90s nostalgia toronto

Some people in Toronto got upset after they couldn't get drinks at 90s nostalgia concert

On Saturday, Vaughan played host to bands like Aqua, Vengaboys, S Club, and Right Said Fred as part of the 90s Nostalgia Wayback Dance Party.

While the music was a bangin throwback to a gentler time, the organization of the festival left some partygoers feeling like it sucked to be them.

With lines (and not the good 90s versions) overrunning the grounds, many attendees were waiting hours to purchase alcohol and access the washrooms.

Most of the dedicated booths selling alcohol sold out before the festival had hit its peak.

“I feel like a twelve-year-old planned this,” said Nicole. “No one knows where the line is. This is so poorly done.”

The dissatisfaction leaked online, with people complaining about their tickets, which had gone for upwards of $70.

“This is very disorganized,” said Bruce, who had waited in line for an hour. “I thought I was going somewhere where I could actually buy a drink and see a concert. It's a little pricey, for sure.”

90s Nostalgia Wayback Dance Party didn't respond to a request for comment.
