This one is just in: Xinhuanet has published a review (it’s a three-piece) of the InMusic Festival 2010 stating some impressive but unbelievable figures:
- more than 150,000 people were here last August (the 2009 festival)
- Nearly 1,000 security workers, including police officers, firefighters and civil servants, kept a watchful eye on the excited crowds.
- Online news reports on the 2009 festival received “30 million viewings”
- County’s service industry grossed more than 12 million yuan
Doesn’t really fit to the one remark I saw at CMR: “5-6000 audience tops“
