The metal band had been scheduled to perform at FortaRock this June.
Phil Anselmo drew a wave of criticism when he did a Nazi salute and yelled "white power" onstage at Jan. 22’s "Dimebag" Darrell tribute concert. After being called out by the likes of Machine Head frontman Robb Flynn and others, he has now been hit with a very real consequence.
Anselmo’s band Down has been axed from the Dutch music festival FortaRock.
“There has been close consultation between all parties recent days, since we wanted to make a well informed decision,” FortaRock announced on its official website. “On that basis, the decision is made to cancel the act. We want to make clear that there is no room for racism or fascism on FortaRock.”
