GDP Band Hype: Media Fresh

Media Fresh is one of the most active organizations in the Des Moines music scene. From the FreshenUP series to their recent announcement of Iowa’s first Hip Hop Festival, Fresh Fest, the group has been focused and intent on making their presence known. Now, Media Fresh looks to put hip-hop culture front and center at this year’s Gross Domestic Product festival.

In a city where music is said to be at the forefront of the arts and entertainment culture, hip-hop still seems to play the role of the underdog. Media Fresh is working to change that. They don’t just present music; Media Fresh presents culture in its honest form. It’s that passion that has us paying attention.

Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is an all Iowa music festival held every spring, featuring musical artists from Greater Des Moines and the rest of Iowa. The 11th annual Gross Domestic Product will take place on May 28th, 2016 at venues around the East Village in Des Moines, Iowa! See the full line-up and details here. Gross Domestic Product highlights some of the original songwriters, performers, and recording artists in our community who make Iowa proud! GDP focuses primarily on young, new artists, those who are taking their first steps into creative self-expression through music and doing so in a positive, collaborative way. Each year we highlight a selection of new artists that our community has to offer, along with a few established groups that have had success building careers while living and working in the state we call home.

Established in spring 2006, GDP has featured over 100 musical acts, including House of Large Sizes, The Envy Corps, The Poison Control Center, Christopher the Conquered, Mumford’s, Facecage, and many more.
