Directions to NEXTECH KC hosted at HyVee Arena:

One of the most unique things about venue is that the area we will be playing on multiple basketball courts on the second floor of the buildng. In order to make this as simple as possible, follow these steps to make the transition from the ground floor up to the main concourse.

  1. While it isn't the only way to get to HyVee Arena, we recommend taking the Genessee exit on I-670, just west of downtown Kansas City, Missouri.
  2. Once you get to Genessee, go south - this is a one way only road, so don't mess this up.
  3. When you get to the end of Genessee, after merging to a single lane, take a left to get to the general admission parking lot.
  4. Stay in the right lane as it curves around until you start driving south again. Then take a look to your right (west) and you should see the entrance to the giant GA parking lot.

Once parked, head for south set of 8 doors. You will quickly check in or buy a GA badge at this desk and then take the stairs to the left and right to walk up to the main concourse.

After you reach the concourse, you will see signs that will point you to staircases that will lead you up to the upper floor of HyVee Arena.

Good luck, have fun and enjoy the show!


No outside food or drink is allowed in the venue. There are many different GOOD places to eat on the concourse, which will be open as part of the event.

VIP tickets: Dinner will be served at 6pm on Saturday, snacks and drink will be available during the event as well inside the BYOC seating area.

No derogatory, defamation, racist or otherwise offensive words will be used at any event we host. You will get one warning, unless otherwise blatantly over the line, then you will be asked to leave immediately.
