An upcoming Kansas music festival set to feature Fun., hip-hop star Kendrick Lamar and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs has been cancelled because of low ticket sales.

The Kanrocksas Music Festival, which was also slated to include sets from Dutch DJ Tiesto, pop rockers MGMT and Passion Pit, was due to take place on 28 and 29 June (13) but a lack of interest has resulted in promoters calling off the event.

A post on the festival's website reads, "Due to insufficient ticket sales, Midwest Music Festivals and Kansas Speedway have decided to cancel the 2013 Kanrocksas Music Festival scheduled for June 28th and 29th. There are no plans to reschedule the event at this time."
