The Zebra Music Festival concluded Sunday evening with a sea of tired but happy festivalgoers.
With a reported turnout in the tens of thousands, we're declaring the festival a milestone event for Chengdu and a general success for the contemporary culture and arts scenes in the region.
We wrap up our reportage of the event with a few more photos of the last two days.
By the second and third days, the crowd was showing more energy than it had on the first. Although the photo pit was too big for stage-divers to hurtle themselves across, crowd surfers managed to ride the sea of thousands of onlookers. Photo by Dan Sandoval.
A samba drum group made the trek from Beijing to do on-site shooting for "Chengdu, I Love You." The film is meant to raise awareness about the devastation of the May 12, 2008 Wenchuan earthquake and is partly directed by "godfather of Chinese rock" Cui Jian. Photo by Dan Sandoval.
While festival-goers were generally calm and security relatively lax, guards had to push back excited audience members during S.H.E.'s performance. The Taiwanese pop supergroup was the headliner of night 2 and one of the most viewed of all the acts. Photo by Leo Chen.
