Presented by U.S. Cellular and taking place at Western Gateway Park in downtown Des Moines, this year’s 80/35 Festival is set for July 2-3.
Girl Talk occupies the top slot on the Saturday, July 2 lineup that also features performances by Galactic, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Titus Andronicus, Jessica Lea Mayfield, Thankful Dirt and The Poison Control Center.
Sunday, July 3 has Potter and her Nocturnals in the headline position and will include performances by Parlours, Bitch, The Giving Tree Band and Bear Hands. However, the daily lineups only represent a short list of acts as organizers at the Greater Des Moines Music Coalition expect nearly 60 national acts, regional performers and local faves.
What’s the going price for two days of music in Des Moines? Fans scooped up all early bird tickets and VIP passes in only three days. Currently you have your choice of advance two-day tickets priced at $45, one-day tix for $25 and $125 VIP passes. But you’ll need to act soon because prices will jump once the advance tickets sell out. For more information, visit 80-35.com.
