  1. I hit return to try and add a new paragraph to the description of my band and why we would be perfect for Loud Women and it submitted the form instead..i dont want to be annoying and apply twice…


  2. Hi. When do you think you’ll be deciding on the bands? I know it’s quite a long way off, but we’re trying to sort out our Autumn gig dates now, and we definitely want to save the date in case you include us!


  3. Hi, I just had the same issue when trying to add to our bio on the application page! Alteration would be a great addition to the line up as we are female-fronted and always love to represent that aspect of our band – we always say there aren’t enough women in rock! We have a punk edge to our music and can fit alongside any other rock bands as our style is pretty diverse. Plus it sounds amazing!


  4. May have accidentally submitted twice… Apologies if I have! The page crashed when I tried to complete the details of our genre etc.
