Dances around the festival “Invasion”

The festival “Invasion” has been cooperating with the Ministry of Defense of Russia for the past five years, but this year many musicians were unhappy with the participation of the military department in the event.

The first who decided to boycott the festival were the participants of the Ukrainian group “Riley Molly”. On his page “VKontakte” pop-punk band explained his action.

“Friends! We were surprised to learn that the Ministry of Defense of Russia will take part in the “Invasion” festival. In this regard, we will not be able to address the event. Where music is, there is no place for weapons. We apologize to all our fans, “- said in the appeal” vulgar Molly. “

In addition to “vulgar Molly”, the groups “Elysium”, “Yorsh”, “Porn Films”, Distemper and “Bird” refused to participate in the festival.

The biggest resonance was caused by the boycott of the “Invasion” of the popular singer Monetochka, who transparently hinted at the reasons for her decision not to perform at the festival.

In her official group “VKontakte” the singer wrote that she “apologizes to everyone who expected to see her this year on” Invasion “, as” her performance is canceled “.

“I’m sorry that I did not warn you before, all the world,” added the Pocket.

Although the publication does not directly state the reason for canceling the speech, the last sentence hints at the singer’s solidarity with the groups that refused to take part in the festival due to the fact that Nashestvie is cooperating with the Ministry of Defense. One of the most famous anti-war songs “DDT” – “Do not Shoot” was attached to the post of Monetochka. However, the composition was later removed from the publication.

Yevgenia Kiseleva, General Director of Multimedia Holding, which is engaged in the organization of “Invasion”, said that the festival is a multi-format event, in which the “exposition of military equipment and armament of the Russian army” is organically integrated. According to her, in the past five years, the display of Russian weapons is a “highlight” of the festival, and the performance of the Russian Knights aerobatic team is one of the most anticipated events of the event
