more. Finally, the wood and mirrored Spiegeltent will host a Visionquest showcase on Saturday, featuring the four founding members (Seth Troxler, Ryan Crosson, Shaun Reeves, and Lee Curtiss), while Sunday will host the likes of Blond:ish, Scuba, Heidi, and Thugfucker, among others. Scroll down to check out the full roster of artists.
Mysteryland is the world's longest-running electronic music festival, originating in the Netherlands in 1993 and branching out with its first international edition in Chile in 2011. This Memorial Day Weekend, the festival will make its US debut at the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, the site of the historic 1969 Woodstock. Tickets for Mysteryland USA, which include the Sunday School Mini-Fest, are available now and start at $129 for single-day passes and $199 for weekend passes.
