Stay Grizzly - Grizzly Fest 2017


Michael Behlen's Stay Grizzly is an analog look into the annual Grizzly Fest event held at Chukchansi Park in Fresno, California. It is a one-day, hyper-local, music and arts festival that celebrates the diverse culture of Behlen's hometown. In addition to the local talent gracing the stage, event manager Aren Hekimian and promoter Aaron Gomes (Sound and Vision Foundation) brought national talent such as E-40, Dr. Dog, Lupe Fiasco, and Rebelution to the four stages placed around the stadium.

Shot on a Polaroid Type 660 AF Camera and Impossible Project Black and White Film, Behlen's series brings Grizzly Fest 2017 to life with his live performance and portrait images of the musicians that performed. Limited to just 50 copies, this photobook is one you want in your collection!

Artists included in this zine: Amoret, Eighteen Hundreds, Thee Commons, Call Me James, Fashawn, Omotola, Dilated Peoples, Sagey, The Faculty, and Mary Denise.
