I am happy to inform everyone who is following my saga that the gentleman I was dealing with in application of WoW Festival in Norfolk is no longer looking after artists submissions. After following up, I received an email that categorically stated the views of this individual were not the views of the festival.
"...you will be considered alongside all other musicians who apply to play at our festival. There is no discrimination at WoW; an artiste just has to be good and right for what we are seeking to create."
And so life goes on. Unapologetic and benignly pushing forwards. Thanks again for all the messages of support. Big love to you all!
