The 12th Annual Gross Domestic Product (GDP) festival is scheduled for Saturday, April 29th on 4th Street in downtown Des Moines! The main stage will be at Vaudeville Mews with performances and pop-up shows hosted in other spaces throughout the neighborhood. Up to 20 local artists will perform and three of these spots will be selected by the community through an online survey!
For GDP 2017, our goal is to highlight local talent by booking some of Iowa’s most promising up-and-coming artists. We also promise to continue increasing diversity in our lineup and to honor Iowa’s artists through a 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 Friday, February 10th. The selected artists, along with the full lineup for Gross Domestic Product, will be announced at the Des Moines Music Coalition’s Backstage Ball on Friday, February 24th.
