WILLIAMSBURG — Get ready for an invasion of crop tops, fanny packs and flannel in Williamsburg this weekend.

More than 3,000 people are expected at 50 Kent Ave. on Saturday for 90s Fest, hosted by Pauly Shore and featuring performances by Coolio, Lisa Loeb, Salt-N-Pepa and Smash Mouth, among others.

The festival, which is run by the team behind Governors Ball, runs from 1 p.m. to 10 p.m. along the Williamsburg waterfront and will be packed with '90s nostalgia.

In addition to concerts by '90s hitmakers, a DJ will spin tracks popular during the decade, with sponsors like Sunny D serving up drinks and Nickelodeon sending in costumed "Rugrats" characters.

The festival will also have a Ninento 64 playing station, a '90s market selling flannels and bucket hats, and neon manicures with "The Simpsons" and "Teenage Ninja Mutant Turtles" nail art.

At some point, guests will be corralled into a festival-wide rendition of the "Macarena" as part of an attempt to break the world record for the largest group dance during the song.

Both general admission and VIP tickets are still available online, at $75 and $150.

If that's not enough, Brooklyn Bowl will be hosting an after party with '90s music performed live for $15 admission.

Here's the full line-up for the day:

Saved by the 90s with the Bayside Tigers

Coolio

Lisa Loeb

Naughty by Nature

Blind Melon

Smash Mouth
