"The Super Bowl victory lap is not over yet ... KC, just wait to see what I have in store for you all with my inaugural Kelce Jam — Draft Weekend's biggest event ever featuring my homies Machine Gun Kelly, Rick Ross, Loud Luxury and Tech N9ne, some of KC's best eats, awesome brand activations, and unmatched championship energy. Get ready to fight for your right to party!" said Travis Kelce.
Coming off of his second Super Bowl Championship, Travis Kelce has cemented himself as one of the all-time greats on and off the field. Continuing to score touchdowns in the offseason, the future hall of famer recently hosted Saturday Night Live, created the country's #1 overall podcast "New Heights" with brother Jason, and launched his own clothing brand. Now, he's poised to start his own music festival. A recipe for success, Kelce Jam will infuse the KC spirit throughout the event while incorporating specialty curated activations, food and beverage, talent, and more.
Poised to be one of the biggest musical events of the year, Kelce Jam will welcome a slate of renowned performing artists, headlined by Machine Gun Kelly who last visited KC in July 2022, performing to a sold-out crowd of nearly 20,000 at the T-Mobile Center. The 2023 GRAMMY-nominated artist also sold 20 million albums globally and continues to sell out stadiums on his current worldwide tour. Rising to fame after being the first rapper to win the talent show at the legendary Apollo Theater, the cross-over pop-punk star has had two #1 albums, including this year's release "Mainstream Sellout." GRAMMY-nominated artist Rick Ross will hit the stage to perform hits such as "Idols Become Rivals" and "Hustlin'" while Loud Luxury, the critically acclaimed DJ duo, will bring a dose of electronic dance music to the Kelce Jam main stage. Travis will also welcome hip-hop hometown favorite and Kansas City legend Tech N9ne.
Kelce Jam is offering unique VIP experiences including TickPick VIP passes starting at $224.99, which grants access to a VIP viewing zone and the TickPick VIP Lounge featuring complimentary gourmet bites, unlimited non-alcoholic beverages, and a dedicated cash bar. In Kansas City, BBQ is a way of life, and one of Kansas City's most notable restaurants, Q39, will offer complimentary BBQ to TickPick VIP ticket holders.
In addition, all fans will have the opportunity to enjoy the world-famous Joe's BBQ, which will be offered for sale within the event. Offering a special "Kelce Combo," Joe's will blend the best of Cleveland and KC, featuring a rib and sausage combo with a Cleveland mustard-inspired BBQ sauce. Joe's Kansas City Bar-B-Que was included in Anthony Bourdain's 2011 list of "13 Places to Eat Before You Die," published in Men's Health, and features BBQ staples including brisket, pulled pork, and ribs.
