Save the date!!!

Chuck Byrd of Platform Entertainment has announced the date for the 2016 Grub and Groove Festival. This year, the festival will be held on Sat., Aug. 27 at Jabara Airport. 

While the location will be the same, Byrd says expect a bigger and better festival. Last year, Platform held a similar festival in Kansas City, just weeks before the Wichita event. This year, the event is out and he’s promoting Wichita as the place to be. He’s marketing the festival as far north as Omaha and south to OKC. He’s even planning to bus people in for the festival. 

A few other planned changes and/or improvements include:

     •A bigger footprint. That’s more room for more people and room to spread out and move the vendors further away from the concert area. 

     •Two ticket levels only. Last year, there were three ticket levels, this year there will be just two — general admission and VIP.

     •Offsite parking with a shuttle. Although parking wasn’t outrageous last year, with more people expected to attend, Byrd is planning ahead to circumvent potential problems. 

Tickets go on sale June 1. Stay tuned. We’ll be promoting advance tickets giveaways and/or discounts with contests around the announcement of the 2016 artist lineup.
