80/35 music festival announces 2023 lineup, tickets on sale now

Though we’re in the heart of December, central Iowa organizers already have their eyes turned toward summer, booking a slew of performances.

Western Gateway Park, 1205 Locust St., in downtown Des Moines will once again host the 80/35 Music Festival, a two-day event that returns in 2023.

“From storied rock bands to legendary hip hop to acts performing in the U.S. for the first time, we’ve put together what we think is a stellar lineup of music that is sure to offer something for everyone,” Mickey Davis, the executive director of the Des Moines Music Coalition and 80/35 festival director, said in a news release announcing the event. “After a successful return in 2022 after two years off due to the pandemic, we look forward to bringing the energy of Des Moines’ longest-running music festival back again in 2023.”
