The open air concert "Music Against Torture!" was held in Stefan cel Mare park in central Chisinau. From 6pm onwards local bands, including Street Symphony, Experience Band and Sweet Mama's Mojo Juice, took to the makeshift stage, which was setup on top of a bridge over one of the park's fountains.

The event was funded by the United Nations Development Program, and was dedicated to the campaign activities to support UN International Day of Victims of Torture - 26 June.
