GBA Short: Ten Walls & Mysteryland
One Mysteryland artist will no longer be attending the festival this year…or ever again. Apparently due to some homophobic comments by Ten Walls, organizers of the festival decided that these views did not fit the Mysteryland ideals. An email was sent by the Director of Public Relations for Mysteryland with the following quote:
“At Mysteryland we celebrate love, we stimulate diversity, and we give everybody the opportunity to be the person they want to be. The homophobic expressions by Ten Walls, who was booked for Mysteryland Netherlands this August, do not fit that vision. Therefore we have cancelled his gig at Mysteryland Netherlands, and will refrain from booking him at any upcoming Mysteryland editions around the world.”
This just goes to show that you can’t be a total douchebag, even if you are booked for one of the most coveted festivals in the world. Stay kind to each other, and we wish Ten Walls a Good Luck in the rest of his career…
