80/35

As the child of former SNL cast member, Rob Schneider and actress, London King, Elle King was raised to be an outgoing, strong woman who could accomplish anything she set her mind to. While she definitely got the extrovert personality of her father, acting didn’t call to her like music did. All it took was one listen of all-girl pop-punk group the Donnas and 9 year old King knew she wanted to be a musician. Over the years she discovered her own sound and style that has led to her successes as an americana, blues rock artist. ... See MoreSee Less

    Awesome festival. Can’t believe Soccer Mommy & Ratboys were on the free stages. I was able to have an awesome time here without paying any money. It’s such a plus that it’s in the heart of the city. I plan on going back!

    The layout of the festival was great – anything that was free was on the outer perimeter and the paid stage was in a fenced-in area in the center. It was easy to come and go without a ‘no re-entry’ policy or festival gates with huge lines. We had a lot of fun checking out Des Moines in between the sets we wanted to catch!

    80/35 has a really really really good thing going for them. Location in the middle of a downtown area that confines you enough to let anyone who isn’t familiar with Des Moines area (me) feel like they have a grasp of the grounds rather quickly, but the fact that a good portion of the festival is free, it allows the goer to explore surrounding businesses, the pappajohn sculpture park, and other hidden finds.

    The music they brought in for their free viewing areas (in 2018) I would pay the going rate for a 1 day festival pass to see, so 2 days plus a great mix of paid section performers/headliners put 80/35 on another level. They are getting well deserved headlines for promoting female artists not just in quantity but in diversity, quality, and at the top of the bill both nights (Phantogram, Kesha).

    Regardless of the fact that it is the midwest, the music lineup, or
    that there is so much to do without even buying a 2 day pass, 80/35 really seemed to attract some of the happiest, nice, and overall just cool people (of all ages) to be around for the festival. I would highly recommend this fest to anyone whether they are on a budget or not. I’m very excited to see how 80/35 tops themselves in 2019 and years forward.
