To anyone who might like to read this (good manners if you do)…

To quote Bluesfest: ‘We’ve listened to your concerns and we’ve heard you’.

What a load of corporate crap. The public is not stupid and they have long memories.

If Bluesfest had the guts, they’d admit to themselves that they stuffed up.

What they did was illegal, arguably unethical and greedy. And if it wasn’t for the public outcry, written objections and the court case which found against them, do you think they’d be doing a U-turn? No bloody way, José.

This will be my 17th and final Bluesfest. Therefore, the financial losers will be Bluesfest.
