80/35 Festival 2015 Recap

80/35 Festival 2015 Recap

Des Moines never disappoints when it comes to supporting music and the arts. For two whole days, Friday & Saturday, July 10th & 11th, Iowans filled the streets of downtown Des Moines to cheer on their favorite musicians and admire the artwork and talents of many of the vendors that were set up between the three performance stages. But, the 80/30 Music Festival isn’t simply about the music and the artists. Similar to the Iowa State Fair, the festival is loaded with food trucks and food stands, with each one producing a different style of cuisine or snack.

80/35The beginning of the festival was scarce of fans, but as the end of the second day rolled around and Weezer took on the HyVee Main Stage, the audience was packed like sardines with hundreds of screaming fans.

If you’ve never been to a music festival or attended a concert, but have always desired to, 80/35 is an affordable way to see over 20 fabulous artists while experiencing the different tastes of Des Moines. 80/35 is family friendly with genres for everyone!
