Little BIG Fest is sure to be a rootsy, jammy good time on Saturday, November 17 for the 7th annual festival. Hosted by the Greater Des Moines Music Coalition (DMMC), this festival showcases local and regional bands in the genres of roots, jam, blues, bluegrass, folk, alt-county and acoustic.
This yearâ€™s Little BIG Fest will be taking place in the East Village, with stages at both Woolyâ€™s (504 East Locust Street, Des Moines, IA 50309) and House of Bricks (525 East Grand Avenue, Des Moines, IA 50309). In addition, we are excited to announce a third, free stage added to this yearâ€™s festivities which will be located at The Underground (500 East Locust Street, Des Moines, IA 50309) and will feature three acts from 8pm-12am.
Not only did we add a third stage, but weâ€™ve also added some great acts to this yearâ€™s lineup. Be sure to check out the dubstep beats of SUBliminal Chaos and Little BIG Fest veterans Rebel Creek. Best of Fools and Obsidianâ€™s Dream will keep you jamming and on your feet, while The Colt Walkers showcase roots and blues, and Aquamarine Dream Machine gets things psychedelic.
