Buzz Beach Ball

When: July 16-17

Where: Children’s Mercy Park

Cost: $49 to $99

Sponsored by KRBZ 96.5 The Buzz, Buzz Beach Ball is a two-day event featuring alternative headliners Alabama Shakes and Cage the Elephant, along with over 20 other artists.

This year, the festival will take place over two days, July 16-17, as opposed to last year’s one-day event. The event will be held at Children’s Mercy Park, with a general admission pit and three levels of seating. The large general admission field and two stages give plenty of room for fans to see artists who they love and fall in love with new bands.

Buzz Beach Ball is focused on alternative and rock bands, with other notable pop artists including Fitz and the Tantrums, Bleachers and X Ambassadors. Along with those bands, Violent Femmes, who recently released their first album after 16 years, will be performing, as well as Eagles of Death Metal, the band that played Le Bataclan during the November 2015 Paris terror attacks. In addition to those bands, Brave The Spirit, Madisen Ward and The Mama Bear and Hembree are all bands bands native to the Kansas-Missouri area.

What makes this festival stand out from others is the variety of acts, giving everyone something to look forward to. With Glass Animals being the only returning act from last year, The Buzz will introduce at least 23 acts, which almost double last year’s number.

As far as tickets go, prices for attending only one day of the festival can range from $49 to $99 for regular admission, with higher prices for VIP. The only available passes are those for two days. The passes are limited, though. The gates to Children’s Mercy Park will open at 2 p.m. and general parking is available at the Speedway.

The Buzz brings together a vast array of artists, creating an unforgettable summer festival experience for those who enjoy music.
