Ten Walls dropped from festivals over homophobic statement

Ten walls

So, you might already know about the big scandal in the electronic music scene after Ten Walls made an homophobic statement on his facebook page, comparing homosexuality to paedophilia and calling them a ‘different breed’.

I remember producing music for one Lithuanian musician, who tried to wash my brain that I don’t need to be so conservative and intolerant about them. When I asked him ‘what would you do if you realized that your 16-year-old son’s browny (anus) is ripped by his boyfriend?’ Well he was silent.

One of my first gigs in Ireland, on my way to [my] hotel I saw a church with a fence decorated with hundreds of baby shoes. Naturally I wondered why? Unfortunately a priest’s lie for many years was uncovered when children were massively raped. Unfortunately the people of other breed continue to do it and everyone knows it but does nothing.

Karma’s a bitch!

It seems his further ‘apologies’ meant nothing. Creamfields, PITCH Festival, Sónar Festival and Austria’s Urban Art Forms Festival have removed Ten Walls from their line-ups, quite possibly his booking agent has resigned, Fort Romeau has cancelled his support slot with the Lithuanian artist at Koko in London in November and many artists and fans showed their contempt over this situation.

This twist will have an enormous impact on Marijus Adomaitis, just now when he was on the peak of his career due to his 2014 single “Walking with Elephants”.
