The Black Madonna Outraged Over Amazon Festival Booking & Demanded To Be Removed from Lineup

The Black Madonna has been removed from Amazon’s newly announced Intersect Music Festival after expressing extreme outrage over the booking.

The event sponsored by Amazon Web Services aka AWS has a strong lineup, featuring Foo Fighters, Kacey Musgraves, Beck, Anderson.Paak and more — but The Black Madonna wants absolutely no part of it. According to the superstar DJ, Amazon was never mentioned in any of the paperwork or offers put forth by the third party dealing with the booking.

She claims this festival is not what she — or potentially any of the other artists — signed up for. It’s unclear whether other acts including Gesaffelstein, Flying Lotus, Sophie and Jamie XX were left in the dark about festival affiliations as well.

Amazon, however, tells a much different story in its statement to Pitchfork:

Our affiliation of the Intersect Festival is clear in the contract that was signed by Black Madonna’s management team. “Amazon Web Services” was named in the contract five separate times, and throughout creative materials that were reviewed and approved. Regardless, we’ve decided to release her from her contractual obligation.

It’s obvious The Black Madonna does not wish to be affiliated with Amazon or the company’s forthcoming event, set to take place in Las Vegas this December.
