Royal Blood and Biffy Clyro are the latest artists to drop off the lineup for Moscow’s Park Live festival following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

“Due to the invasion of Ukraine, we will not be appearing at Park Live Festival in Moscow,” Royal Blood says. “We stand united with all Ukrainian and Russian citizens who want peace.”

Similarly, Biffy Clyro states, “Our thoughts and prayers are with all Ukrainian citizens and Russian people who desire peace.”

Earlier this week, Iggy Pop announced he was canceling his Park Live headlining set, calling the decision “necessary.” Additionally, a rep for The Killers tells Billboard that the “Mr. Brightside” rockers have pulled out of the festival, as well.

Park Live takes place over multiple weekends throughout June and July. Other listed headliners include My Chemical Romance, Placebo, Gorillaz, Deftones, Five Finger Death Punch, Slipknot and Limp Bizkit.
