Campsite Rules

No one likes hearing about rules, but our campsite rules are created with you in mind, and help to ensure that everyone on-site has the best possible experience.

We know there won’t be any problems, but to safeguard your stay we respectfully ask that everyone adheres to the following:

You will be allocated a pitch for Camper Vans and Live In Vehicles on Arrival. Customers Pitching a tent can choose a spot within the camping boundaries.

Camper Vans and Camping may not pitch next to each other although due to the size of the site can be in close proximity if they wish to do so.

Terms & Conditions

FESTIVAL ENTRY TERMS AND CONDITIONS

General Terms and Conditions:

1. The purchase of this ticket (“the Ticket”) by you (“you or “Your”) from the authorised ticket agent, (“the Ticket Agent”), entitles You to gain entry to the Jurassic Fields Music Festival (“the Event”) staged by Jurassic Fields Productions Limited (“the Promoter”) at the venue advertised (“the Venue”). Only customers holding a valid Ticket will be admitted to the Event. Your Ticket may be invalidated if any part of it is removed, altered or defaced.

2. This Ticket is issued subject to the terms and conditions contained herein, as well as those published by the Venue and the Ticket Agent on their respective websites (“the Terms and Conditions”). Purchase of any Ticket constitutes acceptance of these Terms and Conditions on Your behalf and on behalf of any person for whom You are purchasing Tickets. In the event of any inconsistency between these Terms and Conditions and those of the Venue or the Ticket Agent, these terms and conditions stated on this website shall prevail.

3. The Terms and Conditions are subject to change from time to time without notice and in our sole discretion. We will notify You of amendments to the Terms and Conditions by posting them to this website.

4. Upon purchase, please check Tickets carefully as errors cannot always be rectified following purchase. Tickets are not issued on a sale or return basis and refunds will not be made on returned Tickets unless otherwise provided under the Terms and Conditions.

5. The Promoter is not responsible for any Ticket that is lost, stolen or destroyed. You are solely responsible for the safety of Your Ticket. It is not always possible to issue duplicate Tickets. If duplicate Tickets are issued, a reasonable and appropriate administration fee may be charged.

6. Purchase or possession of a Ticket does not confer any rights (by implication or otherwise) on You to use, alter, copy, or otherwise deal with any of the symbols, trademarks, logos and/or intellectual property appearing on the Ticket.

7. Neither the Venue nor the Promoter nor the Ticket Agent shall have any further liability beyond the face value of the Ticket purchased plus the relevant per ticket booking fee.

8. In the event of a cancellation or Material Alteration of the Event (defined below) You will be entitled to a refund in accordance with the terms and conditions or refund policy of the authorised Ticket Agent from whom You purchased a Ticket. Where the cancellation takes place part-way through an Event, at the discretion of the Promoter, You may only be entitled to a refund of part of the face price which You paid for the Ticket. Personal arrangements including travel, subsistence and accommodation in relation to the Event which have been arranged by You are made at Your own risk and neither the authorised Ticket Agent nor the Promoter will have any liability for any such loss of enjoyment or wasted expenditure.

A “Material Alteration” is a change which in our reasonable opinion makes the Event materially different to the Event which purchasers of the Ticket could reasonably expect. Changes to performance times, acts and performers/participants shall not be considered a Material Alteration and the Promoter will not be liable for such changes. A Material Alteration is judged by reference to the nature, form and billing of the Event. The Event is judged and valued by reference to the overall theme rather than any individual act, performer or participant scheduled to appear. No scheduled acts may be considered as headline acts, regardless of their relative fame or prominence in the billing. Hence cancellation by an artist will not entitle You to a refund, regardless of their position on the bill.

9. In the event that You are entitled to a refund, please refer to the terms and conditions of the authorised Ticket Agent from which You purchased Your Ticket for details of how to claim that refund. You may not be entitled to obtain a refund if You fail to follow the instructions provided within the notified timeframes. Refunds will only be made to the person who purchased a Ticket.

10. It is Your responsibility to check that the Event has not been cancelled, rescheduled or made the subject of a Material Alteration. Information on such matters will be made available on behalf of the Promoter as soon as reasonably practicable on the Event website and/or at the Venue. Customers are advised that the website cannot always be updated immediately and that circumstances giving rise to cancellation, postponement or Material Alterations can sometimes arise at late notice or immediately prior to an Event.

11. Tickets will not be refunded where they have been already used to gain entry to the Event.

12. Tickets are personal revocable licences and shall at all times remain the property of the Promoter and subject to these Terms and Conditions. You may not re-sell or transfer a Ticket for commercial gain. If a Ticket is re-sold, transferred or advertised for profit or commercial gain or used for competitions, promotions or hospitality packages by anyone other than the Promoter, or an authorised sub-agent, it will be void and You will be refused entry to, or ejected from, the Venue without refund. Should You re-sell a Ticket to a third party you may find that the third party brings a legal claim against You for selling a Ticket which does not permit access to the Event. The Promoter reserves the right to cancel any Ticket booking which it reasonable believes to have been made with a view to re-sell Tickets or where the Ticket has been purchased using fraudulent means, including credit card fraud.

13. Tickets may be restricted to a maximum number per person per credit card or per household. These restrictions will be notified to you by the Ticket Agent and on the Event website before You make Your booking. The Promoter reserves the right to cancel Tickets purchased in excess of this number without prior notification to you of such cancellation.

14. This is at least in part an outdoor event and, as with all action sports and music events, performance is subject to the prevailing weather conditions. In the event that it is deemed unsafe for any scheduled events or activities to take place the Promoter may reschedule the Event or cancel it in its entirety. As per clause 8 above, if the Event is cancelled entirely, the Promoter shall refund the price of the Ticket to its face value. If part of the Event is cancelled, the Promoter may refund some or all of the purchase price of the Ticket in its absolute discretion, but shall be under no obligation to do so.

15. By attending the Event, You give Your express consent to Your actual or simulated likeness being included within any film, photograph, audio and/or audiovisual recording to be exploited in any and all media for any purpose at any time throughout the world, the copyright to which shall be owned by the Promoter or its contractors without payment or compensation.

This includes filming by the police or security staff that may be carried out for the security of customers.

16. Due to legal artist performance rights and royalty obligations, You cannot bring any video or audio recording equipment or any camera which is over 35mm or with a detachable lens into the Venue. You will not be allowed to enter the Venue if You bring equipment that, at the discretion of Event security, infringes on these rules.

17. A security search policy is in place and a random selection of the public will be searched. Under no Circumstances will there be any form of discrimination when deciding which members of the Public should undergo a random search.

Such requests for proof of age will be made prior to any search operations, and if right of entry is refused on the grounds of age, then no body search or search of bags or belongings will take place.
