Festival goers must heed the directions of the organizer or his appointed or mandated persons at all times on the festival grounds. Failure to comply will lead to a removal from the festival grounds. If necessary, the organizer may call on the police.

The holder of an entry ticket agrees to adhere to the instructions imposed by the organiser in the framework of the public peace and safety during the event.

Festival goers who are removed from the festival grounds for any of the aforementioned reasons will be denied access to the festival grounds for the remainder of the festival, even if they are in possession of a new entry ticket or special admission.

In case the organiser denies somebody access to the festival grounds, the former is entitled to deprive that person of his entry ticket and to deny that person further access in order to prevent that person from trying to enter the site. If the organiser has that person removed from the site, the former is not obliged to refund the entry ticket.

For safety reasons, the organizer reserves the right to:
– interrupt or stop the festival;
– provisionally keep the festival goers on the site at the end of the festival;
– totally or partially vacate the site;
– deny access to the site regardless of the possession of a valid entry ticket.

The organizer may be forced to alter the programme or the timetable of the festival. In this case the entry ticket remains valid and it is neither exchangeable nor refundable.
