The Turkvizyon Song Contest 2015 looks to now be taking place in Istanbul, Turkey after a tweet from the Turkish channel behind the competition. The competition was announced as being held in Mary, Turkmenistan last November at the 2014 Turkvizyon Song Contest, but was then announced by TMB TV in February to have moved to the Turkmen capital Ashgabat. Today TMB TV has released the following tweet:

  1. At vk.com I translated the following in Google Translate:

    “Мары и останется столицей тюркского мира этого года, но конкурс там не состоится. Еще в феврале было объявлено, что, возможно, конкурс пройдет в туркменской столице Ашхабаде. Но ТМБ ТВ теперь опубликовал следующий твит, т.к. Туркменистан не принимает. Все возмущены, но против власти не попрешь.”

    It says something like the Turkmen gouverment is outraged, but I am not sure if it is because of the decision to move it from Mary to Ashkabad or the decision to move it from Ashkabad to Istanbul. Could you try investigate a bit around this? If the Turkmens are outraged, it’s interesting. Maybe they withdraw, etc.
