Music festival at Kansas Speedway called off

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) – A two-day festival of alternative, pop and rap music at Kansas Speedway scheduled for late June has been called off.

Organizers of Kanrocksas announced the cancellation Tuesday, citing low ticket sales.

The festival was scheduled to open June 28 with a lineup that included Fun., Passion Pit, She and Him, Kendrick Lamar and Imagine Dragons.

The cancellation was announced jointly by Midwest Music Festivals and Kansas Speedway. A message on the Kanrocksas website says there are no plans to reschedule the event.

This year’s festival would have been the second Kanrocksas. The first was held in August 2011, also at the NASCAR track in Kansas City, Kan., and attracted more than 30,000 fans with such acts as Eminem, Kid Cudi and the Flaming Lips.
