Founded in 1993, Mysteryland is now the world’s longest-running electronic music festival. Mysteryland held its first festival in the US just 2 years ago on the same grounds the historic 1969 Woodstock Festival was held. Regardless of its short lineage, the event has managed to compete with the likes of HARD Summer and Tomorrow World. Now today Mysteryland has announced their 2016 lineup.
The exciting lineup brandishes Bassnectar, Skrillex, and ODESZA as headliners as well as supporting acts such as The Chainsmokers, GRiZ, Zeds Dead, and Keys N Krates. Also worthy of a mention, the announce of Young Thug is an unexpected surprise, seeing as the festival is primarily geared toward an electronic audience.

Bassnectar Announces 2 Day Colorado Bass Center Camping Event With Lineup Feat. Flux Pavilion, Porter Robinson, Flyings Lotus & MorePosted in Uncategorized by nick | Tags: 2 Day, AlunaGeorge, Basscenter, Bassnectar, Camping, Colorado, Festival, Flux Pavilion, Flyings Lotus, Lineup, Lupe Fiasco, Porter Robinson
After much speculation and lots of hope Bassnectar has finally answered all fans wishes with his first ever camping festival, taking place in none other than Colorado, his national home base. After years of epic back to back nights at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheater, he is now taking his band of freaks and bassheads to Dicks Sporting Goods Field, the same venue Phish has taken over for the past few years with great success.
The festival will be taking place on July 29th and July 30th and is sure to be an event no one should miss out on.
On top of the event being headlined by the man himself, the lineup has also been revealed to feature Flux Pavilion, Wu-Tang Clan, Flying Lotus, Porter Robinson, Lupe Fiasco, AlunaGeorge, Minnesota, G Jones, Dabin and Thriftworks.
We are sure he's bound to close out the festival both nights and most likely have a range of surprises up his sleeves.
Pre-sales have sold out.
Public on sale is this Friday (1/15/16/).
Bassnectar is a man that needs no introduction. Known for bringing one of the most epic live audio and visual experiences to his live sets, Bassnectar has played just about every notable festival and club across the globe such as the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater, where he has effortlessly sold out multiple dates for years. Earlier this year though, Lorin encountered a contentious dispute with the venue after they imposed lower decibel levels. The producer made sure to voice his frustration via twitter, making it clear he would never return to Red Rocks after the noise reductions and even going as far to say that, "Other than ambient music or rock, the venue is a bust sadly." He also sent out a mysterious tweet regarding a possible solution to the problem, stating:
"There will be no Red Rocks shows of any decent volume in 2016. They are gonna lower their DB level even more. We have other plans for CO ;)"
Now we have a even more exciting information about what exactly he was talking about. Bassnectar's website accidentally published an article that has news of his first ever multi-day festival, and a camping festival at that. An article that was set to go live at a later date covered a new Bassnectar chocolate bar. In the article it mentions the fact that 5 winners will be chosen to win VIP tickets to 2016's Bass Center. But it also says it will include "camping," making us believe Bassnectar has created his very own festival.
"To make it even more fun, we have a special surprise for 5 lucky chocolate lovers. Hidden inside 5 of these bars are Golden Tickets, each offering free weekend admission to next year’s ‘Bass Center 2016’ (2 full weekend VIP passes, plus camping) …more info to follow on that!"
He has thrown a handful of Bass Center events in the past, but none that have included camping. Does this mean that the petition started last year, which asked for a 3 day camping festival in Colorado, has finally been answered? We'll be sure to keep you updated! We have to admit that things are pointing in that direction, Lorin himself didn't even shy away from the mistake, see his exciting tweet below.
