Kanrocksas music festival on hold until 2013

The Kanrocksas Music Festival — which featured headliners Eminem and Muse in its 2011 inaugural showing — has been placed on hold until 2013.

While the organizers of the festival had hoped to have a 2012 Kanrocksas Music Festival, due to construction at the Kansas Speedway where the event is hosted, the venue will not be available this year for organizers to use.

A press release on the festival’s website, kanrocksas.com, states, “After a lengthy evaluation process, festival organizers have decided to spend 2012 working with local and national music communities to plan the second Kanrocksas Music Festival for summer 2013.”
