Whether you’re a football fan or not, it’s almost impossible to avoid overhearing conversations about the forthcoming NFL Draft weekend that will take place in Kansas City. But now, it looks like we have even more incentive to tune into the broadcasted event as Fall Out Boy will be performing for the NFL Draft Concert Series on Thursday, April 27 at 11 PM ET/10 PM CT.

The NFL Draft will run from April 27-29 with a special musical guest performance to conclude each day. Following Fall Out Boy’s performance on Thursday evening, the three-day event at the Draft Theater in front of Union Station will see Mötley Crüe’s set on Friday evening and Thundercat’s performance on Saturday evening. All of the performances will be broadcast live on the NFL’s official website, Facebook page, and YouTube channel.
In addition to the three headline acts for the NFL Draft Concert Series, Kansas City Chiefs tight end and Super Bowl champion, Travis Kelce, will be hosting the Kelce Jam Music Festival during NFL Draft weekend. Performances at Kelce’s festival will include Machine Gun Kelly, Kansas City native Tech N9ne, Rick Ross, and Loud Luxury. Kelce Jam Music Festival will take place at the Azura Amphitheater in Bonner Springs, Kansas, on Friday, April 28.
“With the draft coming to KC, I think it’s perfect timing for me to throw the biggest music festival that’s ever come here,” Kelce shared. “We’ll have some unreal stage productions, Kansas City’s best food, tons of attractions, and football-related games. This will be a whole lot of fun.”
“I took note from what Gronk did last year,” Kelce continued. “I want to throw a big party knowing that the draft is coming to Kansas City. It’s a special event for the city to host…I’m going to need Kansas City to come out and be electric with me.”
