Read the official announcement below.
Dear Block Nation!
We have some huge news to share with you!
When we were planning out 2012 and realized we would not be going on a North American Tour, we started looking for just the right event to add to our schedule instead. Then, the stars aligned. We were approached with the idea to be involved in a one-of-a-kind pop music festival that was shaping up in Hersheypark, PA. THIS was the event we had been searching for!
We know many of you were hoping for a Blockstock, but nooo…..This is MUCH! BIGGER!!!!!! More artists! More events! More fun! More chances to party and hang with us in the ways that you always love to, and in new ways that were never before possible! It’s not just OUR festival, but it’s going to be YOUR festival! This sure-to-be legendary event is going to go down in the history books, and we are thrilled and honored to be a part of it!
So it is with GREAT excitement that we announce the first ever….(drumroll please)….
Summer Mixtape Festival
August 17-18, 2012
at Hersheypark Stadium – Hershey, PA
We’ve checked out your feedback, combed your Twitter and Facebook feeds, and studied our notes from the Town Halls and NKOTB.com to find out what you think makes for the most relaxing, stress free, and totally amazing concert experience:
- the only NKOTB North American show IN 2012!
- NKOTB ON NIGHT ONE! NKOTBSB taking the stage together to close Night Two!
- Party with us after the first show with special guess DJ Pauly D!
- A tent to kick back, sit down, enjoy a glass a wine and get a massage
- A designated area to check your bags and stuff while you’re at the show
- And much, MUCH more!
Summer Mixtape Festival will allow you to get up close and personal with us by giving you access to the front of the stage with a VIP package (look out for a Block Nation Presale for this). As always (you know us!), we will have plenty of tricks up our sleeves and special events and surprises. There’s going to be limited space for parties and VIP access so make sure you get your ticket ASAP and we’ll keep you posted! VIP tickets will also get you guaranteed access to anything we add to the weekend’s schedule. And don’t worry, while we’re all at Hershey together for the weekend, we will be planning NKOTB-only fan events which we’ll announce as soon as we dream them up – we can’t wait to share them with you!
We are so excited to share the stage with some of our dearest friends and artists we love and respect at what will be an AMAZING two days in the beautiful Pennsylvania countryside. We hope to see you there for what we know will be a weekend to remember.
