Baghdad bikers dance as parties return to battle-weary city

A biker does a burnout on his motorcycle during a car and motorbike show outside the closed Hall of Shaab Stadium in Baghdad, Iraq August 16, 2019. Members of rival Iraqi biker gangs, clad in studded leather and black berets, burst out of their semi-circles to break dance, their tattoo-covered arms waving neon glowsticks.

Young women dance as they attend an electronic music concert. The scene was a far cry from the usual images broadcast from the city of violence and mayhem. But nearly two years since Iraq declared victory over the Islamic State, the capital has been quietly remaking its image. REUTERS/Thaier Al-Sudani

Young people dance. "We held this party so people can know that Iraq has this kind of culture, and has these kinds of people who love life and music," said Arshad Haybat, a 30-year-old film director who founded the Riot Gear events company.

Young men attend a car and motorbike show. It was a heady mix of Baghdad's burgeoning subcultures: bikers, gamers, EDM enthusiasts. What most had in common was they'd never been to a party like this in Iraq. "We have only ever seen this kind of concert on TV and films," said 21-year-old Mustafa Osama. "I can't describe my feelings to see such a thing in Iraq." REUTERS/Thaier Al-Sudani

Young people dance. Though dominated by young men, lots of women attended, with some dancing near the main stage. But event organizers ensured a "family section" was available, so groups of women, families and couples out on dates could dance, away from the lively crowd. "All the young people are happy here," said Ain, one of the female partygoers who declined to give her last name. "I hope there will be more and more of these events in Iraq."
