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.
