With the news that the Netherlands has issued the cancellation of all multiple days events until the first of September, Mysteryland is facing another postponement. Scheduled from August 27th till the 29th, Mysteryland has now been postponed once again for 2022.
The Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte made an announcement about festivals that damaged many events, including Mysteryland. Even though the government had previously given the green light, the pandemic in the country took an unexpected turn just after it opened again without restrictions.
All ticket holders will be contacted next week with more information.
The festival made the following statement on their socials:
“Dear loved ones,
It is with great sadness that we need to announce that Mysteryland will not take place this summer.
During the last weeks, the situation in The Netherlands took an unexpected turn. While giving us a green light before, the Dutch government has now issued an official directive requiring the cancelation of all multi-day events with camping scheduled until September 1st, 2021.
We understand that this isn’t the news you were hoping for, and it breaks our heart to share it with you. During the last months our whole team has been pushing the limit, working day and night to create what would’ve been the most magical weekend of the year, while also complying with the changing regulations set by the Dutch government. With only a month to go till a sold out Mysteryland would’ve taken place, all stages and shows were ready for our festival adventure, but unfortunately it seems it wasn’t meant to be this year…
We thank everyone for all the patience, love, and support we’ve received over the last year. It’s your heartfelt messages that keep us going during these difficult times. The moments we share mean the world to us, and every single one of you contributes to the completeness of our journey!
As we always strive to give you the best experience, even during this exceptional situation, please give us some time to explore all possible options. Everyone who’s in possession of a Ticket, Camping, and /or Hotel Package for Mysteryland 2021 will get the option to keep their ticket for 2022 or request a refund.
Ticketholders will be contacted via email in the next week.
The time will come that we will dance again and when we do, we will celebrate life together like never before!”
