The 9th Annual Gross Domestic Product has been scheduled for Saturday, April 12th in the East Village. Main stages will be held at Wooly’s and House of Bricks, with performances and pop-up shows happening in other spaces throughout the neighborhood. Between 15-20 local musical artists will perform; three of those spots will be selected through an online public survey, which you can complete on this very page! By asking the music-loving community of Des Moines to be a part of the conversation and decision-making process, we hope to create a local music event that represents the musical tastes of the city.

Gross Domestic Product specifically aims to highlight those original artists in our community who are working to promote their music through recordings, music videos, online marketing, touring, and more, and have been particularly active in the last year.

The survey will close at 5pm CST on Friday, February 28th. Attend Backstage Ball on Friday night to be the first to hear the full lineup!
