In Solidarity With
Le Guess Who? stands for unity through music. The global violence unfolding against innocent people at the moment is truly heartbreaking, and our hearts go out to those affected, whether in Palestine, Ukraine, Israel, Sudan, or anywhere else.
As an organization, we condemn violence against civilians and stand in solidarity with those living under occupation in Palestine in terrible conditions for far too long. This is a crisis that is unjustifiable.
Among those affected is the artist Al Nather, who due to the ongoing violence, and precarity in which it places him, has to cancel his performance at Le Guess Who?. We will not replace him at the festival, as we wish to respect the circumstances with the authenticity and honesty the situation deserves.
