Unplug the Apartheid Israel Plugfest

Aptly named "Plugfest" has been put together to possibly make amends for the cancellation of Lollapalooza Israel, which was cancelled because there were not enough big name bands willing to breach the boycott and play in Israel.

On May 9-11, 2013 the same group that promotes Lollapalooza are helping stage a festival featuring the below international artists and "many more."
Bands scheduled to play at this festival in the Negav Desert, just minutes away from Gaza.

JOIN the public twitter list to ask all these artists who are invited to Israel to decline.
