Last year Big Love Music Festival promised Sichuan a four-day, multistage music festival in Mianyang over the October Holidays. But not long after the announcement, "heavy rains and security concerns" forced the organizers to declare the festival postponed and its location changed to Chengdu.
Well, now it's baaaaack! Just before the official press conference to be held next Tuesday, the Big Love organizers released a few details: The true Big Love will be held during the Dragon Boat Festival holiday, from June 21 to 24 at the International Intangible Cultural Heritage Exposition Park, which opened last year in June to hold the third Intangible Heritage Festival.
They also released the names of the headliners:
British boygroup heart and chart breakers BLUE, the Taiwanese prisoner-turned-Asian-uberpop star Chyi Chin (齐秦), and local Supergirl and Sichuan Conservatory of Music graduate Tan Weiwei (谭维维 aka Sitar Tan).
The rest of the lineup apparently remains unchanged from the original list of 100 local, national, and international acts each with a 45-minute set, totaling more than 20 concerts over 12 hours a day. Apart from the main (pop) stage, there will be a rock and world-music stage for local, national, and international acts, as well as an electronic-music stage.
The 1.6 sqkm festival grounds are complete with areas for a beer fest, a carnival, performances, exhibitions, creative markets, an "improvisation area," car show and camping grounds with a campfire in the evening and light shows.
Stay tuned to GoChengdoo for more details, which we will release as they are available.
