The lineup for MixFest 2015 has been announced, and joining us on the stage at the DCR Hatch Memorial Shell this year is Newton, MA native, Rachel Platten.

2015 has been a year of rising to the top for Rachel, Fight Song has taken off like a rocket and with it, her career.

Rachel sat down a month ago with Karson, Kennedy, and Salt at the Mix Cares for Kids Radiothon at Boston Children’s Hospital to talk about her plans for playing MixFest.

The discussion quickly went from Rachel’s excitement about playing her hometown to Andy Grammer, who is also on the bill for this year’s MixFest show.

Rachel and Andy have been touring together in recent months, and stories of their prank wars have dotted the music press.

So in a way, Andy is kind of Rachel’s good-natured nemesis when it comes to pranks.

“You guys, let’s prank him,” Rachel said to Karson and Kennedy.

And with that, the plotting began. The four went through a bunch of ideas: pretend backstage fights, serving Andy fake divorce papers, to hundreds of ping pong balls, plastic eggs, toilet paper

What did Rachel, Karson, Kennedy, and Salt decide on? Find out in the video player above.
