IPR's 80/35 Live Session stage will host 20 bands for free sets this weekend at 80/35 including two exclusive sets from Ellisa Sun and the Surf Zombies.

We'll feature nearly 20 bands this weekend at 80/35 on our IPR Live Sessions free stage including nationally touring acts And The Kids, Dessa, The Harmaleighs, and Lissie.

We've also got three exclusive sets happening. 

On Friday, Quad Cities based band Condor and Jaybird will play at 6:00 p.m. They bill themselves as a psych-pop band that's sure to make you want to dance. 

Ellisa Sun, a soulful jazz singer from California on her first national tour, plays the IPR stage at 12:45 on Saturday, and Cedar Rapids based Surf Zombies will play a reverb-soaked surf rock set at 8:15 the same day. 

To help you plan which sets you want to make it a point to be there for this weekend, we've created a playlist with some of our favorite songs from the bands playing our stage. Join us for a chance to see stripped down sets, perfect for all the Serious Music People attending the fest.
