Paula Abdul to headline Mixtape Festival
Dream will also perform for the first time since 2001
Paula Abdul will make a return to the stage. The former American Idol judge is set to headline this summer’s Mixtape Festival at Hersheypark Stadium in Hershey, Pennsylvania on Saturday, August 6. She’ll be joined by fellow nostalgia-inducing performers New Kids on the Block, Boyz II Men, 98 Degrees, O-Town, Ryan Cabrera, and Dream. (This’ll be the girl group’s first performance since 2001.)
“It’s not a summer in Hershey without Mixtape Festival,” said Geoff Gordon, Live Nation Philadelphia regional president, in a statement. “And we worked hard so our fourth year continues in the traditions of an incredible line-up and amazing fan experiences set at a world-class entertainment complex.”
New Kids On the Block have performed at the fest before and said, “Mixtape has become an annual summer tradition for us, and for so many pop music fans. We can’t wait to be back on the Hersheypark stage for the fourth year. We’ve got a great show in store.”
Tickets go on sale April 29 at 10 a.m. on Ticketmaster.
