That’s what Fresku said on Monday evening in the NOS News. “The past two years have been very difficult for everyone in the music and entertainment industry,” the rapper said. “I would like to perform again yesterday. But with everyone involved. It wouldn’t do me any good as an artist with all the music I’ve made about togetherness and equality to exclude a part of my audience. I don’t think that’s the way.”
Fresku’s tour kicks off next week. Previously, Jandino Asporaat, Tim Douwsma and Giel Beelen also canceled their tours for this reason. Their decisions were also heavily criticized. Colleagues stated on social media that these kinds of decisions are not very social towards their employees and crew, who can finally work again.
The Kunstenbond, a large trade union for people working in creative professions, calls on artists to stop canceling tours and performances. “It’s great that those artists stand for their principles,” says a spokesperson for the Kunstenbond in response to reports from the NOS. “But at whose expense is this happening?” Almost everyone in the entertainment sector works as a freelancer and has gone through a very difficult period, both mentally and financially. “The pain is that they are completely dependent on others for their income. After a year and a half of corona, they can hardly absorb the risk of even more canceled performances.”
