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 brings an estimated attendance of over 30,000 people annually since 2008.[1] More than 45 acts are featured each year including headliners The Flaming Lips and The Roots in 2008, Ben Harper & Public Enemy in 2009, Modest Mouse & Spoon in 2010, Girl Talk and of Montreal in 2011, Death Cab for Cutie & The Avett Brothers in 2012, and David Byrne & St. Vincent and Wu Tang Clan in 2013. Cake will headline in 2014 along with Conor Oberst and backing band Dawes.

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.
