TLC Set For ’90s Girl-Group Reunion At Mixtape Festival

Jonas Brothers, New Kids on the Block and Boyz II Men help fill the boy-band section of the roster for July 26-27 fest in Pennsylvania.

The second annual edition of the Mixtape Festival will touch down at Hersheypark Stadium in Hersey, Pennsylvania, on July 26-27 with a star-packed roster that includes New Kids on the Block, the Jonas Brothers and a the long-awaited reunion of TLC.

Among the other acts on the bill at the festival presented by VH1 are Train, the Script, OneRepublic, Hanson, and Run-DMC co-founder Rev Run & DJ Ruckus.

“We are so thrilled to bring back the Mixtape Festival to Hershey,” said Live Nation spokesperson Geoff Gordon in a statement. “There’s an incredible lineup and tons of interactive and fun activities, all while being set at a world-class amusement park — it’s really a pop music lovers dream.”

Among the most anticipated acts on the bill are 1990s hip-pop icons Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Rozanda “Chili” Thomas. The surviving members of mega-platinum trio TLC began sowing the seeds for their first extensive outing since the death of Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes
