A just-announced pop concert with a nostalgia-heavy line-up promises to fulfil the dreams of many Kiwi children of the '90s and early 2000s. 

So Pop 2020 is headlined by the recently re-formed Pussycat Dolls, alongside a host of artists that would have been on heavy rotation at countless millennial's school discos. 

British dance-pop group Steps will take to the stage for their first-ever New Zealand show, with US singer Jesse McCartney and UK songstress Sophie Ellis-Bextor also in tow. 

Californian five-piece Smash Mouth, who's 1999 song 'All Star' has recently resurfaced in a raft of memes, will also be making their way to Aotearoa for So Pop. 

Dutch trance-pop project Alice DJ will help ensure all the cornerstones of the '90s pop movement are covered, playing hits like 'Better Off Alone'. 

Rounding out the trip down musical memory lane is Irish diva Samantha Mumba, US electro-reggae outift Reel 2 Real, The Mad Stuntman and Danish artist Whigfield. 

So Pop 2020 will come to Auckland's Spark Arena on May 2 next year, before moving to Horncastle Arena in Christchurch on May 3. 

Tickets go on sale Monday December 9.
