Glass Animals Revealed As One Of The Headliners At Iowa Music Festival
There is a music festival that happens in Iowa that you may or may not know about. It takes place in a town just southwest of Des Moines and they have pulled in some pretty big artists over the course of its short history. The festival is called Hinterland Music Festival and this year, a pop group with a pretty big hit right now will be headlining day 2 of the festival. Glass Animals will be coming to Iowa in August to Hinterland Music Festival.
Over the past 7 years, St. Charles, Iowa, which is located in Madison County, has hosted a music festival called Hinterland Music Festival. What began in 2015 as a two-day music festival, has grown into four days of artists from around the world performing in the small town of St. Charles.
Major artists to headline Hinterland Music Festival include Willie Nelson in 2016 and Hozier in 2019. The Hinterland Music Festival didn't happen in 2020 (thanks, Rona), but it returned to St. Charles, IA in 2021 as a three-day festival.
