ABOUT LITTLE BIG FEST
Little BIG Fest is an annual festival featuring roots, country, singer-songwriter, bluegrass, jam, world, blues, jazz, and soul music. As with all DMMC events, local artists are heavily featured, though artists from around the U.S. also perform at the festival. In addition to the 11 committee-selected bands, there is also a Community-Selected Artist that was determined from an online public poll. 

LBF is organized by the nonprofit the Greater Des Moines Music Coalition (DMMC). LBF 2016 is made possible with the support of The Traveler Beer Co., Tallgrass Brewing Co., The Greater Des Moines Partnership, Bravo Greater Des Moines, Saturday Mfg., VolunteerLocal, Wooly’s, and KFMG 98.9 FM.
