A Spanish band that performed at a renowned Hungarian international music festival has been banished from participating again after publishing a video of its members defacing an Israeli flag at the event.
The Sziget Music Festival said in a statement that it condemns the action by hip-hop group Tribade as against the spirit of the annual event.
“The actions of the group Tribade are against our cherished values of welcome and respect and we deeply condemn this hateful stunt,” the statement said.
“They will, of course, not be invited back to our festivals in the future,” the festival said of Tribade.
The three-member female rap group uploaded videos Sunday of their concert at the festival to their Instagram story, followed by a video of them writing statements against the State of Israel and in support of the Palestinians on an Israeli flag.
