Continuing with our recent onslaught of summer music festival news, we now bring you the initial lineup for the 80/35 festival in Des Moines, Iowa. 

Though the full lineup isn't yet official, 80/35 has been continuously trickling news in the past few weeks, including the announcement of headliners Ben Harper & the Relentless7 and Public Enemy. The most recent addition includes ethereal post-rockers Broken Social Scene, harmonizing tap-dancing troupe Tilly and the Wall and the rowdy boys of Man Man

So far, a modest but diverse lineup spanning Jewish reggae (Matisyahu) to chamber pop (Margot & the Nuclear So and So's) will grace the festival's four stages. 80/35 (named after the junction of interstates 80 and 35 in Des Moines) is July 3-4; two-day passes are available for $70 here.
