80/35 is a multi-day music festival in Des Moines, Iowa. The name comes from two prominent interstates, I-80 and I-35, which intersect in Des Moines. The festival includes a stage for national touring bands and several smaller stages featuring regional and local supporting acts. In addition to music there are booths for local organizations, interactive art, food and beverage sales, and resting places.
The 2014 festival will take place July 4–5 at Western Gateway Park in downtown Des Moines and feature headliner Conor Oberst with backing band Dawes. A second announcement prior to the festival will reveal an additional headliner along with the remainder of supporting acts.
The festival is nearly 100% volunteer run, and is organized by the Greater Des Moines Music Coalition, a 501(c)(3) non-profit committed to building a stronger and more diverse live music economy in greater Des Moines.
