Organizers behind the 11th incarnation of Des Moines’ 80/35 music festival, taking place July 6 and 7, released the names of their headlining acts on Tuesday morning.

Pop star Kesha and electronic duo Phantogram will top a bill of more than 40 artists, to be announced in early spring.

The line-up also includes Australian singer/songwriter Courtney Barnett, Minneapolis hip-hop group Atmosphere (active since 1989) and indie rock band Car Seat Headrest.

The 2018 80/35 festival will take place in downtown Des Moines’ Western Gateway Park. Tickets are on sale now, priced at $75 for a two-day general admission pass and $195 for a two-day VIP pass, which includes access to a shaeded lounge area by the Main Stage, air-conditioned bathrooms, and food and drink discounts and vouchers.

80/35 is produced by the Des Moines Music Coalition, a non-profit working to diversify the music scene and “enhance music tourism” in Des Moines. They also host after-school programs, summer camps and conferences designed to connect and provide resources for local musicians.
