Snoop Dogg has been banned from performing at a free concert taking place at The Hague in the Netherlands next weekend.
Snoop Dogg was slated to play at the Parkpop festival on June 27th, but a coalition of police and justice ministry officials led by the Mayor of the Dutch city of Hague are protesting the rapper’s appearance.
Police have asked organizers to find a suitable replacement for Snoop Dogg with just ten-days left until the concert takes place.
“This is all very annoying that the headliner is being removed from the programme 10 days before the event,” a spokeswoman for organizer Ducos Productions told ANP-Reuters.
According to the Mayor, Snoop has been banned in order to maintain the “open and friendly atmosphere” of the family-oriented festival.
Other performers slated to hit the stage during Parkpop include Nick Lowe, Alphabeat and Nena.
