A new festival is launching in central Iowa this summer with one major goal in mind: highlighting the state’s homegrown talent. Coined “IowaStock 2017 Music and Art Fair,” the four-day, multi-stage event is set to take place Sept. 1-4 at the Avenue of the Saints Amphitheater in St. Charles, roughly 30 miles south of Des Moines.
The all-Iowa concert, curated by John Narcisse, plans to boast more than 60 acts throughout the Labor Day weekend. Bringing in acts from the Missouri to Mississippi rivers, Narcisse said performers such as Joe & Vicki Price, Bob Dorr & the Blue Band, Dave Zollo, Christopher the Conquered, Beatles tribute Rocky Raccoon & the NOLA Jazz Band are included in the lineup.
Iowa raised opera singer Simon Estes is set to appear at the festival Sept. 3 & 4, Narcisse said. The renowned singer is scheduled to perform Sept. 3 as part of an opera showcase & lead a lecture the following day. “It’s going to be the best music you can hear in one gathering in Iowa, period,” Narcisse said. “Hands down.”
Four-day early bird tickets to IowaStock cost $50, a one-day pass costs $20 &a four-night camping pass costs $300. All IowaStock tickets are for sale via tikly.com.
