Presented by Brandmeyer Fritz Festivals and concert production company Mammoth Entertainment, the inaugural event is scheduled for the Kansas Speedway in Kansas City, Kan., Aug. 5-6. The lineup also includes Kid Cudi, D12, Girl Talk, Primus, Flogging Molly, Jack’s Mannequin, Arctic Monkeys, Fitz & The Tantrums and Tinie Tempah. Expect more acts to be announced, including national performers and international DJs.
Although organizers announced Eminem headlining April, 5 and Muse topping the Aug. 6 bill, so far there’s been no word on the rest of the daily lineups, leaving fans wondering if Detroit hip-hop act D12 might work up something special with the Real Slim Shady.
Festival organizers say they expect 100,000 people to attend Kanrocksas and that free onsite parking and camping will be included with the purchase of every general admission ticket. There will be more than 1,000 acres of onsite camping available on a first come, first served basis.
But more importantly, your Kanrockas ticket comes with no service charges attached. How’s that for a deal?
Speaking of tickets, a pre-sale runs April 26-29 with Kanrocksas e-mail subscribers getting first dibs via an e-mail code to be distributed April 26 at 10 a.m. local time. Beginning April 30 you can purchase a two-day pass for $179. For more information, visit Kanrocksas.com.
