In Kraviz's statement, she says in part: "I am a musician and was never involved in supporting the politicians or political parties, I am not planning to do it in the future. I don't understand politics or the social processes it creates. So I don't think it is right to talk about it on social media."
None of the festivals gave explicit reasoning for this decision. PollerWiesen said, "this decision was made by us following a process of open dialogue with all parties involved."
Similarly, The Crave wrote: "After long and intensive discussions both internally and externally we have decided that Nina Kraviz will not play The Crave Festival 2022."
Movement Detroit, where Kraviz was listed as one of the big names to expect, tweeted: "Nina Kraviz is unable to play Movement this year."
