Mysteryland USA 2015 Lineup Is Out Of Control Featuring Porter Robinson, Diplo, Kygo, Dillon Francis, Madeon and 100 more!Posted in Bangin, Chill, News by nick | Tags: Dillon Francis, Diplo, Kygo, Lineup, Madeon, Mysteryland, Porter Robinson
The incredible folks at ID&T who are responsible for both iconic and globally renown festivals TomorrowLand and TomorrowWorld expanded their first live event Mysteryland to the US last year and it was quite a success. The festival took over the same location as the historic American music festival Woodstock 69' which provided the perfect backdrop to the new festival. The festival will be returning over the weekend of May 23rd – 24th this year.
Just minutes ago festival organizers unleashed the lineup for the 2015 edition of the festival, and man did they step it up for year two.
Headliners include Diplo, Kygo, Dillon Francis, Porter Robinson, Madeon, Robin Schulz, GRiZ, Gramatik, The Martinez Brothers, Netsky and so many others!
This year’s festival also has an exceptionally well-curated lineup featuring a massive spread of genres.
With the likes of tropical wonderkid Kygo headlining the main stage it’s evident that the “Tropical House” explosion is not slowing down anytime soon. Rising stars Bakermat and Klingande are sure to help cement this wave of popularity as well.
Another group making an impact are all of the Electro-Funk/Soul acts like heavyweights Griz and Gramatik holding it down with Manic Focus which are all live acts that are sure to not disappoint.
Most impressive seems to be that American festivals such as Mysteryland are starting to curate lineups that include pioneers in the deep house and tech house genres. For tech house we have the much talked about Ibiza legends The Martinez Brothers headlining the Flying Circus stage on Sunday along with Martin Buttrich. You know deep house is alive and well at Mysteryland when you have artists like UK’s Maya Jane Coles and Matthew Dear curating their own stage.
Although mainstream electronic music has been scaled back, Mysteryland still secured some all time favorites such as Porter Robinson, Diplo, Dillon Francis and Bro Safari. Overall a very well rounded line up that is sure to please.

Mysterious producer KSHMR has still not let his identity surface, more than a year after turning out tunes like "No Heroes" with Firebeatz, "Burn" and others. But this has not prevented the artist from making quite a name for himself leading us to two of his biggest tracks to date. Today, we get his collaboration alongside powerhouse Dillon Francis, "Clouds."
The high energy anthem goes back to Dillon's earlier Moombahton roots in terms of style, but brings a new, 2015, powerful edge that is ready to ignite the largest of festival crowds. The song also features singing from Becky G, a budding pop star who brings a polished, yet youthful twist to the song with her vocals. We are excited to bring you guys the premiere on this one and even an exclusive download for our readers. KSHMR also has a collaboration with Tiesto set to release next month, so watch out for the masked producer as 2015 is set to be his true breakout year. Enjoy!
