In order to maintain security and safety at the Festival or Official Campsites, images of ticket(s) and pass(es) or other accreditation copied or posted on social media may result in that ticket(s) and/or pass(es) being cancelled and no refund can be made in such circumstances.
14.

15. Wristbands removed from the wrist or tampered with will be rendered invalid and will not be replaced. Lost or missing wristbands will not be replaced. Those without wristbands or appropriate accreditation will be refused admission to the site or may be removed from the Festival Site, including Official Campsites.

16. The lead booker accepts liability for any loss or damage to structures incurred during the hire period which is considered by the management to be more substantial than general wear and tear.

In particular this will apply to any public health rules, policies, advice and guidance which can be subject to change at short notice.
