Coolio, Lisa Loeb and Smash Mouth will all appear at the first ever 90s Fest in New York later this summer.

The '90s nostalgia festival will take place in Williamsburg, Brooklyn on September 12 and will feature nine hours of live performances from artists of the era. Naughty By Nature and Tonic will also appear as will the surviving members of Blind Melon and New York cover band Saved By The '90s with the Bayside Tigers.

Former MTV presenter Pauly Shore will host the event, with tickets going on sale today (June 17). Other attractions at the festival include a '90s-themed bedroom, a Nintendo Mario Kart tournament and an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the largest Macarena dance ever.

Festival organiser Marc Weinstein has also teased that "we may be able to offer Crystal Pepsi-based cocktails to our guests in VIP as well."

Earlier this week Smash Mouth were booed off stage after frontman Steve Harwell swore at members of the audience and threatened them with violence after being pelted with bread during a festival appearance.

Harwell and his band were performing at the Taste of Fort Collins street festival in Colorado, USA. People attending the festival are given a loaf of bread upon entry and began throwing slices in the air during the Smash Mouth set.
