On the evening of Friday, May 23, Mysteryland USA attendees who are camping on the Holy Ground will be treated to a special pre-party hosted by Dutch phenom Nicky Romero's Protocol Recordings label, inviting some of his most talented residents including Tritonal, Don Diablo, John Dahlbäck, Vicetone and Michael Calfan to kick-start the festival.

"I’m really proud of having these five very talented artists of the Protocol family playing at our Protocol stage at Mysteryland USA. Each of them had one or more successful releases on my imprint so they play a huge part in the succes of the label," Nicky explains. "I’m very happy we can support the guys in this way as well. Come check us out!"

Nicky will be performing on the Main Stage on Saturday, May 24, infecting Mysteryland USA with his seductive blend of progressive house laced with electro and acid synths. He continues to pay it forward with his Protocol brand that is quickly establishing itself as a leading dance music platform - a go-to outlet for forward-thinking dance music. Don't miss the Protocol family, as they take over Mysteryland USA this May!

In anticipation of Mysteryland's US debut, Nicky has supplied a Countdown Mini-mix for your listening pleasure. Check it out below!
