Snoop Dogg Banned From Dutch Festival

LONDON (VIP NEWS) — Snoop Dogg has been banned from a free festival in the Netherlands after police said they wanted to guarantee its "open and friendly character."

Authorities asked organizers to find a replacement act for Parkpop in The Hague because they thought the US rapper was inappropriate.

Organizers say they have been left with little time ahead of the June 27 gig.

In 2007, the rapper was denied a UK visa after a fracas at Heathrow Airport involving members of his entourage.

The 38-year-old is scheduled to appear at UK festivals including Wireless and Glastonbury this summer.
