The chief organizer of the 5th annual 80/35 Music Festival in downtown Des Moines is predicting this year’s event will draw the biggest crowd yet.
Amedeo Rossi says ticket sales are brisk for the outdoor fest scheduled for this coming Friday and Saturday. “We have our highest amount of sales at this point in the five years, so that’s exciting. But, we’ve made a bigger investment,” Rossi said.
The headliners this year are both past Grammy Award nominees: the Avett Brothers (Friday) and Death Cab For Cutie (Saturday). Complete band lineup and ticket information is available at www.80-35.com. The festival draws roughly 30,000 people to downtown Des Moines.
