Why Des Moines’ music scene could be big this fall


Axios Des Moines: Global supply-and-demand problems are extending to the music industry and even our favorite artists are being turned away from big-city venues as entertainers reschedule postponed shows from last year. If coveted weekend spots are called for at Midwest venues in Minneapolis, Chicago, Kansas City or Detroit — well, Des Moines just might be the next best thing. Touring is expected to resume this fall, and more artists are deciding at the last minute that they want to schedule shows, said Sam Summers, owner of Wooly’s and First Fleet Concerts. That could play to Des Moines’ advantage. “I just think it’s going to be a really, really good fall for Des Moines,” Summers said. In the long term, he hopes the pent-up demand for shows will reflect in ticket sales, which will make Des Moines an easier sell to managers and agents in the future.
