Hip-hop has provided the soundtrack to some of America's most significant cultural events, from major boxing matches to battle-rapped presidential debates. Witness music history with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $42, you get one all-weekend general-admission ticket to Dancefestopia, held at Richard L. Berkley Riverfront Park in Kansas City from 4 p.m. on Friday, June 1, to at 2:30 a.m. on Sunday, June 3, (up to a $129 value).
Hip-hop performers, electronic beat breakers, and record spinners collide at Dancefestopia, a two-day, two-night audio and visual extravaganza held in a 20-acre party zone. Headliner Wiz Khalifa rose to fame interweaving rhymes with those of Rick Ross, Snoop Dogg and other greats. Pop darling Dev catapulted to attention with her surprising expertise in jet mechanics on Far East Movement's hit "Like a G6" and has stayed in the spotlight with the sax-drenched "In the Dark," which ranked among Spin’s Favorite Pop Tracks of 2011. Guests can consult Facebook to see the lineup of over 40 regionally and nationally renowned artists, including forthcoming announcements about the headliner and additional artists, as well as information about the differences between a turntable and a waffle iron.
