The 24th Kicker Country Stampede has been moved to Topeka due to concerns of flooding and safety in the Tuttle Creek State Park area.

The music festival will now take place at the Heartland Motorsports Park in Topeka on the same dates, June 20-22.

“Safety is our main concern,” Wayne Rouse, president of Country Stampede, said in a news release. “The severe weather prompted us to partner with the good folks over at Heartland Motorsports in Topeka, just 45 minutes away to ensure all of our concert goers will be out of harm’s way. We are maintaining the integrity of what we currently have in place to our new location.”

Tickets are still available. For more information, visit
