Little BIG Fest is an annual festival featuring roots, 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 of eight different acts.

The Des Moines Music Coalition is a non-profit organization committed to building a stronger and more diverse music community in greater Des Moines. Our mission is to aggressively advocate, sponsor, and develop an independent, progressive live music community for the purpose of urban revitalization, regional economic development, and the retention of our region’s youth and future.
