Music festival in Baghdad

Dressed-up Iraqi women stand alongside a Volkswagen Beetle classic car during the annual Baghdad Summer Festival at the People’s Hall in the Iraqi capital on August 16, 2019. The party started at noon with a car show: classic cars, souped-up four-wheelers and motorcycles with proud owners revving their engines. As the DJ took the stage, boys and girls alike swayed and sang along to Western tunes, alternated with popular Iraqi hits.
