On July 5, 2003, the fourth festival Wings (Kryl’ya) was held in Moscow at the airfield in Tushino.

Blown up suicide bombers moved from the subway station in the direction of the festival box office near main entrance. The blast killed 15 people and many were injured.

To avoid a panic and possible crush of people – the festival organizers did not stop the concert. And many viewers learned about the explosion after show from the news.
