We are a colorful collaboration of party animals, artists, DJs and creatives. Together we are Mysteryland; the leading electronic music festival in The Netherlands. Year after year, we reunite to celebrate our friendship and love for music. In between sparkling ponds, rivers and forestry hills of the Floriade terrain near Amsterdam, we welcome more than 100.000 fellow festival friends from over 100 nationalities.
Musical diversity is deeply rooted in our DNA. More than 300 artists perform on our 17 stages, covering all genres within the spectrum of electronic music: from House, Big Room, Bass, Techno, Deep-House, Trance, Trap and Minimal to Hardstyle, Hardcore, RnB and Hip Hop. Our handcrafted stages range from outdoor dance floors to massive tents filled with LED screens, laser shows, and the world’s most advanced sound systems. On Saturday and Sunday night, we close Mysteryland with a bang during the renowned end-shows on our 3 biggest areas: The Main Stage, Q-dance stage, and our Big Top tent. Expect lots of fireworks, confetti and goosebumps!
Next to the dance floors, the various paths through forests and grassy fields will guide you to hidden chill out spaces, art installations, food courts and unexpected encounters with like-minded travelers. Our Healing Garden on the Southern festival terrain offers treatments for all spiritual seekers among us, from chi gung to cacao ceremonies, to massages, yoga and meditation sessions. On the central lake right on the foot of our gigantic pyramid, you can take a boat trip to absorb the soothing scenery from the waterside. To sum it up: forget time and let yourself flow through the tantalizing and open-minded energy that is present all over Mysteryland.
The most dedicated party animals stay with us from Friday until Monday: on the Mysteryland camping grounds! Here, we fully break free from everyday pressure and social expectations and live the days and nights just as they come. The campsite is fully equipped with everyday facilities and everything you need to quench your hunger and thirst. There’s a market street where you can pimp your festival outfit, style your hair or get a tattoo to eternalize the summer of a lifetime. On the camping plaza, morning yoga awaits the early birds and late night silent disco prolongs the nights for everyone that just can’t get enough.
At Mysteryland, we have over 25 years of experience in organizing dance events. In fact, we are the longest running electronic music festival in the world. We have learned how to optimise event facilities and logistics. This is why customer service, visitor health and safety are key to us when it comes to festival production. All you have to do is enjoy the ride, we’ll take care of the rest…
Come and embark with us on the journey of a lifetime!
The world of Mysteryland is rooted between the beautiful fields, forests and lakes of the Floriade Terrain in Haarlemmermeer, The Netherlands. Haarlemmermeer is located just 25km South-West of Amsterdam and 5km from International Airport Schiphol.
Mysteryland is a festival for adults (18+). Although we’d love to have each and every one of you, we can’t make any exceptions, not even if your birthday is the day after the festival. If your 18th birthday happens to be on the day of the festival, you’re more than welcome to celebrate this special day with us.
Everyone attending Mysteryland will be asked to show a valid (and original government-issued photo) ID at the entrance, which means: an ID-card, passport, or driver’s license. We do not accept photocopies or birth certificates.
The full line up will be released at the beginning of 2019, keep an eye on our socials and website!
Who is your spirit animal? A unicorn, a holy goat? We encourage you to unleash all the wild spirits within and reincarnate as another version of yourself at Mysteryland. Experiment with the colourful and the kinky, the wet and the wild; add a strip of latex or lace, some feathers or leather. On our Camping Grounds, there will be a special boutique where you can pimp your outfits. You can bring your own party animal outfit or spice up your look with fresh finds from our hippie market. Whatever you hide inside, a unicorn or a sparkle pony, nothing is too wild. The only limitation is your imagination. We have but one rule when it comes to the dress code for our festival grounds: don’t come as you are, come as who you’d like to be.

Wood-oven pizzas, on-the-spot grilled burgers, Indian, Mexican, Vietnamese, German and Dutch cuisine, midnight snacks, healthy wraps, sweet crepes, English breakfast, French toast, ice cream, cocktails, smoothies, gluten free, low carb, vegan, or lactose-free… We have it all. Our 70 food trucks and open-air kitchens serve fresh, honest and delicious dishes from all the corners of the world. If you need any info, please don’t hesitate to contact us: email@example.com.

Can somebody else use my ticket?
The tickets are not bound by the name mentioned on the ticket. Do note that a Weekend ticket can only be used by one person on both Saturday and Sunday.
Can’t come anymore?
Can’t come to the festival anymore, but already purchased your ticket? Unfortunately, tickets are non-refundable. However, you can go and try to resell it yourself (for example on Ticketswap), as tickets aren’t bound by name. Be aware that with a Weekend ticket, the same person should be using it on both Saturday and Sunday.
How does a Weekend ticket work?
A weekend ticket cannot be split up into 2 single day tickets. This means that the person using it on Saturday should be the same as the one using it on Sunday. The ticket is scanned on both days, and only valid in combination with a wristband.
You can resell your Weekend ticket, but only as 1 ticket for the 2 festivaldays, not as separate tickets.
Lockers on the campsite
There are lockers available on both the festival grounds and campsite. However, we advise you to leave your most valuable items at home or have them with you at all times.
It’s possible to purchase a locker in our online ticketshop, once the tickets go on sale.

We all sleep in tents at Mysteryland, you’re not allowed to bring your caravans or campervans to the camping grounds.
Back to basics, camping as if it was meant to be: there’s no electricity available near your tent. That’s why we ask you to leave your computers and big sound sets at home. At the showers, there are sockets available for hair straighteners, blowdryers and shavers.

To make your camping journey as comfortable as possible, you’re very invited to bring along – next to your tents – foldable chairs, pillows, blankets, inflatables, as well as cool-boxes.
Please note that the camping entrance gates are 90cm wide, so you can’t bring carts wider than that.
You’re also allowed to bring a small, foldable umbrella, as long as it doesn’t have a pointy top. Selfie sticks are also allowed as long as they’re foldable and no longer than 1 meter.
We try to keep our festival neighbours happy, this is why high volumes and block parties aren’t allowed on our campsite. But, of course, you may bring small battery powered speakers with a maximal volume of 80 dB(A). And, for the real party heads: you can keep dancing in our silent disco, all night long!
Other than our festival terrain, which is perfectly accessible for disabled guests, our campsite is a pristine piece of grassy land. Therefore, we discourage disabled festival goers to stay on the campsite. Don’t worry; there are more than enough nice hotels and bungalows near our festival terrain to host your own slumber party!
How to get there
Shuttle buses – Hoofddorp station
On Saturday and Sunday, there will be a non-stop shuttle bus service to the festival grounds and back, departing from Hoofddorp station.
You need a separate shuttle bus ticket on both days.
The buses to both the camping grounds and the festival terrain start driving half an hour before the opening (10h30 on Friday, 10h30 on Saturday, 11h30 on Sunday). The last buses take off when all the visitors have left the festival terrain.
Joining us from another city and looking for a comfortable way to get to Haarlemmermeer?
EVENT TRAVEL offers more than 150 pick-up points throughout the Netherlands, meaning that there’s always a location near your house! You can buy a bus ticket (roundtrip) or a combination ticket (festival entrance + roundtrip) at WWW.EVENTTRAVEL.NL.
Organizing your own bus trip?
In case you’re organizing a touring car yourself, make sure to register in order to reserve a dedicated parking spot right near the festival entrance.
You can register your bus at HTTP://
Within 3 days before the event, all information will be sent to you via e-mail.
Bike (or scooter)
Staying or living nearby? In that case, cycling is most certainly the best and quickest option. Follow the cycling traffic instructions to the festival (please use Stelling, Vijfhuizen as your destination), and park your bicycle in the designated areas at the entrance Noord (Stelling, Vijfhuizen). Bikes parked in the Haarlemmermeerse Bos, near entrance Zuid will be removed.
Live too far away to come by bike? From Hoofddorp Station you can borrow an OV-bike which you can rent for only €3,35. Once the night is over, and you’re on your way back from the festival – just simply return it at the station. Super convenient, but make sure you are on time; there’s only a limited number of bikes available!
Car & Parking
There’s enough parking space around the festival terrain. Use Stelling, Vijfhuizen as GPS address. Once nearby, simply follow the ‘Parking’ signs to the festival grounds.
We don’t recommend you to come by car, as departure times after the festival can take up to 2 hours!
Kiss & Ride
If somebody is bringing you to the festival, please use Stelling, Vijfhuizen as your GPS destination, and follow the signs to ‘Kiss & Ride’.
After the festival, follow the Noord exit to reach the ‘Kiss & Ride’ designated pick-up area.
We don’t recommend you to come to Mysteryland by taxi. As a limited amount of taxis are available, it’s hard to get one. Plus, your driver won’t be able to pick you up at the same location as where he dropped you off.
If you come by taxi, please let your driver use “Spieringweg, Hoofddorp” as the destination and follow the “Taxi”-signs towards the festival.
From the airport – Schiphol
Our home in Haarlemmermeer is very close to both international airport Schiphol and Dutch capital Amsterdam, making it very easily reachable by public transport. From Schiphol, travel to Hoofddorp station by train (4 min ride). From there, you can take the shuttle bus to either the camping or festival grounds. You can purchase your shuttle bus ticket in our online ticketshop once the ticket sales have started.
Green festival soul
Mysteryland is one of the most sustainable festivals in the world with a number of awards and certificates under our belt:
- EE Music Award for the highest reduction in energy consumption of all European festivals (2015)
- Industry Green Certification ** (2012)
- Industry Green Certification * (2013 & 2014)
- A Greener Festival Award (2014)
And that’s not for nothing… We separate all the waste and recycle all the plastic at the festival, serve free water to our visitors, the meat we serve is organic, and we follow the ‘leave no trace principle’ on our festival grounds.
Our delicious Dutch tap water belongs to all of us and therefore we are very happy to offer it to all of our Wanderers, for free. At Mysteryland, you will find the water bars everywhere and you can fill your cup or bottle up for free. At the water bars, you can also purchase our famous limited edition water bags.
Our water is not only very tasty, but this way we also save a lot of plastic. Cheers!
Together with the non-profit organisation of 10,000 HOURS, we invite our visitors to the annual Mysteryland volunteer days. Since 2010, more than 30,000 hours of voluntary work have been donated and that total continues to grow. Together with other festivals, DJ’s and volunteers, the foundation supports different voluntary projects aimed at the most vulnerable people in our society. For more information, visit www.10000HOURS.nl.
By joining forces and working with the Foundation 10,000 HOURS, we want to encourage dance lovers to do more volunteer work within our community.
Because together we can make a difference!
We operate with a strict energy policy at Mysteryland. All crew members, suppliers and technicians operate on an energy saving level, to make sure we build and run Mysteryland as efficiently as possible.
Leave no trace
We feel honoured to have the opportunity to return to the lush and green surroundings of Haarlemmermeer year after year. This is why we leave no trace on our festival grounds, meaning that we collect every single cup and cigarette bud after the festival, leaving the terrain almost untouched.
Health and safety
At the festival, our heroes at the first aid are there to help you at any time of the day (and night). Are you not feeling well? Then head over there. Don’t worry, they won’t call your mother if you have been misbehaving, and they certainly won’t tell the police. Their biggest concern is that you are doing well, so don’t hesitate to ask for help.
All festivals in the Netherlands operate under a Zero tolerance policy. This means that no soft- and hard drugs are allowed.

Your safety is extremely important to us. Therefore, everything and everyone is searched at the entrance (including luggage). Do you have something with you that is on our ‘blacklist’? Then we’ll throw it away. Pay attention! In some cases, access to the site of the festival may be denied.
