Killer Mike, Vince Staples and Steve Aoki are set to headline the inaugural Elsewhere Festival to be held June 21-22.

The Elsewhere Festival and Conference, which is scheduled to take place in Wichita, Kansas, will also feature performances from Lane 8, Snow Tha Product, BADBADNOTGOOD, Sudan Archives, TOKiMONSTA, and several others.

In addition to his performance, Killer Mike will appear as a speaker at the conference, addressing the need for freedom of expression.

The festival, created and produced by Wichita-based artist and music worker collective Midtopia, will aim to build community and opportunity for musicians and music workers in the Midwest.

“Midtopia was created to serve a need in Wichita, but really applies, well, elsewhere,” says Midtopia CEO and director Jessie Hartke in a release. “There are so many talented artists and music workers alike, and such wonderful local scenes, but industry support is really lacking and systematically flawed.”

The event will take place across local Wichita venues with one free stage open to the public. The two-day event will also see some panel discussions, various art experiences, an immersive light and sound stage, and serve as a platform for community-based artists of all kinds.
