CHAPTER 2 VISITING EVENTS
Article 4 Ticket
4.1 Access to the Event is only obtained by showing a valid and undamaged Ticket. People wishing to enter the Event may be requested and will then be obliged to show proof of identity due to checks on the age limit (if applicable). In the event, after entry, the Visitor leaves the Event or its location, the Ticket will automatically lose its validity.
4.2 People younger than 18 will simply be refused entry to the Event, unless explicitly otherwise determined by the Organiser, for example in case a different legal drinking age is used, in which case the Organiser will not be obliged to refund the amount of the Ticket.
4.3 Tickets are and remain the property of the Organiser. The Ticket gives the holder the right to attend the Event. Access is given only to the first holder of the Ticket scanned at the entrance of the Event. The Organiser may presuppose that the holder of this Ticket is also the person who has a right to it. The Organiser is not obliged to perform any further verification of Tickets. The Visitor must take responsibility for ensuring that he is and remains the (sole) holder of the Ticket issued by the Organiser or by an advance sales address that it has engaged.
4.4 As of the time that the Ticket has been provided to the Visitor, the Visitor bears the risk of any loss, theft, damage or misuse of the Ticket. The Ticket is only supplied once and gives access to only one person.
4.5 The Organiser reserves the right to set a maximum on the number of Tickets to be ordered by a Visitor, in that case the Visitor is obliged to comply with such maximum number.
4.6 Solely purchases at the authorized (pre)sale addresses or with the Organiser guarantee the validity of the Tickets. The burden of proof in this regard rests on the Visitor. The Ticket may consist of a barcode provided to the Visitor via electronic communication (e-mail). In the event the Visitor has chosen to receive the Ticket in this manner, the Visitor must ensure that the Ticket can be provided by electronic communication and that it can be provided in a safe manner. Organiser cannot guarantee the confidentiality of the issued Ticket or guarantee the receipt of the admission ticket. Scanning the Ticket from a mobile device of the Visitor is done at the sole risk of the Visitor. Organiser cannot be held liable in the event the Ticket cannot be scanned and the Visitor is not entitled to a refund of the amount of the Ticket and/or compensation in this case.
Article 5 Prohibition against Resale, etc.
5.1 Tickets for the Event may not in any way be resold by the Visitor in the context of commercial purposes.
5.2 The Organiser may appoint an authorized resale platform (e.g. an additional official sales channel) for Tickets for the Event, which could be an online secondary ticket marketplace.

5.4 The Visitor who transfers on his Ticket to a third party is obliged to impose on the one to whom he transfers the Ticket the obligations that rest on him as Visitor, as reflected in these General Terms and Conditions. Transferor remains responsible vis-à-vis the Organiser for the compliance of this person with the same obligations.
5.5 If the Visitor does not comply with his obligations as reflected in the preceding paragraphs of this article and/or cannot guarantee them, the Visitor will forfeit to the Organiser an immediately payable penalty of € 10,000,- per violation and € 5,000,- for each day that the violation has continued or continues, without prejudice to the Organiser’s additional right to demand compliance from the Visitor and/or compensation of loss suffered or to be suffered.
5.6 Should the Visitor not comply with the provisions of these General Terms and Conditions, the Organiser is entitled to invalidate/cancel the Tickets or refuse the Visitor (further) access to the Event without the Visitor being entitled to reimbursement of the amount that he has paid the Organiser, directly or via an advance sales address, for the Ticket (including service and/or transaction costs). The holders of any such Tickets will be denied entry to the Event, without any right to compensation.

Article 16 Tokens
Tokens purchased during an Event will only be valid for that Event. The Organiser is not obliged to refund the purchase price of tokens after the Event.

These conditions may differ from what is stated in this article of the General Terms and Conditions.
Article 17 Electronic Payment Instrument
During the Event, the Organiser can, make use of an ‘open loop’ / cashless system for the consumption done by the Visitor, among others by using debit or credit card transactions instead of tokens or coins.

During the Event no refund to the Visitor (“Refund”) of the value of any remaining credit on this payment card (“Remaining credit”) will take place. The Remaining credit can be Refunded only once to the Visitor after the Event. The Visitor needs to request the Organiser for a Refund of the Remaining credit within two weeks after the Event, unless stated otherwise. After this period the Visitor loses the right to a Refund of the Remaining credit. All necessary information regarding (the application of) the Refund, can be read on the Event Website. Performing a Refund entails costs and the Organiser reserves the right to impose these costs on the Visitor. These costs are expressed on the Event Website. The payment card should remain after the Event in the possession of the Visitor since with this payment card the Remaining credit will be determined. In case of loss or possible theft of the payment card a Refund of any Remaining credit is not possible. The Organiser is never liable for any loss and/or theft of the payment card.
Article 18 Lockers
The Organiser (hereafter in this article, “The Organiser”) has the choice to provide the Visitor the possibility to rent a locker at the Event. A locker is a storage area for objects, clothes, bags, cash and/or securities of the Visitor, for which the Visitor will receive a personal key/code. With this key/code, the Visitor can open and close the locker. On the use of the locker by the Visitor additional general terms (of a third party) may apply, to which general terms the Visitor agrees at the time of renting the locker. The Organiser will not be liable for loss and/or theft and/or use by another of the personal key/code. Therefore, the Visitor should always keep the key/code for himself and the Visitor is recommended to not store any valuables in the locker.
Article 19 Camping facilities
The Organiser may also offer camping facilities to Visitors at an Event, which offer will be valid for as long as those facilities remain available. The Visitor must purchase a special camping ticket for access to the camping facilities.

The Third Party concerned is then liable for the performance of any obligation with respect to the Visitor.

The Visitor to an Event of the Organiser may be offered products and/or services at that Event by Third Parties with a stand, such as food or beverages, merchandise items or other products such as sunglasses or clothing, or by providers of (fairground) attractions. Although the Organiser chooses these Third Parties with care, it is not a party to any agreement between the Visitor and the Third Party. The Organiser will not be liable under any circumstances for any damage arising from the purchase or procurement of a product or service by the Visitor, including a (fairground) ride of the Third Party. The Visitor indemnifies the Organiser against any claim for costs or damage that may arise from an agreement between himself and the Third Party.
