[Edited to Add: Our #tweasing is over! We can now reveal that the closing DJ set at our closing party will be actor, musician, comedian, and TV host Nick Cannon! See below for more about Nick.]
This year, McDonald's, our partner of seven years, is pulling out all the stops. You thought last year was epic? (Well, OK, yes it was.) This year is going to be even epic-ER! Get ready for a show-stopping, heart-pounding, DANCE PARTY!
Once again, McDonald's is transforming an outdoor space to put on a concert, dance party and generally awesome opportunity to chill with friends new and old, eat, drink, and of course have plenty of fun! They are providing buses, so no worries: We’ll get you there and back again.
So how are we topping last year? Drum roll, please!
This year the party will feature three, THREE, sets!
First up, the legendary, iconic, record-breaking R&B group … Boyz II Men!
Boyz II Men have won a whopping nine American Music Awards, nine Soul Train Awards, three Billboard Awards, and a 2011 MOBO Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music. The trio holds the distinction of being the best-selling R&B group of all time, with an astounding 60 million albums sold. For Boyz II Men the hits just keep on coming—the group continues to craft new albums and bring their legendary act to stages across the world.
Up Next: DJ Spider
After this one-of-a-kind, personal appearance by Boyz II Men, the party continues with DJ Spider, an open-format DJ and producer, who is one of the most well known DJs in all of Hollywood, San Francisco, Chicago, New York and Las Vegas today. Spider will be spinning and keeping you on your feet!
And to close our the party...Actor, musician, comedian, TV host Nick Cannon!
