(i) Tickets are sold or given, and admission to the Festival is granted on the express condition that the holder is bound by these terms and conditions and any other rules and regulations notified by the Promoter via its official website www.innvervarnika.com

(ii) All tickets sales are final and binding. The Promoter will not replace lost, destroyed, damaged or stolen tickets. The Promoter will not be required to refund any ticket purchases whatsoever under any circumstances. Tickets are non transferable and are not for resale and unlawful resale is grounds for for seizure or cancellation of tickets.

(iii) The Promoter reserves the right to enforce ticket purchase limits and cancel any tickets obtained above said limits by any one customer.

(iv) The Promoter reserves its right to cancel the Festival at any time due to a Force Majeure Event, which in the Promoter’s sole discretion makes it logistically impossible to continue to operate the Festival. “Force Majeure Event” shall mean anything outside the Promoter’s reasonable control, including without limitation, fire, bad weather, damage to Festival Site caused by bad weather, rain, flood, drought, storm, lightning, act of god, explosion, sabotage, accident, labour dispute, council or police rulings or war. In such circumstances, the Promoter will not be liable for any damage, compensation, loss or expenses resulting from the Festival being cancelled, postponed, relocated or changed.
