Afghanistan: First Rock-Festival in 30 Years

Hundreds of lucky Afghans attend a secret rock music festival in Kabul — the first live music concert in Afghanistan since the 1970s.

Organisers hope rock festival could inspire Afghans to pick up guitars instead of guns.

Shrouded in secrecy and security to avoid attacks, the Sound Central festival showcased local Afghan bands alongside fellow musicians from Iran, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and even Australia, offering a welcome distraction for music-hungry young people in a country shattered by violence.
