Sincere thanks from our entire event staff to those who supported the festival in 2011 and with advance tickets this year.

Kansas Speedway + MMF, LLC.

The festival was set to take place un 28 and 29, and was supposed to feature Tiesto, fun., Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Pretty Lights, Passion Pit, MGMT, Kendrick Lamar, The Avett Brothers, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros and many more. The Kanrocksas Festival originally took place in 2011, but the festival’s organizers skipped out on a 2012 event due to conflicts with construction at the venue.

Kanrocksas is the third major festival to cancel in the last couple of weeks. The inaugural JamBase Live and Moonrise Festivals also called it quits last week.
