Wichita’s newest music festival, Vortex, is an event that is sure to go down in history as one of the biggest summer concerts in Wichita. The Vortex Music Festival offers continuous live music, beer and local food as people come together on the grounds of one of the city’s most iconic landmarks: The Keeper of the Plains.
Wichita Festivals, Inc. (also responsible for the largest and longest-running festival in Kansas, Riverfest), has created a new experience for music fans, bringing in classic bluegrass, country and Americana bands from all over the country, united at a campsite in the heart of the city. Purchase your ticket for one day or enjoy the entire festival, including not only music, but movies, fellowship and fun for everyone.
The two-day event starts Friday afternoon with overnight camping available on-site. Patrons can enjoy the sounds of many locally-known and nationally-known artists including the likes of Dwight Yoakam, Lindi Ortega and Carrie Nation & The Speakeasy.
The Vortex Music Festival keeps the action coming with two stages for live music, one at the campsite and one in the concert area. Food trucks and vendors will keep concert goers hydrated and satisfied with the best local brews and food options.
Don’t miss out on water balloon fights, watermelon-eating contests, hula-hooping and lawn games, and be sure to catch the midnight movie under the stars. If you’re a night owl or want to stay up all night, there are late night activities like glow-in-the-dark horseshoes and more.
