A woman who attended a music concert for singles on Tuesday night in Nanning, capital of the Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region, said meeting like-minded people is the most important part of dating.

"I'm a music enthusiast, and this concert, combined with the singles' activities, makes me very excited," she said, adding that those attending the concert all loved music, making it easier to communicate.

The "Love in Nanning" event was held ahead of Thursday's Sanyuesan Festival, a traditional festival of the Zhuang ethnic group that is held on the third day of the third month in the Chinese lunar calendar.

Singers and bands performed classic love songs at the concert to create a romantic atmosphere for single men and women.

The concert opened with the song Love ING as a soundtrack for mixing activities and climaxed with a bonfire around which nearly 1,000 people danced.

Social media platforms helped spread word of the event, which was repeated on Wednesday and Thursday.

Concerts are also planned every Saturday, with tickets for available shows already sold out.

"In addition to the single men and women participating in the event, all the staff members on the stage are also single, making it a true singles party," said Zhang Chao, the concert's director, adding that he hopes participants enjoy the music and find romance.

To ensure all participants are single, the information they provide when registering, including their name and ID number, is sent to the civil affairs bureau for verification.
