Snoop Dogg was “astonished” to find himself banned from a music festival in the Netherlands. The rapper was bumped from the June 27 Parkpop festival in the Hague at the request of the mayor and local law enforcement, according to the BBC.


“There’s been much speculation that, given the enormous response by Snoop’s fans to the free festival, the local authorities would not be able to provide sufficient security,” The rapper’s manager says in a statement. “Snoop is a mainstay at music festivals all over the world and has performed at all of these without incident.”
