Singer had been pressured to cancel show most Palestinians would not be allowed to watch
Lana Del Rey has pulled out of a music festival in Israel next week in the wake of a backlash over her decision to perform.
The American singer was to have been one of the headline performers at the Meteor festival from 6 to 8 September. It is being held on a kibbutz in northern Israel that most Palestinians would not be permitted to attend.
Thank you @LanaDelRey for your principled decision to withdraw from Israel’s Meteor Festival.
Palestinians hope to hear you play when Israel’s occupation and apartheid end.
We urge all participating artists in the festival to respect our nonviolent picket line. https://t.co/8T4iMunqhd
