Festival for dance, art and theatre

One of the highlights of Amsterdam’s dance festival agenda, Mysteryland strikes down with a broad line-up of creative events alongside the annual explosion of varied electronic musical styles ranging from cutting-edge dubstep, hip-hop and disco to top international names in house, techno and electro. The festival programme also traditionally includes exhibitions by small-scale artistic collectives, theatre-makers, spoken-word artists and what is claimed to be the ‘smallest cinema of the world’, aiming to send its visitors on a journey of discovery.

Tradition and innovation

Having run for more than two decades, Mysteryland is one of the world’s oldest dance festivals. However, it doesn’t rest on its laurels, constantly on the look-out for innovation and new inspiration. The festival has also begun travelling the world, making stops in the US and in Peru.

Glamping and more

Mysteryland might be a city that never sleeps, but for those that do need a rest there is the ‘Holy Ground Camping, which not only offers space to pitch your humble tent but also veritable glamping options, such as tipis for groups of ten and safari tents with real beds. Check the Mysteryland website for more information.
