Summer MixTape Fest 2012, the major new music festival set to launch this summer, celebrating the mainstream music scene from across the U.S., is aiming to please with the announcement of single day passes. Fans can purchase single-day tickets. And to the delight of pop culture and boy band fanatics everywhere, the festival has confirmed they will present host the 98 Degrees reunion on Saturday, August 18th! This is their first and ONLY scheduled appearance together.
After rumors of a 98 Degrees reunion flooded the internet months ago, fans everywhere waited with baited breathe for a confirmation. The rumors were quickly shot down to many a fan’s dismay. But now, the festival that is bringing audiences a weekend of pop culture mash-up is thrilled to confirm the reunion show of 98 Degrees, the first time the band will perform together in over 10 years!
"We are so excited to reunite and be a part of the Summer MixTape Festival. It's been over 10 years since we last performed together and there's nothing that makes us more excited than being on stage as a group. This will be a chance for us to see old fans and meet new ones all while singing the songs we know people love to hear. We couldn't think of a better place and time to do this," said Nick Lachey of 98 Degrees.
Summer MixTape Fest is also thrilled to announce the addition of three new acts to the festival stages. Headliners New Kids on the Block, Kelly Clarkson, The Fray and LL Cool J will also be joined by r&b/pop/rock artist The Ready Set, alternative rock band Carolina Liar, and none other than viral video sensation Carly Rae Jepsen, who is currently sitting at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 Charts for her smash hit “Call Me Maybe.” Fans can expect more additions to the list of acts gracing the stages of the two day action packed festival.
Featuring two stages over two days, Summer MixTape Fest 2012 will present platinum-selling marquee acts, icons and pop phenoms from the Pop Music genre for a weekend long action-packed festival set in the sweetest place on earth, the world famous Hershey Park. Festival organizers are also thrilled to announce that after their sold out arena tour in 2011 the New Kids on the Block and the Backstreet Boys will reunite onstage as NKOTBSB for their only North American performance together in 2012. This is currently their last scheduled joint appearance and can very well be the last chance to see this record setting hit filled super group perform together.
In a scene full of indie music festivals, Summer MixTape Fest aims to fill the gap in the festival circuit for mainstream music lovers, offering them a festival experience of their own. In doing so, Summer MixTape Fest will showcase popular acts including Kelly Clarkson, The Fray, LL Cool J, New Kids on the Block and highlight the ONLY North American appearance of NKOTBSB in 2012. Aiming to give fans and pop-culture lovers the biggest weekend dance party, Summer MixTape Fest will offer attendees the ULTIMATE and most luxurious festival experience.
This one of a kind music festival will feature exclusive fan events, interactive exhibits, food trucks, celebrity & special guest appearances and even a spa oasis. Festival fans will be able to experience all the action from the multiple stages and performance areas in a way that is accessible, inclusive, and designed as a shared celebration of all things mainstream. Fans can keep the fun going late into the night at after parties attended and hosted by Summer MixTape Festival Talent. DJ Pauly D will man the turntables and light up the after party on Night 1. Attendees can additionally take part in the VIP Luxury Experience offering many different perks and amenities throughout the festival. Check for all package and event details.
In an effort to further the festival goer experience, Summer MixTape has partnered with Shecky's to bring their “Girls Night Out” experience to Hershey Park Stadium. Shecky's Girls Night Out on Tour is the ultimate experience where girlfriends get together to discover, shop and score new products from emerging artisan designers while enjoying makeovers, manicures and other fun beauty services.
“It’s an honor for us to be a part of the inaugural year of Summer MixTape. To share the stage with such mega artists as Kelly Clarkson, LL Cool J and The Fray is really exciting. With the artist selection, and all of the amenities and accommodations offered, this festival is raising the bar to the next level,” say New Kids on the Block. “We couldn’t think of a better way to spend our weekend than with our amazing fans, and there couldn’t be a better setting than such a fun filled festival with such an amazing bill of artists.”
