Under no circumstances shall Holder be entitled to a refund of any shipping, handling or other processing fees.

As responsible members of the community, Festival Organizers recognize the concern about drinking and driving, and its policy is to encourage responsible consumption of products at the Festival. Attendees who consume alcoholic beverages must do so in a responsible manner. If Holder believes that his/her driving ability may be impaired or that Holder cannot safely operate a motor vehicle, please speak with a Festival representative who will assist in securing transportation (at Holder’s cost) to Holder’s destination point. Due to the sheer number of Event attendees, neither the Festival Organizers nor the representatives of any Event venue can ensure that all attendees who intend to drive are capable of driving. Accordingly, Holder agrees to release, indemnify and hold harmless Organizer Representatives and the Event venue, as appropriate, from any liability related thereto.
