Last year the headlining musical acts for the Des Moines Arts Festival main stage were announced just a few weeks before the festival, but in 2015 the festival is ahead of the curve, announcing headliners Mat Kearney and Eddie Money for the June 26-28 event in Western Gateway Park.

Kearney will perform on June 26. He's best known for hits like "Breathe in Breathe Out," "Nothing Left to Lose" and "Undeniable." Kearney's fifth album, "Just Kids," came out in February. Money will perform on June 27. He's best known for hits like "Two Tickets to Paradise," "Baby Hold On" and "Take Me Home Tonight."
