NMF does not support actions of Pink Pony
NORMAN, Okla.- Norman Music Festival Chair Gene Bertman released the following statement today.
“The Norman Music Festival does not support the actions of Pink Pony at our festival on Saturday night. We had no prior knowledge of the performance content, and we oppose their use and depiction of American Indian artifacts and symbols,” Bertman said. “We certainly understand that these actions do nothing but promote racism, cultural discrimination, and religious discrimination. The Norman Music Festival is here to support artists and bring people together – not divide them. We apologize to anyone who was offended.”
The mission of the Norman Music Alliance is to promote live events for the community of Norman, Oklahoma, and the surrounding area that celebrates original music of many genres produced by local, regional and national musicians.
