Hundreds of concertgoers headed to the Richard L. Berkley Riverfront Park in Downtown Kansas City to partake in the area’s first giant dance festival.

Many different artists took to the Pitch main stage and delivered impeccable performances.   Several of the performers including Irv Da Phenom, Iggy Azalea and New Boyz signed autographs and posed with pictures with their fans before and after hitting the stage.    Day one of the festival also featured exclusive new music from London-based DJ Matt Darey.

One of the highlights of the evening was Dev’s set.  The 22-year-old California-based singer-songwriter accompanied by DJ Sour Milk set the stage on fire as they got the audience pumping while she sang some of her hit singles that included: “Like A G6,” “Bass Down Low” and her signature hit: “In the Dark.”

At the other end of the festival, the RedBull MXT truck featured numerous DJs including DJ Kittie, Nick Hyde and Brent Tactic spin dozens of tracks for an energetic crowd, whom also had the opportunity to play video games while listening to the music.
