80/35 Music Festival 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 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 and Public Enemy in 2009, Modest Mouse & Spoon in 2010, Girl Talk and Of Montreal in 2011, Death Cab for Cutie and The Avett Brothers in 2012, David Byrne & St. Vincent and Wu Tang Clan in 2013, and Cake and Conor Oberst in 2014.

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.
