Iowa is adding a new summer festival to its calendar this summer. The Hinterland Music Festival will debut July 31-August 1 in Des Moines. It’s already showing a promising lineup with Old Crow Medicine Show, Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros, Brandi Carlile, Future Islands, TV on the Radio, Yonder Mountain String Band, St. Paul and The Broken Bones and Joe Pug. More acts will be announced at a later date.
Here’s how the the website describes the festival:
It’s a weekend of great music under the stars and skyline. It’s two days of music hand-picked by First Fleet’s Sam Summers for the gorgeous backdrop of Water Works Park, a 1,500 acre oasis in the center of our city. In our first year, Hinterland will feature a diverse blend of relevant artists, cyclist events, on-site sculpture and art installations, craft vendors, family engagement and more.
Two day advance tickets are only $75 — a stellar deal considering that kids under 12 get in for free. Passes go on sale February 20th. Hit up the official website for more details.
