The Avett Brothers, Dutch EDM DJ Tiesto and up-and-coming hip-hop prodigy Kendrick Lamar are the first artists announced for the 2013 edition of the Kanrocksas Music Festival, which is set for June 28-29 at the Kansas Speedway in Kansas City, Kan. More than 30 artists from the genres of rock, electronic music and hip-hop are expected to complete the festival's bill, with more talent to be announced in the coming weeks.

This year's event marks the second edition of Kanrocksas and the return of the festival after taking 2012 off due to major renovations last summer at the Kansas Speedway. Passes for this year's festival are available at an early-bird price of $150 for a 2-day ticket ($40 off) and $25 for camping ($25 off). Get tickets at those prices while you still can, as the price goes up after Jan. 31.

"Kanrocksas introduced Midwest music lovers and fans from around the globe to a top-tier music festival experience," boasts a press release from the event. "As the first major music event to take place at Kansas Speedway, festival organizers succeeded in creating a one-of-a-kind experience and fans can expect nothing less in 2013."
