Become a member

GIVING ROCKS! Contribute at least $35 to become a DMMC member and support our mission to grow the live music economy of Central Iowa. You also get sweet perks like free access to the Lagunitas Couchtrippin Lounge at 80/35 and the first crack at 80/35 discount and VIP tickets. Plus – your gift will make Des Moines rock!



There are two options to donate:

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

Note: On the donation form, simply click on “Show my support by making this a recurring donation” and select when you’d like your contribution to begin!

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
  • Access to Lagunitas Couchtrippin Lounge at 80/35
  • First opportunity for volunteer positions at DMMC events
  • Subscription to DMMC e-newsletter
  • Happiness that can only come from helping Des Moines rock!


Monthly contribution: $10/month

Yearly contribution: $100/year

Two tickets to either Little BIG Fest or Gross Domestic Product


Monthly contribution: $45/month

All Front Row & Backstage benefits plus: 2 VIP tickets to 80/35


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.



“The scene for Iowa and Des Moines is coming together because of you guys!”
