The ’90s NOSTALGIA TOUR is back in Vaughan once again this weekend after a brief hiatus last year! The three-day Music Festival set to take place in the parking lot of IMPROVE Canada, brings back some ’90s to early ‘2000s Pop Music legends, giving fans a rare opportunity to see them up close!
Musical Acts like Ludacris, Ja Rule, Ashanti, Aqua, Jenny from Ace of Base, Whigfield, Vengaboys, S Club Party and several more are set to take the stage, delighting their fans in this stopoff of their cross-Canada Tour which has had installments in St. Johns, Abbotsford, Winnipeg and more!
The three-day line-up includes:
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.
While we hoped to make it out for the amazing Saturday line-up, we were unable to make it out sadly. Rain however, could not hold us back from having some fun Sunday night. While Ja Rule’s last-minute cancellation left Ashanti having to re-configure her portion of the show to a full set, Toronto’s Kardinal Offishall was more than happy to extend his set a bit further to accommodate. Friends Choclair, Glenn Lewis (in fedora below) and Rascalz even joined him on-stage. Kardinal donned orange as a tribute to Canada’s Indigenous.
Ashanti, looking and sounding even better than she did 20 years ago, delivered a phenomenal set of her hits, braving the rain, and still was able to perform her collaborations with Ja Rule without him physically being there. She tells the audience she soon will be inducted on the Walk of Fame!
By the time Ludacris had hit the stage around 11:30 PM – yes the party went on late – the crowd already had been worked-up with the rain continuing to pour. The Rap legend delivered a spirited set spanning his catalog of hits and told the audience he almost didn’t make it past the border, but alas he delivered the goods as the evening’s main headliner!
More about the ‘90s NOSTALGIA TOURhere. Hoping this will be an annual tradition!
An amazing time attending as a VIP! Can’t wait till next year!
