After months of speculation, Mysteryland USA just released its 2015 Bethel Woods lineup, complete with some attention-grabbing headliners and definite love for its New York home.
This year, the May 22-25 festival returns to the former stomping grounds of legendary festival Woodstock with a distinguished cast in tow. The Main Stage on Saturday is headlined by Luke Steele’s theatrical collective Empire of the Sun, Porter Robinson‘s celebrated new live show and producer of the moment Kygo, while Sunday passes the baton to Mad Decent party-starters Diplo and Dillon Francis, plus Netsky‘s full-throttle live show. With a new album imminent, French wizard Madeon is Saturday’s special guest.
For the techno and house heads, Detroit-via-Texas enigma Matthew Dear has curated Saturday’s ‘Subversions’ lineup with Maya Jane Coles, Paco Osuna and more, while Sunday belongs to Adam Beyer‘s Drumcode family. The Boat returns in 2015 for a schedule of all things bass-heavy, featuring GRiZ, Gramatik, Bro Safari, TJR and more across the weekend. Meanwhile, for hard dance heads, Noisecontrollers and Frontliner will head up ‘The Sound of Q-dance’ crew on Saturday.
The lineup also includes a stage curated by Brooklyn tastemakers Verboten, with club regulars Lee Burridge and Damian Lazarus performing Saturday, and The Martinez Brothersand Martin Buttrich joining Audiofly for their special ‘Flying Circus’ showcase on Sunday. In another nod to NYC institutions, Webster Hall’s Sunday ‘Girls + Boys’ stage has Bakermatleading a buzzy cast that also includes Goldroom, Klingande and Bondax.
There’s a blanket over Friday’s Holy Ground Camping ‘Special Headliner,’ who will be announced at a later date. But with Bangon!NYC and the colorful vibes of Pineapple Paradise #BrunchBounce as part of the camp programming, we’re expecting someone just as vibrant to be thrown into the mix.
