Chengdu's been a city China's music-festival organizers and promoters have been eyeing for some time. But the success of last May's Zebra Music Festival seems to have encouraged others to follow suit, namely the Dream Festival last month and the will-they-or-won't-they game of the mother of all music festivals, Midi, finally ending in an apparent "they won't" (at least for this year), Rock Aid Sichuan brings a one-day mini festival to Chengdu's 24 City.
All proceeds will benefit the Number 1 & 2 Primary Schools in Deyang (Jinshan Town, Luojiang County).
