Kelly Clarkson and the Wanted on the same bill? The only way that could be sweeter is if there were chocolate involved. And in terms of the 2012 Mixtape Festival, it is.

Clarkson and the U.K. heartthrobs will hit the stage with the Fray, DJ Pauly D, NKOTBSB (New Kids on the Block and the Backstreet Boys) and more at this year’s Mixtape Fest, which will be held at Hershey Park in Hershey, Pa., the chocolate capital.

The ‘American Idol‘ alum and the Fray, who are co-headlining on tour this summer, will rock out on Friday, Aug. 17 with New Kids on the Block and DJ Pauly D. The Wanted will headline the Saturday, Aug. 18 performances alongside the Dan Band, LL Cool J and NKOTBSB — the super group’s only North American performance this year following a European tour.

The New Kids are particularly thrilled to kick off the festival’s first year. “It’s an honor for us to be a part of the inaugural year of Mixtape,” the band said in a statement. “To share the stage with such mega-artists as Kelly Clarkson, LL Cool J and the Fray is really exciting… We couldn’t think of a better way to spend our weekend than with our amazing fans, and there couldn’t be a better setting than such a fun-filled festival with such an amazing bill of artists.”

Tickets for the Mixtape Festival go on sale April 27, but if you can’t wait til August, you can check out the Wanted on tonight’s episode of ‘The Voice,’ performing their new single ‘Chasing the Sun.’
