The 80/35 Music Festival announces the program of its concerts

Festival organizers have released the official schedule of all performances for the festival’s 13th year, which will take place July 8-9 at Western Gateway Park.

DES MOINES, Iowa— After two years of cancellations related to COVID-19, the 80/35 music festival is back. On Thursday, the organizers released the official statement program performances on July 8 and 9 at Western Gateway Park.

The festival aims to make live music accessible to the community by offering free performances on four stages. A free stage is the Kum & Go stage, which will feature a mix of regional, national and international acts.

New York group!!! (Chk, Chk, Chk) will headline the Kum & Go stage on July 8, while Prince collaborator MonoNeon will headline the stage on July 9.

“This stage is a place to catch bands before they get huge,” 80/35 festival director Mickey Davis said in a Release. “Anyone in the crowd for Lizzo’s jaw-dropping performance in 2016 will know the energy of emerging artists on the Kum & Go stage.”

Other stages free to the public include the Bravo Stage, the Emerging Artists Stage, and the Iowa Public Radio Stage.

Festival-goers who purchase tickets will have access to the main Hy-Vee stage. Headliners include singer-songwriter Father John Misty (July 8) and pop artist Charli XCX (July 9).

Tickets are on sale now at here.
