Police violently cracked down on protesters and arrested at least 15 after hundreds blocked a downtown street in Tel Aviv late Friday following the cancellation of a trance music festival.

Protesters had gathered on Rabin Square after police canceled Doof music festival citing intelligence, that drugs were planned to be sold at the venue in Golan Heights.

“[They canceled the event] less than 24 hours before the event was about to begin, after they [the organizers] worked on it for 6 months, investing hundreds of thousands of Israeli shekels, they paid the police for security and had all the licenses,” said a trance music producer.

In a bid to reverse the police’s decision, organizers had appealed to both the Nazareth Magistrate’s Court and Israeli Supreme Court but were rejected.
