A lot of people wonder why ‘90s nostalgia is such a powerful force, but when you consider the many ways in which 2017 straight-up sucks, the appeal to go back to a simpler time becomes clear. Will Smith must be aware of that, as even he must long for the days when he was the guy from The Fresh Prince and not the guy from the Academy Award-winning film Suicide Squad, which is probably why he’s getting back together with his old buddy DJ Jazzy Jeff and playing a few festival shows this summer.

Smith and Jazzy Jeff will be headlining Livewire Festival in the UK on August 27, and they’ll be stopping by Croatia’s MTV Summerblast on August 25 and 26. This comes from Consequence Of Sound, which doesn’t say which specific days the duo will be at Summerblast, but it should be a pretty killer weekend either way for any dedicated ‘90s kids willing to make the trek from Croatia to the UK. Consequence Of Sound also says these shows will be the pair’s “first full-fledged concert since 2005,” but they have reunited a handful of times since then. Smith even teased last year that he and DJ Jazzy Jeff were planning on touring together at some point, but that hasn’t happened yet.
