Summer is just about here, and one excited we’re really excited about is the debut of ÜLÉ, coming to Children’s Mercy Park in Kansas City, MO June 24-25.
Brothers Austin Laing and Jake Laing are hometown heroes in the event creation space and music scene. They started throwing massive house parties in 2014, and since then, their Project Laing company has made enormous strides. Having a deep desire to push the limitations of what locals in Kansas City can handle, ÜLÉ Music & Arts Festival is their pride and joy, infusing this 2-day event with as much local flavor as they can, from the food vendors and suppliers, to the staff. Their intrinsic desire to contribute to the city that’s given them so much makes the work put in for ÜLÉ a labor of love.
The inauguration of ÜLÉ will feature massive headliners Slander on Friday, June 24th and RL Grime on Saturday June 25th. The supporting acts are nothing short of diverse and on-trend. Performing Friday is a a coveted DJ set from Jai Wolf, along with superb singer/songwriter/producer/DJ Elohim, and others. Joining Saturday are sure to be incredible sets from the likes of Ekali, Sebastian Paul, and Jooby Truth, to name a few.
Hosted at a location many Kansas City natives will be familiar with, Children’s Mercy Park – recently labeled the #4 highest rated venue in the USA – has been a spot for several renowned festivals including Farm Aid, Flatlands Country Music Festival, and Buzz Beach Ball. Capable of executing cutting-edge audio and world class visual production, there couldn’t be a better spot in Kansas City for these headlining and supporting names to come do what they were born to do.
