Photo Reel of 2nd Annual 80/35 Music Fest in Des Moines Iowa!


What a way to celebrate Independence Day! Great Bands. Fireworks. Brats and Beer. You name it, they had it! All this fun and excitement happened in Des Moines, Iowa for the second annual Open Air Music Festival (80/35). 3 big stages and over 40 bands, flooded the streets of downtown with the 10,000+ crowd. Even with the rain on friday and saturday the bands fought threw it and gave everyone a warm welcome.

The highlight of the festival was Des Moines very own, The Envy Corps playing at the Meredith West Stage. The crowd invaded the blocked off press area and eventually started a stage invasion after the band called them up. Well over 2,000 people, fans flooded the big alley way, stood on roof tops, and of course took the stage with the band. Trust me these guys are up their with the big shots, i.e. Radiohead, Editors, White LIes, and many others.

More videos and photos to come shortly!
