“We’re looking for this festival to have a different vibe,” says Glenn Lyons, President & CEO of the Downtown Community Alliance, “The Singer Songwriter Music Festival will have reserved seating, a departure from the general admission standing room only format you’ll find at the Americana Music Festival at the end of June.”

Music Under the Canopy is a series of weekend summer festivals at Brenton Skating Plaza in Downtown DSM on June 20-22 (Americana), July 11-13 (Singer-Songwriter) and August 1-3 (Jazz). The series will be the first set of concerts taking place under a one-of-a-kind canopy that was installed at Brenton Skating Plaza in May.

Music Under the Canopy series sponsors include Doll Craft Specialties, DuPont Pioneer, MidAmerican Energy Company, Operation Downtown, and The Principal Financial Group. The Media Partners are ALT 1063, Iowa Public Radio, KFMG 99.1 FM, MORE 104 and 100.3 The Bus.
