MLUSA Officially Confirms Festival Cancellation Due To Unforeseen Circumstances
RIP Mysteryland 2017. Well, the rumors are true. Multiple EDM sources were foretelling the cancellation. It’s sad to say that MLUSA is officially canceled. Along with EDCNY, we’ve lost another great festival this year. We do not know why but it is pretty upsetting.
We’ve noticed a blackout in MLUSA Twitter since the announcement of the lineup. Headlining was Oakland Rapper G-Eazy, Die Antwoord, and LCD Soundsystem. The news is devastating. Especially for the returning attendees. Some fans are taking to twitter about it.
MLUSA Officially Confirms Festival Cancellation
Multiple sources speculated two reasons why the festival canceled. Some included ticket revenue and public relations. So many people enjoyed Mysteryland. From the experience, camping and being around the memorable Bethel Woods, what went wrong this time around? You can see the official statement yourself below.
The festival was pulled due to “unforeseen circumstances.” Fans were disappointed in the lineup. Compared to 2016, the festival veered away from true electronic dance music. With a dynamic lineup, which included Skrillex, Bassnectar, Odesza and The Chainsmokers, it’s hard to replace. With such big names in EDM, this year didn’t bring it to the table. It’s sad because Mysteryland has been around since 1993, one of the longest running festivals in history.
A few hours before Mysteryland confirmed the cancellation, Dancing Astronaut spoke out. They quoted the following.
They quoted the following:
“In response to enduring speculation and rumor mongering, Dancing Astronaut has reached out to a source from inside the festival, who–speaking on the condition of anonymity–confirmed that Mysteryland has been cancelled for 2017. The festival is to make an official announcement sometime this weekend, but is unlikely to reveal the cause of cancellation.”
It’s sad to see another festival go on the East Coast. How do you feel about MLUSA being canceled? Tell us what you think!
