Scheduled for Oct. 27 and 28 at the Smokey River Entertainment District, CreepShow will combine food, music, haunted houses and more to make for an unforgettable event.

What is CreepShow?

This is the inaugural year of the CreepShow festival, which is produced by TicketSmarter partner Social House Entertainment. The event offers single-day and two-day passes and is open to guests aged 21 and older. In addition to the performances on stage, there will also be a silent disco, costume contest, photo ops and more. 

2023 CreepShow Lineup

Day 1 features a lineup of EDM artists and a headlining DJ set from Porter Robinson. Other artists included on the Friday schedule include Jauz, Lost Kings and DJ Ashton Martin.

On Day 2, CreepShow will have more of a hip-hop vibe with Ty Dolla $ign, 2 Chainz, Lil Pump and Waka Flocka Flame each taking the stage. DJ Ashton Martin will return for Day 2 as well and more artists will be announced soon. 

Where is CreepShow?

CreepShow will be held in the Smokey River Entertainment District in River Bend, Mo. The new, multi-use development is located about 20 minutes northeast of Downtown Kansas City. Smokey River hosted its first event, 420FEST, in 2022 and welcomed more than 8,000 attendees to watch performers like Wiz Khalifa and Joey Bada$$. Other events held there have included the Missouri Growers Cup Music Festival and Canna Brew.

As the Smokey River Entertainment District grows, it plans to host concerts, private events and one-of-a-kind experiences along the banks of the Missouri River. There are also plans for permanent dining and leisure additions to the area.

There will be two large haunted houses on-site that are included in the price of tickets. One is located near the entrance and the other is off to the right, near CannaVillage. The main stage, food vendors and bars will be on the left with an art installation serving as a sort of middle point for the festival grounds

What is Included in VIP?

VIP benefits start from the moment you arrive at the venue with express entry and a commemorative lanyard to hold your ticket. Parking is included in all ticket packages, but VIP ticket holders will have access to a closer lot making it easy to get in and out of the venue. Once you make it through the gates, VIP ticketholders will enjoy an exclusive viewing area near the front of the stage and a VIP lounge with air-conditioned restroom trailers.
