Along with all of those pop tunes, MixTape Fest will have exclusive fan events, interactive exhibits, food trucks, celebrity and special guest appearances and a spa oasis. The fest has partnered with event promoter Shecky’s Media to host “Shecky’s Girls Night Out on Tour” with makeovers, manicures and shopping.
Once the music wraps up for the night, then it’s time for after parties attended and hosted by MixTape talent. DJ Pauly D will be in charge of the turntables at Friday’s after party.
