Find Your Way to the Middle of the Map Fest

We just love downtown indie festivals like this brainchild of a local Kansas City label owner. The Middle of the Map Festival is returning to KC this April 5-7,2012. This year promises over eighty bands at eight venues on ten stages — all this for a very reasonable $35 three-day pass or $20 for single day tickets.

New this year is a third day and four extra venues to accommodate all the artists. Mission of Burma, Neon Indian, Fucked Up, and Fun are just a few of the many acts. See the full list below.

UNICYCLE LOVES YOU.

Born during a sweaty, backstage, Bonnaroo downpour, the Chief Festival Junkie's mission in life is to dance, write, and travel to every great festival that this wide world has to offer. While his identity remains a mystery, you may have already met him, probably when he helped himself to your party favors.
