It is sponsored by Iranian private sector, he said, adding the tickets would be sold on Wednesday by Iran Concert Website.

The event has been warmly welcomed by women.

The groups which are to take part in the music festival include, "Avaye Mehrbani" (Sound of Kindness), Kereshmeh (Coquetry), "Avaze Melal" (Song of Countries), "Moshtaqe Shiraz" (Avid for Shirza), "Bouye Gandom" (Smell of Wheat), "Setareh Qotbi" (Polaris), "Dadmehr", "Canary", "Daryaye Raz" (Sea of Mystery), "Chakavake Azad" (Free Lark) and Khonya.
