Note: Haddaway and Eiffel 65 no longer will able to attend the Festival.
The outdoor event will be taking into consideration safety protocols in providing as safe an experience as possible for attendees. There will be bars, merch booths and food trucks set-up as well!
We were so lucky to spot some of Saturday’s stars arriving, and our teen self is freaking out!
VENGABOYS– one of the most success Dutch groups of all time known for international smash hits “We Like to Party”, “Boom, Boom, Boom, Boom!!” Original members Kim Sasabone and Denise Post-Van Rijswijk are joined by Robin Pors and Donny Latupeirissa.
AQUA – In 1997 it was impossible to avoid the incredible cultural impact of satirical Pop Jam, “Barbie Girl” thanks to this Danish supergroup! Original members Lene Nystrøm, René Dif and Søren Rasted still are all together! Coincidentally today is the 25th anniversary of their hit single “Roses are Red“! Happy Anniversary!
WHIGFIELD – I was obsessed with the Track “Saturday Night” in 1994 where it achieved global success as a huge hit! “Another Day” and “Think of You” also achieved pop greatness throughout Europe. While Whigfield was born in Denmark, she was and still is based out of Italy.
JENNY BERGGREN OF ACE OF BASE – While Ace of Base has continued to tour in recent years in different incarnations and different members. it is Berggren‘s vocals which win our hearts on pinnacle Pop Classics like “Beautiful Life”, “All That She Wants” and “The Sign”! So thrilled the Swedish Chanteuse is gracing us with her presence.
About ten years ago, we were privileged to meet Ulf Ekberg and Jonas Berggren from the original Ace of Base lineup.
2 UNLIMITED – This Dutch Dance Act, fronted by Rapper Ray Slijngaard, to this day are heard widely, their high energetic bops like “Get Ready For This”, “Twilight Zone” and “No Limits” used as hype songs to get audiences pumped-up at sporting events. Even on his own, it is a treat to see Ray here!
SIMONE DENNY – Toronto-based Dance Act LOVE INC. were a staple on MuchMusic in the ’90s, especially their signature “You’re a Superstar“, but this Frontwoman has continued to enjoy success as a solo act. She is responsible for the iconic “All Things (Just Keep Getting Better)”, theme from QUEER EYE FOR THE STRAIGHT GUY.
Tickets are still available for the ‘90s NOSTALGIA TOUR. Details are here.

Attack of the Hollywood Clichés! is a one-off special featuring some of the most famous films in cinematic history along with a plethora of Hollywood A-Listers, Screenwriters, Academics and Critics as they guide us through the funny, weird and controversial clichés which appear on our cinema screens.
Posed in a classic crisp suit, Rob Lowe invites viewers to examine the Hollywood clichés filmmakers can’t help but use, time and time again. With the help of the experts, Attack of the Hollywood Clichés analyses the origins and evolutions of everything from ‘The Ticking Time Bomb’, to the ‘Meet-Cute’, and ‘Females Running in Stilettos’ – there’s also a ‘Wilhelm Scream’ montage for real movie buffs.
ATTACK OF THE HOLLYWOOD CLICHÉS arrives on Netflix September 28, 2021.
It’s a collision of Pop Royalty. Coldplay x BTSx Max Martin team together no new Track MY UNIVERSE from Coldplay‘s upcoming new Disc, MUSIC OF THE SPHERES, out October 15, 2021 via Warner Music Canada. The gorgeous Track combines Coldplay‘s atmospheric vibe with BTS’ current Pop sensibilities. Dave Meyers directs also the upcoming Clip.
The first season of the AppleTV+‘s The Morning Show took audiences on through what very closely mirrored the #MeToo movement, exposing how someone so loved by America, Mitch Kessler (Steve Carell) could be exposed of misconduct, its consequences, all packed with several unpredictable twists. The second season of The Morning Show is before us, once again relevantly mirroring our reality today.
In the first two episodes of Season 2, we meet our charismatic new Hosts of The Morning Show, Bradley (Reese Witherspoon) and Eric (Hasan Minhaj) hosting the 2019 New Year’s Eve celebration in Times Square. They even do a musical number. Audience members know exactly what is about to unfold, as a global pandemic is about to impact the world, but the characters are rather oblivious to these events. As well, there are some internal tensions as Eric is about to replace another disgraced News Reporter, leaving behind Bradley on The Morning Show, thereby taking a job she desperately wanted.
With the plummeting ratings for network UBA, plus Bradley not exactly winning over audience members like Alex Levy (Jennifer Aniston) had, Cory (Billy Crudup) is now stuck at an impasse. He needs a ratings boost as his job literally depends on it, and after their on-screen revelation, and Alex’s departure, we wonder if he can convince the only person (Alex) who can save his career to return to The Morning Show?
Somehow, by nothing short of a miracle, Cory manages to convince Alex to come back until a full-time replacement can be found for Eric. This is rather shocking for Bradley as she does not want to share the spotlight anymore with Alex, as she was promised to be the Anchor. She also was promised the coveted Evening News opportunity that was given to Eric. Through all the betrayal and tension, can The Morning Show be saved, or will there be more drama within UBA?
The second season of The Morning Show manages to balance well real world issues and stories, with pure binge-worthy entertainment. As well, the performances by the entire Ensemble, but namely Witherspoon and Aniston, are nothing short of sensational. We already have a feeling The Morning Show Season 2 is packed with explosive revelations and feuds.
THE MORNING SHOW Season 2 streams only on Apple TV+, new episodes arriving at 3 AM ET.
