Hearne: ‘The People Have Spoken,” Kanrocksas

Pennywise @ KROQ Red Bull Soundstage (4/5/2012)

Imagine Dragons

Turnabout is fair play…

After months of insisting otherwise, the powers that be at the music fest known as Kanrocksas have done an about face and  made single day tickets available to the two day fest on June 28th and 29th at the Kansas Speedway.

The $64 million question being why?

“I think all along they had it in the back of their minds,” says a source close to the fest. “But they wanted to maximize their two day tickets and not give any hint that there would be single day tickets.

“It’s been the plan all along, it was just a matter of when. So now the people who thought they might not be able to see Kanrocksas can curate their own festival experience.”

Single day tickets at $99 per are “limited,” organizers say.

And while the fest has yet to identify its “headliners,” Friday’s bill includes Fun, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Imagine Dragons and Saturday’s is highlighted by DJ Tiesto, MGMT and Passion Pit.

    • the dude says:

      The tonedeaf promoter has somewhat listened and is issuing a useless, limited ultimatum.
      My retort?
      PASS.

  4. Fresh says:

    “The $64 million question being why?”

    Because they only have one and a half headliners and they aren’t selling any tickets.

  5. the dude says:

    A little over a month away and they still have not named their ‘headliners’.
    That does not sound good.

  6. Brother Sunday says:

    THREE of those bands has any airplay in Kansas City. And just a smidge. W T F. They have sold 2000 tickets. Seriously…. W.T.F.
