Music for Soma

Following the Soma mine disaster in Turkey, the organisers of Babylon Soundgarden decided to turn the festival into a benefit to aid the families of those lost in the tragedy. Pet Shop Boys, who are performing and headlining at Babylon Soundgarden in Istanbul today, fully support this decision which will now see all ticket income sent to those most in need. Numerous other festivals in Turkey will also be doing the same over the coming months.
