Amsterdam’s long-standing electronic music festival, Mysteryland, has officially been given the green light to go ahead this August.
Dutch government officials have said that whilst there’s still a small chance the situation will change, for now, Mysteryland will take place.
This comes just one week after Unum Festival in Albania officially became the first European music festival to take place without any Covid restrictions.
More significantly, the announcement comes just two weeks since Exit Festival announced their approval from the Serbian authorities to go ahead in July, which will make Exit the first major European music festival to go ahead since the pandemic began.
Mysteryland organisers had this to say:
‘’During the last months, we’ve been in close contact with our national and local government. With the current roadmap for large events in place, all lights are green for the end of August. This means that Mysteryland will be taking place this summer!Mysteryland
We cannot express to you how excited we are to be able to unite again and would like to thank everyone who’s chosen to keep or buy their tickets in these uncertain times. Your love and trust keep us going and we cannot wait to repay the favour in August!’’.
Mysteryland expects that there will be few or no extra Covid measures during the festival. This means that social distancing and mask-wearing might not be mandatory, although there is a possibility that proof of a negative test or proof of vaccination will be required.
International travel and tickets…
Whilst it’s looking promising at this stage that large parts of Europe will be able to travel back & forth freely to the Netherlands, it’s best to check in real-time based on your location. Note that the Dutch government isn’t making any travel guarantees!
At the time of writing, only Sunday passes were available, with Friday & Saturday completely sold out.
