Taking its name from interstate I-80 and I-35 that intersect in Des Moines, the 80/35 festival was first held in 2008 and has become a multi day affair drawing a crowd of thousands to the Western Gateway Park. It is organized by the non-profit Des Moines Music Coalition. One cool fact about 80/35 is that a large part of their lineup is can be seen for free on multiple stages.
