Rockerjocker concert in Poznan cancelled


The local authorities
decided to stop financing the festival under their influence. It happened after
the Poles had found out about the Rockerjoker song "Sanya
Stays with Us" which, according to their information, "became an
anthem of Alyaksandr Lukashenka's presidential campaign".

On October 10 the musicians
officially announced that they did not cooperate with the Belarusian
authorities and that their song was used in the presidential campaign without
their consent. However, this did not help.

Organizers of the Belarus
culture days have not commented on the decision of the Poznan authorities so
far. They only admit that it is too late to include amendments in the concert
so it should be cancelled.
