For millions, the ’90s was the best era of music. Today, many bands that made it big from that era still bring some nostalgia to packed venues. If you’re in the mood to go back, Australia’s bringing a brand new festival to you.

Pop ‘Til You Drop

The So Pop festival combines some of your favorite ’90s acts for a five-date trek across the continent. Headlining the event are Aqua and The Vengaboys. Aqua burst onto the scene with their 1997 debut album Aquarium. The 11 track album, which includes the number one hits “Barbie Girl” and “Doctor Jones,” sold 14 million albums worldwide. In 2011, the band unveiled their first album in 11 years with Megalomania.

The Vengaboys are best known for their hits “We Like To Party,” “Boom, Boom, Boom, Boom,” and “We’re Going to Ibiza.” In 2014, the group dropped the remix album Xmas Party Album, which includes Christmas remixes of their greatest hits.

 Hey, I Know This Song

Aqua and The Vengaboys aren’t the only ones set to rock on this tour. Blue (“All Rise”), Eiffel 65 (“Blue (Da Ba Dee)“, Mr. President (“Coco Jamboo”), Lou Bega (“Mambo No. 5”), 2 Unlimited (“Get Ready for This”), and The Outhere Brothers (“Boom Boom Boom”) will also keep the party moving. Altogether, these acts have sold over 120 million albums worldwide.

This event will be hosted by Cheez TV co-hosts Ryan Lappin and Jade Gatt. Beginning in 1995, Cheez TV was Australia’s top children’s program. The two hosts exited the series at the end of 2004. In 2016, they started a Facebook page to showcase some old school clips of the program.

Don’t Miss The Action

This event concludes with a performance inside Brisbane’s Eatons Hill Outdoors on February 9th. This show will be for folks ages 18 and over.
