The 515 Alive story:

Before the corporate ran, profit generating machine music festivals started spawning in the United States, the American music industry was united by grassroot passionate musicians and performers who wanted to share the magic of their music in a unique show experience. In 2002, the collaboration of enthusiasts in a small state called Iowa, gave birth to an event called 515 Alive, at the heart of the state's capital, Des Moines. Despite its obstacles with being one of America's less populated areas, 515 Alive exploded and grew with the spirit of the unity amongst citywide, statewide, and regional support.

515 Alive began as a block party, and has taken many directions, especially taking strong identity being a symbol of Iowa's electronic music scene. The festival has also been a canvas for urban arts and urban music, breaking barriers between musical styles. But the most important and dominant type of artist that has been the lifeblood of 515 Alive, are specifically the DJ's who have made magic building, creating, and performing on those epic stages that gradually improved, year after year.

2016 continues the next generation of 515 Alive bringing this beloved event with its second 2-day event. Featuring our biggest new headliners, bigger sound systems, massive light & laser shows, and a new breed of enthusiasm from its supporters, The lineup of national & regional headliners, 5 stages and supported by the most influential venues, artists, and promoters in Iowa, the 2015 515 Alive Music Festival will be a weekend you will never forget!

Welcome to the WILDEST weekend in Iowa!
