The controversial hit song “Layla” will probably not be heard at the Oktoberfest either. A spokesman for the Oktoberfest hosts said on Thursday that the song should not be played in the festival tents.
Wirte spokesman Peter Inselkammer told “tonline”. “Among the landlords there is the prevailing opinion that ‘Layla’ is not played in the tents,” says Inselkammer. “We hosts all agree on that. There are many other good songs, we don’t need them.”
Inselkammer himself said “tonline” that he was not a fan of the song anyway. He finds the song “to be honest, a bit stupid.”
The song has sparked a sexism debate in recent days. You can read more about it here: PUSH – Allegations of sexism – “Layla” producer Ikke Hipgold: “It’s all a huge promotion”
