As coronavirus infection rates spike around the country, Dancefestopia announced that they will be postponing their event to September 2021.
Since 2011, Dancefestopia has become a haven for ravers in the Midwest. Hosted yearly just outside Kansas City, Missouri, the festival has boasted some incredible lineups featuring Porter Robinson, Excision, Adventure Club, and other huge names in the scene. Despite their best efforts to run a safe event in 2020, the festival announced today that they will be postponing the event to September 9-12, 2021.
In a heartfelt statement posted to their social media accounts, the festival’s organizers expressed disappointment but vowed to make the 2021 version the best one yet. “Dancefestopia was going to be one for the books,” they wrote. “We invested a significant amount of resources in an improved forest camping experience, dramatically enhanced production and a renewed emphasis on the smallest of details- all for YOU. These investments are not lost, in fact they will be amplified by an additional year’s worth of time to even further improve your experience. Our return to the Emerald City in 2021 will be incredible.
Like many other festivals, Dancefestopia will honor all tickets purchased for the 2020 event in 2021. Even more, fans who keep their ticket will become a member of the DFT Loyalty Program, which allows fans to receive extra benefits and rewards! If you have tickets for 2020 but can’t commit to 2021, the festival will refund your tickets with an availability window beginning on July 23 and ending August 13.
Dancefestopia had announced a star-studded lineup for 2020, featuring headliners Zeds Dead, Griz, and Rezz as well as fan favorites 12th Planet, Jai Wolf, and Subtronics. With a full year to plan and a history of stellar lineups, there’s no doubt that Dancefestopia will pull out all the stops to make 2021 the best year yet!
