Global Bands are Pulling Out of SXSW in Solidarity With Palestine

Artists and bands from all over the world - including Kneecap and Sprints, Lambrini Girls, Scowl, Gel, Okay Shalom and Squirrelflower - have joined a growing list of acts that have pulled out of the South By Southwest (SXSW) Festival in solidarity with Palestine.

These withdrawals are part of a broader movement within the music industry, denouncing the festival's ties to the US Army and defence contractors, and collectively condemning the profiteering of war.

SXSW (South By Southwest) is an annual music, film, and interactive media festival in Austin, Texas. It is one of the largest and most influential gatherings of its kind, attracting artists, industry professionals, and fans worldwide.
