Cape Town – South African duo Black Motion are listed on the line-up for Meteor Festival which is being held in Israel from 6 to 8 September 2018 but will not be performing according to their management company, Sprit Motion.
The Israeli festival is set to take place at a venue called Pecan Park and will reportedly include American singer Lana De Rey who has received backlash following her addition to the line-up.
Lana has since defended her upcoming performance.
Black Motion’s management have told Channel24 that they e-mailed the festival’s organisers and stated that they do not want their clients to perform and want to be excluded from the line-up. Channel24 has screengrabs of those e-mails.
Most recently local celebrity Shashi Naidoo made the headlines for pro-Israel comments that received negative pushback from activists.
