In it’s sixth year, Ink and the Record Machine’s Middle of the Map Fest continues to grow into a behemoth of a culture festival, featuring an expertly curated showcase of music, film, and “ideas” (the fest’s speaker series) each April & May in Kansas City, Missouri. It’s an 11 day collection of media that can truly change your life as well as show off the rapidly developing center of culture that is Kansas City (I mean, Huff Post did name it one of the “coolest cities to visit”), which serves as the festival campus for the half month of fun.

The festival is broken up into chunks with Film (25+ films) happening April 28–May 1, Ideas happening April 27–May 3, and Music (100+ bands) happening May 4-7. All across 13 different venues.

The full lineup, which was announced yesterday, features music from Cold War Kids, Manchester Orchestra, The Struts, Aimee Mann, Zhu, Vince Staples, Charles Bradley, The Good Life, STRFKR, La Sera, Me Like Bees, The Noise FM, Captiva, Shy Boys, and so many more. The full Film festival lineup has yet to be announced but it will feature a special music performance from Peelander-Z. Ideas will feature speaking events with Fred Armisen of the show Portlandia, Aaron Draplin (founder and designer of Field Notes), Tom Vanderbilt (author of You May Also Like and Traffic), Nolan Gasser (Chief Musicologist from Pandora radio), Brendan O’Shaughnessy (founder and designer at Ocean & Sea), and many more.

Take a look at the full music lineup flyer below, watch the announcement video, and be sure to grab your tickets for the festival before they sell out.
