With its recent lineup announcement, KANROCKSAS proves that no state in our fine country is safe from dance music’s domination. Following the Midwest event’s inaugural year, the festival took a hiatus in 2012 to make way for some major infield renovations. Now that those are complete, KANROCKSAS is making its return to the Village West area of Kansas City on June 28th and 29th. Although the event isn’t strictly electronic, it does boast some major acts including Tiësto, Pretty Lights, Baauer, Rusko, Congorock, and more. Two-day passes for the event are available for $175.00 via the KANROCKSAS website. Click below the jump for the full lineup.
Partying in Motor City just got a bit better: Detroit Movement Electronic Music Festival has just announced the second wave of artists for its Memorial Day Weekend techno-leaning festival. Phase 1 gave us Ben Klock, Carl Craig, Derrick May & Kevin Saunderson, Digweed, and Hawtin. Phase 2 kicks off the next round with Brodinski & Gessafelstein, Ellen Allein, Louie Vega, Moodymann, Stacey Pullen and even bassier choices like Paper Diamond, Gramatik, and Griz. No word on whether there is a final phase to be announced, but if you’re already convinced, pick up your tickets here.
