MidCoast Takeover

The event began in 2010 (then named Midwasteland Takeover) as a group of musicians and music lovers gathering for a Kansas City-focused showcase at the nation’s largest music festival in Austin, Texas. In 2011, the name of the showcase changed to accurately represent the origin of talent it features each year. A permanent home at Shangri-La in Austin has allowed the showcase to grow into a four-day, two-stage event. Taking musicians to Austin reflects attention back on the vibrant music scenes in Kansas City and throughout the Midwest.

All funds for MidCoast Takeover are raised and distributed independently. No funds from Apocalypse Meow, Abby’s fund for Musicians’ Health Care or any health and wellness programs are used for MidCoast Takeover.

“The music that comes out of Kansas City rivals anything made on either coast, and I honestly believe that, because we’re in the middle, we have to kick so damn hard to be listened to. A lot of our music is better because we have the tenacity to get it out there. We have to fight to be heard” – Abigail Henderson, Founder
