Some of the lineup for 90sFEST! has been released, and it’s pretty dope. Headlining will be the group that brought everyone classic tracks “Waterfalls” and “Creep” as well as a self-titled album released this year — TLC. And they’ll be accompanied by other familiar artists from that bygone decade. The nostalgia-fueled music fest makes its Columbus comeback in August, setting up at Columbus Commons.
“We received a ton of positive feedback from 90sFEST in 2016, including coverage on the Today Show and articles in outlets like the New York Times,” said Marc Weinstein, an original founder of the brand, in a press release. “With backing from unparalleled talents like TLC, we are ready to grow into new cities while building a fan-based brand in places like Columbus.”
90sFest And Partners started the fest in Brooklyn, NY in 2015. Not simply a musical event, 90sFEST! brings back the fashion and culture of the 90s, creating a “totally immersive, time-traveling experience.” For their second year in Columbus, they’ll partner with Prime Social Group, and bring Grammy award-winning Blackstreet and DJ Suga Ray, who’ll perform all night. C+C Music Factory (Gonna Make You Sweat) and 17th Floor, a “Hip-Rock and R&B cover band” will take the stage as well.
General Admission tickets are currently on sale for $25, VIP for $55; but the prices will go up once more of the lineup is announced.
It’ll run from 4 to 11 p.m. on Saturday, August 12, accompanied by food, beverage and merchandise vendors.
