According to the organizers from Montenegro, the cancellation of a performance due to the artist's nationality is discrimination and contradicts the “values of the festival “. After that, a group from Ukraine refused to take part in Sea Dance.
On August 8, the Kalush Orchestra group demanded that the organizers of the Sea Dance festival in Montenegro remove Russian DJ Nina Kravitz from the lineup. However, the organizers of the musical event refused to do so, emphasizing that any cancellation of an artist's performance due to their nationality was contrary to Sea Dance's values. This was reported on the official website of the festival.
“We know very well what wars bring with them and that innocent people always suffer the most in them. The Sea Dance Festival sympathizes with all the victims of war and condemns the Russian invasion and the suffering taking place in Ukraine, as well as anywhere in the world, but the cancellation of the performance any performer solely on the basis of his nationality, race or religion is contrary to the values that Sea Dance stands for,” the organizers said in a statement.
It was also noted here that Nina Kravitz is a longtime friend of the festival, and the organizers are sure that the DJ is “not on the side of war and suffering, but on the side of peace and unity.”
“This is one of the reasons why we have been collaborating all these years and why we believe that the Russian star has a place on the stage of the Sea Dance Festival,” the site states.
After that , as the organizers released their official statement, Kalush Orchestra refused to take part in the festival.
“Unfortunately, we did not manage to fuse the Russian DJ from the festival on the 28th in Montenegro, so keep in mind we are there won't,” the band commented on their decision in their Instagram Stories.
Sea Dance Festival is an electronic and pop music festival that will take place from 26 to 28 August in Budva, Montenegro. Kalush Orchestra planned to perform on the last day of the musical event.
