Information about artist cancellations


The artists Abu Hajar, Emel Mathlouthi, Islam Chipsy & EEK, and Hello Psychaleppo have cancelled their performances at Pop-Kultur 2017 due to the partnership of the Israeli Embassy with the festival. The Israeli Embassy partly contributes to the travel expenses for artists performing at the festival.

Pop-Kultur offers a platform for artists from different territories across the world, regardless of religion or culture, encouraging exchange beyond all borders. Partners and sponsors of Pop-Kultur do not have any influence on the programming of the festival. Therefore we regret the cancellations of the artists above.

An extended statement about the issue is available right here.

UPDATE 23.08.17
The following artists won’t be part of the festival: Abu Hajar, Annie Goh, Emel Mathlouthi, Hello Psychaleppo, Iklan featuring Law Holt, Islam Chipsy & EEK, Oranssi Pazuzu and Young Fathers.  

The complete programme of Pop-Kultur 2017 can be found right here.
