The 2013 Kanrocksas Music Festival scheduled for June 28 and 29 and the Kansas Speedway has been cancelled due to insufficient ticket sales.  The festival included many big names in electronic and indie music, including fun., Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Pretty Lights, Tiesto, Passion Pit, MGMT, The Avett Brothers and more.

The Kanrocksas website posted the following statement:

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 electronicly. 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.

Fans are voicing their displeasure on the Kanrocksas Facebook page, mainly because the festival was cancelled so late, creating a great inconvenience for those who made travel plans or had skipped other music festivals to attend the weekend shows.  Some are blaming high ticket prices on the poor ticket sales, while others simply preferred to see a different lineup of bands.
