Ten years of culture, art, community, and ground-breaking music was celebrated last weekend in Des Moines, Iowa at the 80/35 Music Festival. Started in 2008, 80/35, which is named after the two major interstates that intersect Des Moines, the music festival has aimed to merge local, regional, and international music acts with art and food vendors as well as culture. It also works to improve the music scene within the city, fosters a sense of community, and works within the greater Des Moines area to give back as much as possible.

2017 brought acts like Hop Along, Charles Bradley, MGMT and The Shins to the headlining stage with acts like Modern Life Is War, Bad Bad Hats, Glitter Density, and a ton more playing the free stages that circled the central portion of the festival. Check out our photo gallery below and relive the awesome weekend, or live it for the first time through the photos and attend 80/35’s eleventh year in 2018.
