Well they did it again. An outfit called Sound Central has produced their second annual music festival in Kabul. Wow! I remember last year it was a little rough around the edges. Not too many bands. Turnout was so-so. Low budget, that sort of thing. This year it seems to be on the map. Over 30 bands. A women's only day. 2600 people attended. They did a live feed. Their FB page had 22,000 results, twitter was over 25,000. People are saying it is something that central Asia needed. I have never heard anyone refer to Afghanistan as "central Asia" before. Safety is still a concern and the festival people confidently say it's safe. Their website looks real downtown as well. It seems to be an October event so put a watch on your calender for next year.
