Mysteryland, the world’s longest-running electronic music festival and part of the SFX Entertainment, Inc. (NASDAQ:SFXE) portfolio of global electronic music events along with their exclusive mobile partner, T-Mobile (NYSE:TMUS) , the Un-carrierTM, today announced that they will unleash the first-ever live stream from the upcoming second edition of Mysteryland USA, held Memorial Day Weekend in Bethel Woods, New York at the site of the original Woodstock festival of 1969. The broadcast marks the first time in its 22-year history that Mysteryland has been streamed live.

T-Mobile is the exclusive mobile partner to SFX in the USA and a Charter Partner of SFX’s recently launched Beatport free music streaming service, and T-Mobile customers attending Mysteryland USA will receive special perks at the festival, including “fast-track” entry at the festival gates and exclusive access to a VIP deck with premium views of the Main Stage, charging station lockers, and more. In addition to the streamed performances, the Un-leashed by T-Mobile live stream will offer viewers an exclusive look at the creative culture and arts programming at Mysteryland – just one of many unique elements that set Mysteryland apart from other electronic music festivals in the world.

The live broadcast of Mysteryland USA will be hosted on Beatport Live, the new live streaming platform from Beatport, the online home of electronic music culture. With over a decade of experience selling music downloads, Beatport in March of this year launched a free music streaming service on the web and via mobile app where fans can listen to unlimited tracks and mixes, browse and save event listings, discover new music, and catch up on the latest news via Beatport Buzz. The recently-unveiled Beatport Live platform provides a video streaming experience where fans can watch live and recorded performances by DJs at festivals and other venues large and small, broadcast in high-quality audio and HD video, along with aggregated social activity from Twitter and Instagram, and the ability to subscribe to updates about new streams.

Beatport Live is a part of T-Mobile’s #MusicFreedom program, meaning that T-Mobile postpaid Simple ChoiceTM customers can stream all the music they want on the app on T-Mobile’s nationwide network and never have it count against their high speed data buckets.

“Giving fans around the world a taste of all the creativity and innovation that goes into staging and design, artist performances, and cultural events at Mysteryland USA via live stream is very exciting for us,” said Greg Consiglio, President and COO of SFX Entertainment. “Working with T-Mobile and using the power of our brand-new Beatport Live streaming platform, we can now deliver that experience to fans on their mobile device, virtually anywhere.”

Tune in to beginning at 6:00 PM (EDT) on Saturday, May 23 and Sunday, May 24 to watch Mysteryland USA on Beatport Live, UnleashedTM by T-Mobile.
