All persons attending the Festival (‘Attendees’), (including, but not limited to those involved in providing services, guests, ticket holders, volunteers, trade/exhibitors and their staff/contractors), agree to be bound by these terms, applicable legislation and laws, regulations and codes of practice, as well as any rules, requirements and directions of the Event Director.
The Festival ticket sales are managed by Ang-Gnarra and these terms are to be read in conjunction with the Ang-Gnarra ticketing terms. Ticket purchase is subject to the Ang-Gnarra ticketing terms. In the event of any inconsistency between the terms, the Ang-Gnarra ticketing terms prevail. By purchasing a ticket (or otherwise obtaining a ticket) to the Festival - you become a ‘Ticket Holder’ and agree to these Terms and Conditions and other published Terms and Conditions and Policies of the Event Director related to the Festival. The Event Director provides no refund for Ticket Holder cancellations (unless non-attendance is related to public health - see COVID-19 clause below); including when an Attendee has been requested to leave the Festival for breaching the terms and rules of the venue or when a Ticket Holder has a change of mind, except as required by the Australian Consumer Law.
Tickets to the Festival are only available through the official Laura Quinkan Dance Festival website and sites or vendors approved by the Event Director. Any sites or vendors approved will be listed on the Laura Quinkan Dance Festival website. Tickets are not to be resold or offered for resale or used for any promotional purposes without prior written consent from the Event Director. Tickets in breach of this condition will be deemed unauthorised and entry may be refused. Tickets purchased through unapproved sites or ticket sellers will not be honoured.
Attendees at the Festival grant permission for a search of personal belongings prior to entry and at the venue. Refusal to be searched will constitute a breach of these terms and entry will not be permitted. Possession of prohibited items at any time may incur confiscation of the goods, refusal of entry or a request to leave the Festival.
Prohibited items may include animals, alcohol, illicit drugs, weapons and flammables. The Event Director may also deem certain items to be restricted in certain areas. Smoking is not permitted in any part of the Festival unless in designated smoking areas. Illegal activity or possession of illegal goods may result in notification to authorities. Unauthorised and unapproved marketing material that is not part of an exhibition or approved by the Event Director may be confiscated. The Event Director may also deem other objects to be prohibited at its discretion and this list is non-exhaustive.
It is a requirement that Attendees refrain from inappropriate behaviour including, but not limited to bullying, harassment, disruptiveness, being intoxicated or substance affected, or any other behaviour deemed as inappropriate by the Event Director, including but not limited to antisocial behaviour, aggressiveness, and nuisance. Such behaviour may result in the Attendee being ejected at the Event Director’s discretion from all areas of the Festival including camping areas. Attendees found to be in attendance without correct ticketing authorisation or formal identification may also be ejected. Once ejected, Attendees may only re-enter the Festival at the discretion of the Event Director.
Photography & Filming
During the Festival the Event Director, and/or their agents/ contractors, appointees, delegates and official media outlets, may photograph or record Attendees on film or other media.

Attendees agree to fully indemnify the Event Director from any action, claim or proceedings arising from the use by any party of images or recordings.

If postponed, any tickets sold will remain valid for the postponed event, with Ticket Holders entitled to a full refund (upon making such request to email@example.com) if the new dates are unsuitable.
