Mysteryland USA Publishes Official Statement Regarding Recent Cancellation
As predicted by the Dancing Astronaut Mysteryland USA source that disclosed the festival’s cancellation prior to the event organizer’s release of an official statement confirming the unexpected closure, Mysteryland published a Facebook post notifying ticket holders that the Woodstock grounds hosted event would indeed not be returning this season. In accordance with the anonymous statement given by the festival insider, the Mysteryland spearheads failed to reveal the cause behind the festival’s demise, citing ambiguous “unforeseen circumstances” as those culpable for the cancellation. Many have speculated that the event’s lineup, a crossover between electronic dance music and various other types of genres, cultivated Coachella style, led the brand to fall short in its ticket sales, generating funds that proved insufficient to support the festival’s 2017 costs.
Mysteryland USA appears unlikely to sound off on the specific behind the scenes issues preventing the return of the festival to the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, but will be readily processing returns to ticket holders. As noted by the statement, “Full refunds will be issued automatically to the bank account used to pay for the order within the next 3-5 business days,” leaving pass purchasers a sizeable sum by which to acquire their next festival ticket to an event that hopefully won’t meet so dire a fate as Mysteryland’s.
