Rammstein’s Till Lindemann Detained & Questioned In Russia

According to BBC, Rammstein’s Till Lindemann was recently arrested in Russia. The frontman was taken into custody and questioned by authorities after he was scheduled to perform at the “Maklarin For The Motherland” festival in Tver, Russia. Lindemann‘s detainment was related to restrictions that were placed on large gathering due to the coronavirus pandemic.

RIA said the following:

“The department informed the organizers of the festival, a representative of the invited artist Till Lindemann – Reyband A.R., that holding the festival without observing the above restrictions is categorically unacceptable, since it would pose a threat to the life and health of citizens.”

The event’s organizer Maxim Larin also commented:

“The festival in full, as we tried to organize, we are unable to do it due to the decision and physical obstacle of the authorities. Today and yesterday we were shown this.”

He also told BBC that authorities took issue with the festival’s name and that he believes the cancellation was political:

“It is a pity that the holding’s anniversary and mine were enveloped in politics and everything was destroyed.”

Summa Inferno are also reporting that Lindemann’s manager Anar Reiband was accused of pretending to be a tourist to enter the country. Authorities believe he was involved in organizing the festival. As a result, he could get deported and possibly banned from Russia.

Aside from this issue, Lindemann is also in trouble for selling the “Lubimiy Gorod” music video that he filmed at the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia as a NFT. According to DW, he had permission to film the clip, but didn’t have permission to sell it. The museum said the following:

“The use of images of objects from the museum’s collection and furnishings in the collection […] was not agreed with the museum.”

“Mr. Lindemann personally signed a contract with the Hermitage allowing him to use images of the Hermitage and all prepared materials exclusively for the music video.”
