New Festival To Take Place on Woodstock Grounds

Posted 24 Aug 2013 in Miscellaneous, Music, News, Performance

The original Woodstock took place in 1969, and attracted 400,000 music fans from around the country. The lineup was packed with all of the biggest names in rock and roll: The Grateful Dead, CCR, Janis Joplin, The Who, Jefferson Aeroplane, and of course, Jimi Hendrix. Though Woodstock was not the first music festival in existence, it played a colossal role in establishing what a modern day music festival looks like.


In 2014, the same grounds that once held Woodstock will be hosting a new festival. Mysteryland, the longest running EDM festival in the world, will be moving to the 600 acre farm in upstate New York for Memorial Day weekend.

Mysteryland has been previously held in Peru and Chile and achieved high levels of success in those countries. This year will be the first time the event has been held in the United States.

Popular electronic musicians Zeds Dead, Steve Aoki, Flosstradamus, and Porter Robinson have already confirmed their intention to play the upcoming festival; many more acts are suspected to jump on board before the event begins.

Unlike the original Woodstock, Mysterland will not be free. Unfortunately, the event limited its attendance to only 60,000 and have already sold all of the tickets. However, finding secondhand tickets for sale online is still possible.
