"TiK ToK" wrapped up this year's 80/35 after a performance filled with confetti, profanities and female empowerment.

Some "animals," as Kesha affectionately calls her fans, waited for hours at the railing of the Hy-Vee Stage, many of whom were decked out in glitter and feathers, catching indie rock acts Courtney Barnett and Car Seat Head Rest along the way.

Once Kesha began her set at 9:15 p.m., the stage, which had simplistic set-ups throughout the day, transformed into something a little more in the style of the glittery, colorful pop singer, featuring a spaceship at the center.

Kesha did not hold back on the profanities, emerging on stage with middle finger blazing to her opening song "Woman."

The media was not allowed to photograph Kesha unless they agreed to the condition that her staff be able to review the photos ahead of publication — a condition the Register could not agree to, ethically. So instead, here is a peek into Kesha's 80/35 performance from the social media accounts of those who were there:
