The Sets You Can't Miss At Mysteryland

When you're going to a festival, it's important to show up prepared with a schedule for the weekend. There are so many artists to see and a preplanned schedule is the best way to make sure you don't miss a thing. Mysteryland and EDC New York are this weekend so it's time to get ready! If you chose to go to EDC, then read this post from the other day about who you should see and where. If you're going to Mysteryland then keep reading because I'm about to tell you about the sets you really don't want to miss!

Saturday

1:00-2:00
Who:
AMTRAC
Where:
Main Stage

Mysteryland is probably going to be different than any other festival you go to this season so you should start out with an artist that's different as well. AMTRAC's disco-inspired tech house sets the perfect vibe for an atmosphere like Mysteryland's.

2:00-3:00
Who: Oliver Heldens
Where:
Main Stage

The fact that this kid is only 19 years old is reason enough to check him out, but his music also just happens to be unreal. Heldens' tracks can be described as funky to say the least and is definitely someone you need to see.

3:00-4:30
Who: Dubfire
Where: Sunday School: The Big Top

Something really cool about Mysteryland is the Sunday School Mini Fest that they have going on. If you've been to the Sunday School tent at Electric Zoo then you know it's all about the best techno there is. Dubfire's futuristic tech beats are just the way to introduce you to the world of Sunday School for the weekend.

4:30-5:00
Who: Sultan and Ned Shepard
Where: Main Stage

This set actually starts at 4:00, but I suggest finishing Dubfire's set before heading back to the Main Stage. Then it's time to mix it up with some progressive house with this Canadian DJ Duo.

5:00-6:30

Taking a break at a festival is really important because you are literally going all day long. Take this time to check out the art installations, fill up on some food and get some rest. There's still a while to go, pace yourselves.

6:30-8:00
Who: Fedde Le Grand
Where: Main Stage

Now that you're well-rested, you now have the energy to get down to some Fedde Le Grand's house beats. There's a reason he's stayed in the top 30 of DJ Mag's list for the past decade...he always kills it.

8:00-9:30
Who: Visionquest: Seth Troxler, Ryan Crosson, Shaun Reeves, Lee Curtis
Where: Sunday School: Spiegeltent

This actually starts at 6:30 and goes all the way until 1:00 AM, but there's so many other people to see on Saturday. I would stay at this for as long as I could though because this is gonna be sick. Visionquest is the label that these guys started and the four of them playing together will be something amazing. They're basically hosting their own party in the middle of Mysteryland filed with deep, soulful techno beats.

9:30-10:30
Who: Showtek
Where: Main Stage

If you're willing to leave the Visionquest party, Showtek is where you'll probably want to be. They're a Bad Kids favorite so you know the Kids will be at the Main Stage to see how they do. This set is until 11, but the next artists I'm going to tell you about are worth leaving Showtek a little early. 

10:30-12:00 
Who: Pan Pot
Where: Sunday School: The Big Top

So in September I got the pleasure to see this techno duo at Pacha and holy shit were they sick! You will feel their thumping, pounding beats throughout your entire body and you will love every second of it. 

12:00-12:30
Who: Nicky Romero
Where: Main Stage

Another Bad Kids fave, this year's #7 DJ will definitely keep your energy up as the first night of Mysteryland starts to near it's end. This set starts at 11, but Pan Pot is absolutely worth it!

12:30-2:00 
Who: 
Steve Aoki
Where: Main Stage

Turn down for what!? It may be getting late, but if you're not ready for the party to end for the night then you might wanna go see Steve Aoki. If you want to end the night with cake in your face, then this is where you want to be.

 

Sunday

When you finally are able to crawl out of your tent Sunday morning, give yourself some more time to explore the festival. This event is so different than anything that has ever come to New York and you should make sure to take it all in as much as you can. 

2:00-3:00
Who: Sleepy and Boo
Where: Sunday School: The Big Top

Now that you're pretty much recovered and awake from the day before, it's time to find out what Sunday's music choices have to offer. This local NYC husband and wife duo will get your feet moving to their underground sounds in the Big Top.

3:15-4:30
Who: The Chainsmokers
Where: The Main Stage

This up and coming NYC duo is very close to our hearts here at Bad Kids. They played our third EDM brunch and now their smash hit "Selfie" is making them a household name in the EDM scene.

4:30-7:00

Unless there's someone you want to see during this time, you really should take another break. There's a ton of food options and artistic performances. You can also head back over to the camp site if you're choosing to camp out this weekend.  

7:00-8:30
Who: Justin Martin
Where: Sunday School: Spiegeltent

This California-based DJ is all I hear about on Twitter from those I follow on the West Coast. His funky beats are sure to get you back into the groove after taking a break.

8:30-10:00
Who: Dillon Francis
Where: Main Stage

You Kids all know what Dillon Francis is all about. Taco Bell, cats and moombahton: Francis always keeps his crowd entertained.

10:30-12:00
Who: Joseph Capriati
Where: Sunday School: The Big Top

Maybe techno isn't really your thing, but Capriati will absolutely be the exception to that. It's hard not to fall in love with his style and I guarantee you will not regret checking this set out. 

12:00-1:00
Who: Chris Liebing
Where: Sunday School: The Big Top

Do not move once Capriati is done because Liebing is immediately taking over The Big Top tent with his dark techno vibes. Chris Liebing is not for the faint hearted and if you think you can handle it, I definitely suggest staying for his whole set. It actually ends at 1:30 and I would probably stay until the very end.

1:00-2:00
Who: Kaskade
Where: Main Stage

So this set actually begins at 12:30 and if Chris Liebing is too much for you to handle. Kaskade is playing a "special" closing set to end the Mysteryland. I don't know what they mean by special, but knowing Kaskade and his past productions, it'll be something amazing for sure.

 

Mysteryland USA will be a historic weekend for EDM to say the least. Between the famous venue that hosted Woodstock '69, the fact that it's the first of it's kind in the United States and the amazing lineup, you Kids will be telling your kids about this one. Have an amazing and safe weekend, whether you're hitting up EDC or Mysteryland, but most importantly....stay bad.
