Kanrocksas made its debut in the summer of 2011 and took a hiatus in 2012 to allow the festival's home, the Kansas Speedway-- located in the burgeoning Village West area of Kansas City--undergo a significant facelift including major infield renovations and the opening of Hollywood Casino.
The fest introduced Midwest music lovers and fans from around the globe to a top-tier music festival experience spurred by headliners Eminem and Muse, along with national and local musicians representing virtually every genre. As the first major music event to take place at Kansas Speedway, festival organizers succeeded in creating a one-of-a-kind experience and fans can expect nothing less in 2013.
