The celebration continues, said Travis Kelce, announcing Tuesday his first-ever personal music festival — Kelce Jam — on the heels of the star Chiefs player’s Super Bowl victory alongside Patrick Mahomes, Andy Reid and the two-time championship squad.
“The Super Bowl victory lap is not over yet,” Kelce said in a press release announcing the April 28 star-studded event. “KC, just wait to see what I have in store for you all with my inaugural Kelce Jam — draft weekend’s biggest event ever, featuring my homies Machine Gun Kelly, Rick Ross, Loud Luxury and Tech N9ne, some of KC’s best eats, awesome brand activations, and unmatched championship energy.”
“Get ready to fight for your right to party!”
The inaugural event Kelce Jam — set for Friday, April 28 at Azura Amphitheater in Bonner Springs, Kansas — will unofficially kick-off an epic weekend of football in Kansas City as hundreds of thousands of fans descended upon the city for the NFL Draft, said Kelce.
A pre-sale begins 10 a.m. Friday, April 7. The all-ages event is expected to welcome 15,000 fans — and sell out quickly. Fans may register now online at KelceJam.com ahead of Friday’s ticket pre-sale.
General admission tickets start at $49.99, TickPick VIP passes start at $224.99.

Kelce Jam’s VIP experience is expected to grant access to a VIP viewing zone and the TickPick VIP Lounge featuring complimentary gourmet bites from Q39 BBQ, unlimited non-alcoholic beverages, and a dedicated cash bar.
In addition, all fans will have the opportunity to enjoy the world-famous Joe’s BBQ, which will be offered for sale within the event. Offering a special “Kelce Combo,” Joe’s will blend the best of Cleveland and KC featuring a rib and sausage combo with a Cleveland mustard inspired BBQ sauce, according to the festival.
Kelce Jam is produced by Medium Rare, an events company specializing in iconic celebrity-driven events timed to coincide with big moments in sports, including Shaq’s Fun House with Shaquille O’Neal and Gronk Beach with Rob Gronkowski.
