You know that music festivals are becoming painfully trendy when they start popping up in places like Iowa. (No offense, Farmer Chris and the rest of you flyover state folks.) Though Des Moines, IA, seems like an odd choice for Hinterland Music Festival’s inaugural year, I guess a state full of flat land and open fields makes for perfect camping, dancing, and the general construction that goes into such affairs.

Billed as a festival “curated for Midwesterners who love both urban settings and the outdoors,” Hinterland’s lineup includes Old Crow Medicine Show, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros (minus Jane, so who even cares?), Brandi Carlile, TV on the Radio, Future Islands, Yonder Mountain String Band, St. Paul & the Broken Bones, Lucius, and Joe Pug. The rest is still TBA. Tickets go on sale today, starting at $75 for basic 2-day passes. Check back for more info on this brand spankin’ new festival as it unfolds.

Where to Stay at Hinterland Music Festival

The festival organizers are still working on securing onsite camping locations, but say “nothing has been finalized just yet” and they are oping to have an answer by mid-March. For those who would like to stay in a hotel for the weekend, the Des Lux and Embassy Suites are close by.
