Travis Kelce personally curated the lineup of his ‘Kelce Jam’ music festival in Kansas City next weekend and even apparently called in some favors to get Lil Wayne and Diplo at the top of the bill.

The three-time Super Bowl winner hosts the second edition of his festival on Saturday with a mega lineup in Kansas City and 20,000 fans expected to attend.

And two of Kelce’s food partners for the event – Medium Rare founders Joe Silberzweig and Adam Richman – have praised the Chiefs star for the effort he has put into getting the event to go ahead.

Travis is here curating the lineup,’ Richman told Chiefs Wire. ‘These were names that he sought after, and he knew that they were not only his favorites but also that they had a good pulse on the city.

He has his fingers on the city’s pulse and can call in favors against legends that may not have come otherwise. I don’t think Lil Wayne has been in Kansas City for quite some time. (He) may not have come, but when Travis Kelce calls, you answer.

‘That’s proven here, with Lil Wayne being such an iconic legend coming and showing out for ‘Kelce Jam’ because of his and Travis’ relationship.’

Silberzweig added: ‘What was important for Travis is making this festival feel like it’s for everyone and that younger, old, moving families want to come out.

‘No matter what your tastes are, this festival is for the masses. This is for the people of KC. They get started at $49, And the musical lineup speaks to that, right? It’s a little bit of everything.

‘We have some local DJs opening and building throughout the evening with our headliners.’

As well as Lil Wayne and Diplo, 2 Chainz, Irie and E-V are also scheduled to perform. Tickets, which start at $50, are still available at the time of writing.

It has been reported that next year, Kelce will take the festival across the United States with a string of dates in cities from Los Angeles to Miami. Last year, Kelce had Machine Gun Kelly headline the event.

He apparently has a $15million budget to stage shows in future, according to The Sun.

At present, Kelce is in Paris, where he attended girlfriend Taylor Swift’s latest show on her Eras Tour.

Swift definitely won’t be at Kelce Jam this weekend – the date clashes with her show in Stockholm, Sweden.
