A few days after the racism scandal on Sylt, another case caused a stir. This time at a folk festival in Erlangen, Bavaria. There, young men shouted xenophobic slogans – again to the tune of DJ Gigi D’Agostino’s party hit “L’amour toujours”.

Two men chanted racist slogans to the song “L’amour toujours” by Italian DJ Gigi D’Agostino at the Erlangen Bergkirchweih. Other guests then called security, police said on Saturday.

The suspects, aged 21 and 26, were banned from entering the festival grounds on Friday evening and state security initiated an investigation. They are said to have shouted “foreigners out”, as the “BR” writes. According to information from the station, the incident occurred in the “Altstädter Schießhaus” restaurant. The Erlangen Police Department is investigating. We are currently looking for witnesses who observed the incident and took pictures or videos.

The managing director of the affected beer garden on the Bergkirchweih site distanced herself from the racist slogans in a statement. “We strongly condemn any form of xenophobia, racism and intolerance,” it said. The song “L’amour toujours” will no longer be played there in the future.

Locals were also upset about the incident. Resident Heinrich said in an interview with “NEWS5”: “It’s brainless to sing such songs.” But guests at the folk festival also expected the bawling guests. “Xenophobic slogans don’t belong anywhere,” said visitor Roland. Such sayings would be a thing of the past.

Recently, a cell phone video made headlines across the country. It showed several young people shouting racist slogans to the same song in a bar on Sylt. In the video, which was just a few seconds long and went viral and was said to have been taken at Pentecost, you can see and hear young people shouting racist slogans to the tune of the more than 20-year-old party hit.
