The Black Madonna dropped off the lineup of Intersect festival back in October after learning that Amazon Web Services was sponsoring the festival, releasing a statement that read, "I will not be performing at Intersect Festival due to their relationship with Amazon Web Services who have business ties with ICE and Homeland Security." The Las Vegas festival is scheduled to happen next weekend, on Friday, December 6 and Saturday, December 7, and another artist has left the lineup: JPEGMAFIA. While neither he nor the festival released a statement giving a reason his departure, he's no longer listed on the lineup or schedule, after being added to it in mid-October.
Over 1000 artists signed an open letter pledging not to participate in Amazon-sponsored festivals or partnerships while the company supports "human rights violations through its contracts with ICE and other US government agencies." More recently, artists have begun having their music pulled from Amazon ahead of the holiday season.
Meanwhile, JPEGMAFIA remains on the lineup for MTV's Snowglobe Music Festival, which happens in South Lake Tahoe, CA on December 29-December 31. In 2020, he heads overseas for dates in the UK and Europe. See all of his upcoming dates below.
