Backlash over Mysteryland ‘noise’; businesses fared well

The music that was pumped out until 2 a.m. at the Mysteryland event at Bethel Woods was a bit louder than some neighbors would have liked.

Alan Scott, CEO of the Sullivan County Industrial Development Agency, congratulated town officials and specifically the Bethel planning board for “an extremely successful event, and one that was “run like clockwork.”

Brian Tampke, the project manager for Mysteryland said, “It took a long time for us to bring the event to the United States and to Bethel Woods. It means a lot to us to be here. What you’re doing right now is as important to us as it is to you guys. We want to take everything you guys say, digest it, and do everything in our ability to operate in a fashion that keeps everybody happy.”

There is a rumor circulating that Mysteryland has a contract with Bethel Woods to hold the event again on Memorial Day Weekend for two more years. Tamke, however, said analysis of the event would have to be completed before that decision is made.
