What You NEED to Know About DFT2018 // Going On Now

Dancefestopians THE TIME IS NOW,

In the Land of Oz, Dancefestopia is the magical and free Emerald City. This year, DFT takes you to another world of imagination and mystery. We’ve prepared a world-class experience that you’ll talk about for the rest of your life!! We can’t wait to host you.

The following is a guide to the Emerald City. Please read carefully and don’t go off track!! There are secret and mysterious discoveries within.


Camping in the Enchanted Forest is UN-believably magical. It’s a manicured grassed-floor forest with mulched paths and string lights. For the savviest among us, there are a couple hundred shaded campsites that overlook the lakes and main stage – and are closest to the venue, water, showers and restrooms. Dancefestopians who secure an early entry pass will have the best opportunity to score these stunning camping locations. The Sunflower Meadow Field Camping is a perfect option for campers who prefer open space – for games, activities or simply to spread out! Sunflower Meadow offers wide-open space to breathe the crisp Kansas air. Each camping pass offers the option to camp in the Forest or Meadow.

Showers, flushable restrooms, napping bunks and electricity is available in camping via a Relaxation Station Pass. This pass offers access to cabins that have these Dorothy-approved amenities. Stay fancy!


“You have plenty of courage, I am sure,” answered Oz. “All you need is confidence in yourself. There is no living thing that is not afraid when it faces danger. The true courage is in facing danger when you are afraid, and that kind of courage you have in plenty.” – OZ

Beyond the music, we invite you to test your courage with the many adventures available to you at Dancefest. These adventures are available until they sell out at! The Flying Monkey Zip Line is the tallest test of courage… starting with a vertical climb to the clouds, you’ll leap off the platform and soar into the unknown. Experiences like this one is what life is all about.

Imagine a rippling current in the healthy serenity of emerald water; secure a relaxing canoe trip pass to coast around the venue. Don’t mind the ferocious alligators – it’s all an illusion :).

The Rock Wall will test your mental and physical strength – it’s mighty tall! No worries though, our trained guides will keep you safely secured.

Just a few tethered hot air balloon and helicopter rides remain available!! The pool party is already sold out!

Dancefestopia offers a secret serene experience just outside of the Emerald City. It’s calm, quiet and peaceful. Venture south, off-grounds toward the big lake to find this amazing place. “If we walk far enough,” says Dorothy, “we shall sometime come to someplace.”

You are going to LOVE the VIP experience. We’re bringing back a two-tier lounge for elevated viewing of the main stage and the VIP bar. As VIP’ers, you’ll also receive exclusive access to an air-conditioned Land of OZ VIP Lounge with real restrooms, electricity for charging electronics, a large stone fireplace and tables to enjoy the VIP food from Nacho Ordinary Taco and exclusive VIP bar (food/drink not included)… all of this overlooks the venue with incredible views of the pool party, main stage area and activities. Very few VIP tickets and upgrades are still available!!


Thursday Night’s main stage pre-party featuring ***Flux Pavilion B2B Doctor P B2B Funtcase B2B Cookie Monsta*** is out of this world. An all-new 150′ Emerald City stage with 40-foot Wizard of Oz figurines that will make you feel like a munchkin. All headliners are on this beautiful main stage… no set conflicts!!

Venture north to the Lollipop Tent for the filthiest of filthy sets. In a massive tent, you can escape the wicked crowd and rage with your closest friends. Further west, near the land of the Wicked Witch, you’ll find the famous Pyromid stage. It’s tucked down a winding lake-side path, nestled between cabins, the lake and the Enchanted Forest. Enjoy the journey.

Finally, you can discover an all-night musical journey at the Renegade Stage in the Sunflower Meadow – because quitters never win!

DFT has partnered with Vibes Hi-Fidelity Earplugs to offer a healthy audio experience. DFT is loud. REAL loud. Save your ears! Unlike standard foam earplugs that muffle sound, Vibes lower the volume of live music to safer and more comfortable levels, while still allowing you to hear everything around you clearly. Vibes’ clear design makes them virtually invisible, so you can be discreet about wearing hearing protection. Vibes Hi-Fidelity Earplugs are available on our ticket page – CLICK HERE and we’ll ship direct to you.

DFT will be the largest gathering of Wizard of Oz characters in the world. Let’s make history together. Each night is themed with the following schedule. We’ll select one lucky winner each night to earn an inaugural Emerald City trophy for the ‘best costume’ of each category.

Thursday — Scarecrow
Friday — Lion
Saturday — Dorothy
Sunday — Tin Man

On the Emerald City lawn, Monaco Cocktail will be serving samples of their new and amazingly refreshing vodka cocktails beneath the shade of their VIP-like entertainment space.


This year, we offer two convenient parking lots: one for campers and the other for non-campers. If you are camping, enter the first lot on the right. If you aren’t camping, you’ll enter the second lot on the right!! Tractor-pulled flatbeds and Festicabs are available to help bring your gear in and out of camping.


“A heart is not judged by how much you love; but by how much you are loved by others.” -The Wizard

Throughout the year, the Dancefestopia festival site is a camp focused on helping under-privileged children. Please offer these kids the kindest of love and respect by maintaining a clean facility. We offer free waste bags for campers and cigarette disposal bins. Lead with peace, love, unity and respect – if you see others hurting the environment, please help and remind them that this is only our temporary home – wild deer, turkey, turtles and many more make this beautiful site their permanent home. Let’s leave our Emerald City in beautiful shape for the animals and children who return when we leave. Leave no trace

At Dancefest, troubles melt like lemon drops. This is our seventh Dancefestopia and without question, it is the best. We couldn’t be more excited for you to join us for this incredible Emerald City experience.
