SAVING GRACE FT. ROBERT PLANT & SUZI DIAN CANCEL

Today G! Festival must announce the cancelation of Saving Grace ft. Robert Plant & Suzi Dian. The band was scheduled to perform Saturday, July 18th, but have now pulled out, due to Robert Plant receiving negative publicity / pressure from environmental conservation organization Blue Planet Society concerning the Faroese pilot whale drive known as the “grind”.
 
Managing director at G! Festival, Sigvør Laksá, comments: “We’re disappointed and annoyed with the cancelation. We’ve been excited and happy with the massive interest and the positive reception to the announcement of Saving Grace, especially the Robert Plant fever that naturally comes with it”.
 
Sigvør Laksá also says that: “It seems somewhat unprofessional for these acts to pull out of a booking without any prior notice or attempt at constructive dialogue, which might have allowed us to address the artist’s concerns.It also appears contradictory when an artist is happy to play in countries like Norway and Iceland [which carry out commercial whaling], which Mr. Plant has done in the past, even in 2019”.
 
Sigvør Laksá concludes: “This is a severe blow for the festival, which forces us to rethink our approach in producing the G! Festival”.
 
For a ticket refund (applies to customers buying tickets after the announcement of Saving Grace), please write an email to info@gfestival.com within seven days.
