10th Annual Festival
2017 marks a decade of 80/35. Organized by the non-profit Des Moines Music Coalition, 80/35 was founded in 2008 with the vision to spark growth in the city’s live music economy — to think outside the box to further enhance a creative, vibrant culture.
We want to create a place for the people of Des Moines and beyond to come and participate in the music community – that’s why we have two free stages that feature national talent and the Gen Z Showcase for high school performances. Not only do we want to provide great entertainment for existing music fans, but we also want to create a transformative experience that keeps Des Moines residents coming out to shows all year long.
A decade later, the Des Moines music scene has played a pivotal role in improving the city’s quality of life. Bands are no longer merely passing through Des Moines via Interstates 80 and 35. They are stopping here and playing to bigger audiences than ever before. We believe in the power of music. To wake the spirit of the people and stir the street.
