Smash Mouth, Coolio, Lisa Loeb, Naughty By Nature to Headline Inaugural 90sFest in Brooklyn
Nineties nostalgia is reaching a new inflection period, from Netflix's recent announcement to produce Full House sequel series Fuller House to the revival of the digital pet Tamagotchi (as an app) to the reunions of Jodeci and Blur.
And now, it's getting its own festival. On Sept. 12, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn's outdoor 50 Kent, the inaugural 90sFest will feature nine hours of performances and 90s-themed experiences (from 1 to 10 p.m. ET) with a lineup that includes Coolio, Lisa Loeb, Naughty By Nature, Smash Mouth, Tonic, the surviving members of Blind Melon and New York cover band Saved by the 90s with the Bayside Tigers. Bio Dome star and former MTV VJ Pauly Shore will host.
Tickets for 90sFest go on sale today (June 17) at www.90sFest.com at 12 p.m. (noon) ET, and will range from $60-85 for general admission, and $100-150 for VIP. Other planned activities include giveaways from Seinfeld-inspired Instagram personality F*ckJerry, a 90s-themed bedroom hosted by social media star Betches, a Nintendo Mario Kart tournament and an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the largest "Macarena" dance ever. Teases producer Marc Weinstein of Leuven Media, "now that Pepsi has teased Crystal Pepsi may be coming back , we may be able to offer Crystal Pepsi-based cocktails to our guests in VIP as well."
90s Fest is produced by Leuven Media and Prime Social Group in partnership with Founders Entertainment (Governors Ball).
