Overall Rating
  • Awful communication. I am pretty sure it was a scam, because the deadline kept changing, and I never received any emails nor was contacted after being accepted.

    Festival - fantasma. Non si è mai svolto e tuttora, nonostante sia passato quasi un mese dalla data ufficiale del'evento, non si sa nulla. Festival assolutamente da evitare.
