Raging rallies were held by Democratic Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt in Iowa to gain support for his presidential campaign the week leading up to the Iowa Caucus. The rallies resembled a music festival complete with beer, live music, and a multitude of millennials. The event even gained a festival-inspired nickname ‘Bernchella.’ Bon Iver, Vampire Weekend and a variety of other musicians performed to show their support.
