AND THE BANDS PLAYED ON: It could have been so much worse, of course; if the two bombers had made it into the festival itself, rather than sixteen deaths at a Russian rock festival, we could be talking about hundreds. Unsettlingly, the bands had to carry on playing to avoid "panic". We're not sure if we'd feel calmed by a set from B2 or Spleen when more than a dozen people were laying in pieces by the exit; we're not sure how you'd play a set in those circumstances.
