NPR Tiny Desk contest entries from Iowa to play Iowa Public Radio’s 80/35 Stage
One Iowa-based entrant to NPR’s Tiny Desk Contest will be offered a slot on IPR’s 80/35 stage during the music festival on July 10-11, Iowa Public Radio announced last week. The Tiny Desk Contest is accepting entries until March 30. IPR Studio One hosts Mark Simmet, Tony Dehner and Cece Mitchell will collaborate with Des Moines Music Coalition Executive Director Jarin Hart to narrow down the top three videos submitted to NPR’s Tiny Desk Contest from Iowa. Those videos will be posted to www.iowapublicradio.org, where the community will vote on a winning choice. The video with the most votes will get to play Iowa Public Radio’s stage at 80/35 this summer. More information on entering NPR’s Tiny Desk Contest is available at https://tinydeskcontest.npr.org/2020/open/.
