Photos: A weekend of great music at Grey Area


The crowd takes advantage of the sprawling terrain on the second day of Grey Area. Saturday, Aug. 19, 2017. — photo by Zak Neumann.

The first ever Grey Area festival has come and gone. Hosted by White Rabbit and Flat Black Studios on the land surrounding the studio, Grey Area lies somewhere between a traditional festival and a bring-your-own-refreshments farm party. Festival goers were treated to sets from nineteen bands that have recorded material at Flat Black Studios, aerial acrobats, fire spinners and DJ sets, along with plenty of cold beer and space to stretch out and take in all the sights and sounds.

Very cool shots. Where was this exactly? What kind of attendance was there?

This was at the inaugural Grey Area festival, this past weekend at Flat Black Studios, which is a rural destination recording studio in Lone Tree, Iowa. They did a great job! Probably had about 500-700 including kids and people coming in and out over the course of the weekend.
