The Tbilisi Jam Fest in Georgia (the country, not the state) was apparently shut down last night by religious protesters. The Ukraine-based band Jinjer comments:
"Well, friends, there is some bad news worth sharing!!! For the first time over several years Jinjer's performance was cancelled today due to the attack by religious fanatics. Tbilisi JAM Fest was disrupted because the monastery not far away (about 1 km away) didn't like it, the priests brought an angry crowd of believers and assaulted the festival area!!!
"Even though the festival had all necessary permissions by local authorities, the fanatics just cut off the electricity. The most shocking was that the police was just standing aside and watching... It is sad to realize that in Georgia, the country which seemed to be civilized, RELIGION has MORE POWER than the LAW.
"We really hope that the orginizers will be able to find an alternative location and JINJER will be albe to play tomorrow before we fly back to Ukraine."
The show is apparently being rescheduled for tonight, however, with the organizers of the festival posting this message online: "Tbilisi JAM! Fest 2016 WILL be held tonight! Preventive measures (during preparational period) make us reveal the location a bit later. Get ready to have fun and lots of good music!" More...
