Become a Member

Contribute to DMMC and you will be instantly enrolled as a Member of DMMC. As a Member you get “Early Bird” access to 80/35 tickets and VIP passes. Plus you gain free admission to the Lagunitas Couchtrippin Lounge at 80/35. Best of all, your gift will make Des Moines rock!

If you have donated or pledged at least $35 or more to DMMC in the last year, you will receive a cheat code enabling you to purchase 80/35 tickets at the lowest rate 48 hours before the general public.


There are two options to donate:

1) Monthly or Yearly contributions that automatically renew each year; one less thing to worry about, right?

2) A single, one-time donation.

All donations to the DMMC are tax deductible; we’ll even provide a letter that says so. Members of DMMC benefits are good for one year and may be made with a one time gift of $35.00 or more or automatic monthly payments of $5.00 or more.

Below are the contribution levels and benefits.



Monthly contribution: $5/month

Yearly contribution: $35/year

  • First opportunity to buy early bird tickets and VIP passes to 80/35.
    • NEW for 2015 – access to Lagunitas Couchtrippin Lounge at 80/35

  • Subscription to DMMC e-newsletter.
  • Happiness that can only come from helping Des Moines rock!

You can also make a one-time, non-renewing donation. A one-time donation of at least $35 automatically enrolls you to Become a Member of DMMC and the benefits are the same at the annual levels noted above.
