Open Poll for GDP 2016 Community-Selected Artists

The 11th Annual Gross Domestic Product (GDP) festival is scheduled for Saturday, May 28th in the East Village! The main stage will be at Wooly’s with performances and pop-up shows hosted in other spaces throughout the neighborhood. Fourteen local artists will perform and two of these spots will be selected through an online survey! For GDP 2016, our goals are to increase the diversity of genres in our lineup and to be a more grassroots, community-run event. By asking the music-loving community of Des Moines to be a part of the decision-making process, we hope to create a local music event that truly represents the musical talent and tastes of our city.

The survey will close at 5pm CST on Thursday, February 25th. The selected artist, along with the full lineup for Gross Domestic Product, will be announced at the Des Moines Music Coalition’s Backstage Ball on Friday, February 26th.
