Carolina GM Dan Morgan off to strong start with Derrick Brown deal

Kansas City Chiefs star and three-time Super Bowl champion Travis Kelce will return to a Kansas City stage on Saturday, May 18, but this time not on the football field.

Kelce will host his second annual "Kelce Jam" music festival at the Azura Amphitheater. Rappers Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz and American disc jockey Diplo are set to headline the event.

The seven-hour festival will also include local restaurant pop-ups.

"I'm excited to once again welcome fans for the ultimate day of music, food and an electric experience celebrating Kansas City," said the Chiefs tight end in a press release. "Last year you exceeded my expectations when over 20,000 fans showed up in the rain to 'fight for your right to party,' and this year promises to be even more over the top as we welcome Lil Wayne, Diplo and 2Chainz to the stage!"

At last year's event, Kelce famously spiked the Vince Lombardi Trophy while on stage. However, he clarified on his "New Heights" podcast with brother Jason that the trophy was a replica.

Event organizers expect to welcome at least 20,000 fans.

Kelce's girlfriend, pop superstar Taylor Swift, is not in the lineup, as the Grammy award-winning artist will be performing a stop on her Eras Tour in Sweden on the same day.

Last year's performers included Machine Gun Kelly, who headlined, Rick Ross and DJ Irie.
