When the NFL decided to hold the 2023 NFL Draft in the hometown of 2022 Superbowl Champions, The Kansas City Chiefs, they probably weren’t expecting the team’s extremely charismatic and mercurial tight end to throw a giant party in the form of a concert festival.

Travis Kelce, fresh off of his stint hosting Saturday Night Live in March, wanted to give Chiefs fans the rager of a lifetime. Selecting an outdoor concert venue just outside of the Kansas City Metro- Azura Amphitheatre in Bonner Springs, Kansas- Kelce established the “first-ever” Kelce Jam Festival. The festivities included musical performances by Machine Gun Kelly, Rick Ross, Loud Luxury, and Kansas City’s own Tech N9ne, with Pixis Drones wowing all of Chiefsnation with a drone light show sponsored by T-Mobile.

Coming off a Super Bowl win and celebrating the 2023 NFL Draft, Travis Kelce of the Kansas City Chiefs called in Pixis Drones help him execute the the party of the year: The very first “Kelce Jam” for football fans around KC.

At its core, Kelce Jam was a music festival, where artists including Rick Ross, Loud Luxury, and Machine Gun Kelly took the stage. Post-concert, faces were drawn to the sky for an extraordinary display. The Kelce Jam NFL Draft drone show featured vibrant animations of a football sailing through a field goal, Kelce’s jersey number, the Kansas City skyline, and more.

“The drone show didn’t disappoint,” proclaimed Yahoo! News, just one of many media networks to spotlight the drone light show. Even more importantly, Kelce vowed to “run it back” next year — and here at Pixis Drones, we’re ready for KC round two. Cheers to next year’s Kelce Jam NFL Draft Drone Show!
