A reformed TLC are set to be the stars of the second Mixtape Festival, due to take place on Friday July 26 and Saturday July 27, at Hersheypark Stadium, Pennsylvania, Pennlive.com reports. The band’s two remaining members (Lisa ‘Left-Eye’ Lopes died in a car crash in 2002), Rozonda ‘Chili’ Thomas and Tionne ‘T-Boz’ Watzins will play the second day of the festival. Late last year, it was reported that they were considering using hologram technology to represent Lopes on stage with them, though it has not been confirmed that they will be employing the technology at the Mixtape Festival.
Also performing on the Saturday will be New Kids On The Block, Jonas Brothers, Boyz II Men, Benji Madden, Emblem 3 and MKTO. The Friday boasts Train, the Script, OneRepublic, Rev. Run and DJ Ruckus, Gavin DeGraw, Serena Ryder and Hanson. Tickets for the festival go on sale on May 10, proceed at $51.70 for a two day pass and a starting price of around $35 for a single day pass.The festival organisers are also selling VIP packages, including meet & greets with some of the artists playing at the event, as well as a ‘Rock n Jock’ dodgeball game and an exclusive VIP party, featuring Benji Madden and Rev Run. A gold VIP package will set you back $1200, whilst the silver package is $650.
The reunion of TLC has sparked rumors that Chili and T-Boz may embark on their own tour. The band scored a string of hit in their original incarnation in the 1990s, including ‘Waterfalls’ and ‘No Scrubs.’
