Chengdu Big Love Festival in Photos and Videos
Mongolian band Haya perform on the Big Dream stage on June 23 at the Big Love Music Festival in Chengdu, China.
The Big Love Music Festival (成都大爱音乐节)was held from June 21 to 24 in Chengdu, capital of southwest China's Sichuan province. The festival lost a reported RMB50 million, but at least it went down pretty spectacularly. In case you missed it, GoChengdoo was on the grounds daily to gather this collection of photos.
