2012 Dates for Des Moines 80/35 Festival!

The two day 80/35 Music Festival in Iowa will take place this year July 6-7, 2012. Now in it’s fifth year, 80/35 brings a mix of national and regional indie acts to the Western Gateway Park in Des Moines. Past performers have included Girl Talk, Modest Mouse, The Walkmen, Galactic, and Railroad Earth.  The 2012 lineup is promising to have 40 bands. If you want to get involved with the lineup, head over the official Facebook page where organizers are taking suggestions.

If you’re wondering about the name, the two interstates that cross in Des Moines are the inspiration.

Here’s a few reviews from previous years 80/35.
