Countdown to MixTape Festival

I know MixTape Festival was announced a few weeks ago…but it was announced 3 days before I left for Europe so I’m finally just able to sit down and digest the excitement. So MixTape will be my next Backstreet adventure and I have to wait a small eternity until August before the event gets here.

The ticket buying experience for MixTape was true chaos, as one would expect for any BSB event. I was initially anticipating buying a regular GA floor ticket but in true Backstreet style, about 50 minutes before the tickets went on sale it was announced BSB would be playing a baseball game with New Kids, offered only as part of the VIP package. So like any good irrational BSB fan, I bought a VIP ticket with complete disregard to cost and giving no real consideration to my budget. It boiled down to spending an extra $350 to see Nick in tight baseball pants. I fully expect it will be well worth the cost.

So once I found out I was going, I excitedly told my little bro.
Me- “I’m going to MixTape fest and ended up buying VIP tickets for over $500!”
Bro- “I thought tickets were $150?”
Me- “Yes, but I wanted to see the Backstreet Boys play baseball so I had to buy VIP.”
Bro- “Geez. What’s next? Are you going to spend $1,000 to watch AJ sleep? You’ll be all excited like: ‘Oooh look. He just rolled over!’
That comment made me chuckle, mostly because there’s a hint of truth to it.

Anyway, I’m super excited for this event. As they have been advertising it, it seems like it will be the only event in North American for 2012 by NKOTBSB (and possibly even BSB!). But because of that, I have a bunch of friends flying in from all over the place. It’s going to be a true cruise reunion and an epic weekend all around.

Anyone else going? Shoot me a message if you are!
