Free and open to the public for all ages.

Hosted by Kevin Kissinger and Shane Morris, the KC Regional electro-music  festival encompasses all styles of electronic music, DIY instruments, performances, collaborations, and demonstrations.  

The KC Regional formed from the increasing need for a live performance outlet for experimental electronic music in the mid-western states. The festival is not limited to participants in the region alone, but does seek to consolidate and network with artists in the extended area. The intention is to create a cooperative community where artists and enthusiasts participate and benefit together.

Hosting both stereo and 5.1 surround sound, the Walnut Creek Clubhouse is a wonderful setting just of the Missouri River with the KC skyline on the horizon. The venue has large vaulted wooden ceilings, wonderful lighting, comfy couches, and great acoustics.

This year the festival will have a large screen with real-time digital art by Michael O'Bannon.
