Acts continue to drop out of Latitude 2024 over their sponsorship by Barclays, following a huge boycott of The Great Escape.

Let’s leave it to Mui Zyu to explain: “The festival is sponsored by Barclays who are continuing to profit from the genocide in Palestine… Barclays are on the BDS Movement’s boycott list. Throughout the last six months they have continued to increase their financing to companies making weapons that are then used on Gaza where at this moment over 37,000 people have been killed and over 82,000 people injured (many of whom are children).”

“As a small artist this may not have much impact on the festival, but if others join it can. If you are planning to attend the festival please consider using your voice as a customer to speak out against your money going towards a genocide.”

“Follow Bands Boycott Barclays who are leading this movement. Familiarise yourself with the BDS Movement, and the Palestine Solidarity Campaign.”
