Lineup Announced For This Year’s Crossroads Music Fest
On Saturday, September 12 the 5th Annual Crossroads Music Fest showcases the best in local music, art, and dance, all centered in the Crossroads Art District in downtown Kansas City. Presented by the locally owned and operated Spice of Life Productions, CMF5 will feature 25 bands on six stages: Crosstown Station, Skylight Room, The Brick, Czar Bar, Madrigal and Mercy Seat Alley.
“We’re extremely excited to be able to bring the event back for a fifth year and maintain our commitment to presenting the best in live, Kansas City music. CMF5 provides accessible entertainment for music lovers of all ages, and we look forward to hosting a diverse crowd downtown,” said Crossroads Music Fest’s creator and Spice of Life Productions’ owner Bill Sundahl in a press release.
The Skylight Room will feature a FREE event after 9 p.m. during the Fest.
