The 80/35 festival gets its name from the two major interstates that meet at Des Moines, Iowa. Since 2008, this multi-day music event draws about 30,000 fans annually has attracted big acts such as the Flaming Lips, Dinosaur Jr., Girl Talk, and Modest Mouse.

This year, it also attracted a photography drone.

Posted on 80/35s Facebook page are at least two aerial photos obtained by a small multirotor drone. These shots were made by photographer and graphic designer Stefan Hansen.

This news came to me by way of friend Joe Copley, a music aficionado and graphic designer for the Illinois Times alternative newsweekly in Springfield, Illinois.
