It certainly takes a community that shares the same passion for live music as we do in the DMMC to put on full-scale events like 80/35 and other musical happenings like GDP, Little Big Fest, Music University, Youth Music Education, and more.  If you’re interested in volunteering just simply click HERE and you will be added to our volunteer newsletter, which will include plenty of great perks and festival experiences!

“I’m honoured to volunteer with Greater Des Moines Music Coalition! The DMMC has changed my life in many ways and I love volunteering with them! Get involved, this is a key organization to the present and future of Iowa music!”  -Nate Logsdon, leader of Iowa band Mumford’s and co-director of Maximum Ames Music Festival

The efforts of the DMMC are made possible by volunteers committed to growing the progressive live music scene in Greater Des Moines. We are always looking for more people to get involved! Everything we do is a reflection of what our volunteers (i.e., you) care about. All of our meetings are open to the public, so join us for an upcoming meeting or contact us to learn how you can get involved.
