Kansas City’s Dancefestopia Emerald City



With less than a month out and ticket prices set to increase on Friday, August 16th, the four day camping music festival (September 5th-8th) is showing promising signs of exceeding attendee expectations and raising the bar even higher.

Dancefestopia is primarily known for their bass focused lineup. The festival is living up to that expectation with stage takeovers from bass music label leaders Wakaan and Never Say Die and with over 200 artists on this year’s lineup! The festival is to take place an hour outside of Kansas City on 200 acres of land in La Cygne, Kansas. There will be 4 stages to provide endless music and keep the party going; Emerald City Main Stage, Lollipop Stage, Pyromid Mountain Stage, and Rekinection Stage.


What’s New for Emerald City

Portable Charging with SWFTCharge!

Dancefestopians can keep a full charge by purchasing a portable phone charger with SWFTCharge! The portable charger can be purchased and traded at their booths for an unlimited amount of times. The devices are compatible to Iphones and Androids. The SWFTCharge! has 5500 mAh which can provide 1-2 full charges for the average phone.

The best part about the SWFTCharge! is you can keep the portable charger at the end of the festival. It is rechargeable and if you attend a festival with a SWFTCharge! booth you can trade it in for a new fully charged one! SWFTCharge! has been featured at many other large festivals including Lost Lands, Electric Forest, Summer Camp, Wakaan, and Bass Canyon and are planning to be at more.
