Rockfest 2014!

Posted 28 Feb 2014 in Bob's Blog

Today is the second most exciting day of the year at 98.9 The Rock.  Today is the day we unveil Rockfest 2014!  (Yes, the day of Rockfest is the most exciting day)

When one Rockfest ends, preparation for the next year begins right away.  We take a good look at what went right and what we can do better.  All of your comments from the web site and social media postings are factored into our plans.  Over the years, the best ideas for the show have come from you, the audience.  Please keep those comments and suggestions coming!

Your participation, not just coming to the show, but making those suggestions is what makes Rockfest so special.  Rockfest is the biggest one-day music festival in America because of you.  You built it, you support it, and your input continues to make the entire Rockfest experience better and better.

It’s hard to believe this will be our 11th year back at The Liberty Memorial.  When we moved the show out of Sand Stone to give you cheaper tickets, cheaper beer & drinks, and the freedom to move around to make Rockfest the experience you want it to be, nearly everyone in the industry told us we would fall on our ass.  11 years later, we’ve had the last laugh because the doubters never understood our secret weapon, you!  By building a festival around what you wanted to see and experience, Rockfest has become a national institution.  So please, keep letting us know how to make Rockfest an even better experience.

On behalf of the entire staff, thank you for making Rockfest the event it has become and we look forward to partying with you May 31st in downtown KC!
