Smorgasburg and Edible Options at Mysteryland USA 2014
Bethel Woods, New York -- Smorgasburg has been hailed "The Woodstock of Eating" by The New York Times, so it's only fitting they'll be featured at the inaugural Mysteryland USA, taking place at the hollowed grounds of the 1969 Woodstock Festival.
The weekly Brooklyn-based food market (located in both Williamsburg and Brooklyn Bridge Park), offers over 100 vendors during the spring and summer season, and will bring many of their local staples up to the Bethel Woods Center For The Arts during Mysteryland USA.
From dumplings to gluten-free ice cream, festivalgoers should look out for such vendors as Alchemy Creamery, Brooklyn Wok Shop, Chickpea & Olive, Home Frite, Landhaus, Dan and John's Wings, Anthi's, and Jack's Chedbred, among others. Since Mysteryland is a 21+ festival, attendees can also enjoy the craft/local beer tent at Smorgasburg's Food Fest within the festival.
Outside of Smorgasburg, hungry festivalgoers can enjoy such vendors as Bella Aroma Pizza, Hungry Hungry Hippies, Luigi's, Peace Love & Ice Cream, Smokehouse, Strawberry Fields, and Vegetarian Osais. Rekorderlig, renown hard cider brand from Sweden, will bring its Strawberry-Lime, Pear, and Wild Berries cider flavors to the festival, despite not usually being sold in the United States.
While these food options have our stomachs grumbling, the main draw of Mysteryland USA is, of course, the music! Artists include Nicky Romero, Showtek, Nervo Fedde Le Grand, Kaskade, Moby, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, and Dillon Francis. Smorgasburg won't be the only festival-within-a-festival either - Sunday School is set to host a Mini-Fest of its own.
