Machine Gun Kelly is headlining the inaugural Kelce Jam, a new festival created and hosted by Kansas City Chiefs football star Travis Kelce.

The event takes place April 28 in Kansas City, and tickets go on sale Friday, April 7.

As Kelce tells Billboard, he and Kelly go way back — they actually lived down the street from each other while growing up in Cleveland.

“It’s been amazing to see a hometown hero selling out stadiums,” Kelce says. “So for me, MGK was a no-brainer and I personally drafted some of my favorite artists in the world alongside him.”

Other artists on the Kelce Jam lineup include rappers Rick Ross and Tech N9ne, and DJ duo Loud Luxury.
