BBC Radio 1: Rocking Kabul: Afghanistan stages secretive rock event
It was arranged in secret, dates and venues closely guarded until the day.
But this basement gig, held underneath a veterinary clinic, isn’t in London or New York but in the Afghan capital, Kabul.
The event was part of the city’s first rock festival since the fall of the Taliban and it went ahead despite threats to some of the bands.
“Four or five years ago all this could only have been a dream,” says lead vocalist of District Unknown, Kassim.
