With the cancellation of Moonrise Festival fresh in the minds of many East Coast residents, it’s the Midwest’s turn: Kanrocksas Music Festival, scheduled for June 28th and 29th at the Kansas Speedway in Kansas City, has been cancelled due to “insufficient ticket sales”.
The full statement, from the official Kanrocksas website:
“Due to insufficient ticket sales, Midwest Music Festivals and Kansas Speedway have decided to cancel the 2013 Kanrocksas Music Festival scheduled for June 28th and 29th.”
There are no plans to reschedule the event at this time.
The Kanrocksas authorized ticketing agent, ground(ctrl), will process all ticket refunds including service fees electronically. Customers will receive an email Tuesday, May 28th informing them of the cancellation and when they can expect their refund.

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

And from their official Facebook page:
Two festival cancellations is hardly cause for full-scale panic, but it’s setting a disturbing trend I’d rather not see continued. How do you feel about the cancellation of Kanrocksas? Is it just another example of poor marketing and promoting, or is it an indicator of something big on the horizon?
