The Avett Brothers, Tiesto, Kendrick Lamar to play Kanrocksas


Kanrocksas, the two-day music festival near Kansas City, announced The Avett Brothers, Tiesto and Kendrick Lamar as its first three confirmed acts.

It doesn’t say whether those are the headliners, but if they are, it’s a bit of a step down from Eminem, Muse and The Black Keys. On the other hand, maybe they’re trying not to spend so much. (Talent is usually the largest part of a festival’s budget.)

The festival returns to Kansas Speedway on July 28 and 29. The festival said more acts will be announced “in the coming months.”

You can buy discounted tickets now at – $150 for a 2-day ticket and $25 for camping. The sale goes through the end of the month.
