Trekking from festival to festival this summer has certainly been exciting, and last weekend's Download 2008 event in Philadelphia, the closing stop of a three-show journey, was certainly no exception. From Iggy Pop and the Stooges' raucous set (during which I had a little run-in with the bouncers while trying to leap onstage) to Sia's poignant performance, Download 2008 closed out on a high note, and here, you can scope pictures from each set courtesy of SPIN.com shutterbug Michelle Lawlor.

Check out the photos arranged by artist below, and be sure to watch a video interview with Sia, in which she details her forthcoming collaboration with Christina Aguilera. Plus: Check back to SPIN.com to view interviews with the likes of Louis XIV, Airborne Toxic Event, and many others.
