SB 11.6.1
sri-suka uvaca
atha brahmatma-jaih devaih
 prajesair avrto ’bhyagat
bhavas ca bhuta-bhavyeso
 yayau bhuta-ganair vrtah

Sri Sukadeva Gosvami said: Lord Brahma then set off for Dvaraka, accompanied by his own sons as well as by the demigods and the great Prajapatis. Lord Siva, the bestower of auspiciousness to all living beings, also went, surrounded by many ghostly creatures.

SB 11.6.2-4
indro marudbhir bhagavan
 aditya vasavo ’svinau
rbhavo ’ngiraso rudra
 visve sadhyas ca devatah
gandharvapsaraso nagah
rsayah pitaras caiva
dvarakam upasaƱjagmuh
 sarve krsna-didrksavah
vapusa yena bhagavan
yaso vitene lokesu

The powerful Lord Indra, along with the Maruts, Adityas, Vasus, Asvinis, Rbhus, Angiras, Rudras, Visvedevas, Sadhyas, Gandharvas, Apsaras, Nagas, Siddhas, Caranas, Guhyakas, the great sages and forefathers and the Vidyadharas and Kinnaras, arrived at the city of Dvaraka, hoping to see Lord Krsna. By His transcendental form, Krsna, the Supreme Lord, enchanted all human beings and spread His own fame throughout the worlds. The Lord’s glories destroy all contamination within the universe.

The Personality of Godhead descends within the material world to assist the demigods in the cosmic management; thus the demigods can normally see such forms of the Lord as Upendra. However, here it is indicated that although accustomed to seeing various Visnu expansions of the Lord, the demigods were specifically eager to see the most beautiful form of the Lord as Krsna. Deha-dehi-vibhagas ca nesvare vidyate kvacit: there is no distinction between the Supreme Lord and His personal body. The jiva soul is different from his body, but the beautiful, transcendental form of the Lord is identical with the Lord in all respects.
