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.
The lineup thus far:
Ben Harper and Relentless7
Stephen Malkmus and The Jicks
Tilly and the Wall
Broken Social Scene
G. Love and Special Sauce
Girl in a Coma
Margot & the Nuclear So and So's
Wild Sweet Orange
