With the ticket purchase, the ticket buyer and T-Studio become contractual partners.
The following General Terms and Conditions (GTC) apply in the relationship between the festival visitors (hereinafter referred to as "visitors") and (hereinafter referred to as the "organizer").
A contract is concluded either by the purchase of a ticket or - if there is an entry without a ticket purchase - by entering the event site, as well as the purchase contracts for the color powder.
1.1. Start of the event: 12 noon
End of the event: 22 p.m. Color countdown: First countdown at 15 p.m. – then every hour until the last countdown at 21.50 p.m.

2.1. With the ticket purchase, the ticket buyer and SIA ‘’T STUDIO’’ become contractual partners.
Admission to the Holi Music Festival is limited and only available online via our ticket partners e.g. Bilesu Serviss, Fienta or on our website. The remaining tickets will be available at the box office during the event. However, the organizer recommends purchasing the ticket in advance due to the high demand.
2.2. It is generally prohibited to resell a ticket that has already been purchased commercially. The tickets may also not be sold privately at a price higher than the printed ticket price plus proven fees. Any use for raffle purposes and/or for the implementation of competitions is also prohibited without the prior express written consent of the organizer. A violation will result in the loss of the right to enter without compensation.
2.3. If the ticket is lost, there will be no replacement. Once tickets are sold they will not be refunded unless event is cancelled by the organizers.
2.4. If you have received a free ticket either from the organizers or official partners or you have paid zero value for a ticket, then you will not be entitled to any complimentary colors. However, you can always purchase free colors inside the festival premises. Complimentary colors are included only with paid tickets and the quantities of colors can be changed or denied by the organizers depending on the availability of colors.
3. ENTRY / OUTLET / SECURITY CHECKS
3.1. Admission to the concert is only possible with a valid ticket. The card must be shown at the entrance. Furthermore, identification is mandatory.
3.2. At the entrance to the festival, a security check will be carried out by the organizers or the security service on-site for reasons of security and general order as well as waste avoidance. The security service is instructed to carry out a body and bag search of the festival visitors. The person requesting admission agrees to this verification. If she fails to do so, she may be denied entry. In this case, there is no entitlement to reimbursement of the ticket costs.
3.4. The organizer reserves the right to refuse admission to the festival if the festival visitor gives reason to do so for a good cause. An important reason is in particular an obvious heavily intoxicated state of the visitor, obviously inhumane, racist, homophobic clothing, as well as dangerous objects (e.g. weapons, pyrotechnics, torches, intoxicants and other dangerous objects). Good cause shall also be deemed to be the unauthorised carrying of recording devices for sound/video recordings (listed in detail under Section 9). Admission may also be denied if the age limit for admission is violated (in case of doubt, an age check may take place).
3.4. In the event of non-admission despite the ticket, the concertgoer has the right to a refund of the ticket price, unless there is an important reason (in particular the aforementioned reasons) for refusing admission. In this case, a return of the ticket/refund of the ticket price is not possible. Any further claim for damages is excluded unless the organizer acts intentionally or grossly negligently.
3.5. The organizer does not assume any contractual obligations to conduct such supervision by admitting persons who require supervision due to their mental or physical condition. This applies both to the person in need of supervision and to persons subject to supervision as well as other visitors.
3.6. The ticket loses its validity when leaving the event area and does not entitle the holder to re-entry.
3.7. At the exit from the festival, for reasons of safety and order as well as the prevention of the color powder and drinks leaving the premises, there will be a security check by the security service on site. The security service is instructed to carry out a body and bag search of the festival visitors. The person requesting the outlet agrees to this verification.
3.8. Backpacks are not permitted. Only small bags and sports bags up to an A4 format are allowed. It is not permitted to bring food and drinks onto the premises.

5. COLOR POWDER
5.1. The colour powder can be purchased with limited availability for a fee of €2 per bag on the festival grounds.
We expressly ask you to use the powder only for the common countdowns!
5.2. The organizer is not aware of any adverse effects on health and the environment caused by the color powder. Nevertheless, the organizer takes the following safety measures as a precautionary measure:
a. Festival-goers are not allowed to bring their own paint powder. It is only the uniform color powder according to para. 5.1. permitted on the event site of which the safety-relevant event participants and licensing authorities are aware of the composition.
b. Festival-goers with respiratory diseases (especially asthmatic) are advised not to attend the concert.
c. Festival-goers with contact lenses are advised not to wear them at the event.
d. To protect the eyes, it is recommended to wear swimming goggles during the paint cast.
To protect the respiratory tract and lungs, it is recommended to put on a face mask during the paint throw.
e. In rare cases, the color powder can cause allergies and lead to irritation of the skin, eyes and mucous membranes. The eyes should then be rinsed with clear water as soon as possible. The paramedics on the site provide direct support here. These can be found evenly distributed in the areas marked as medical tents on the site.
The security measures can be updated and supplemented by the organizer at any time (festival visitors can find updates and additions under www.holimusicfestival.com).
The participant takes full responsibility for their own health during the festival.
5.3. Electronic and other sensitive devices such as cameras, etc. can be damaged or destroyed by the color powder. The organizer, therefore, recommends that you do not bring them onto the site or protect them appropriately. In any case, the organizer is not liable for any damage or destruction of these items. Liability in the event of intent and gross negligence on the part of the organizer remains unaffected.
5.4 . Participants are advised to wear older or no longer used clothes during the event, as it is possible that colored or white laundry will not be as radiant after the wash cycle, despite its solubility in water and easy washability. The organizer assumes no liability if the color powder does not dissolve without residue from clothing, bags, hair, etc. can be removed by washing or cleaning. The visitor waives all resulting claims against the organizer.
5.5 In rare cases, the dye used in the powder may adhere to bleached, treated or pre-damaged hair. If someone finds color residues in their hair, it is not a coloring, but small color particles that still adhere to the hair and fall off after repeated washing with normal shampoo. Hair treatments should be avoided in this case.
6. VOLUME, HEARING PROTECTION
We would like to point out that there is a risk of possible damage to health, especially hearing impairment, at the festival due to increased volume. It is generally recommended to use earplugs. Attendance at the event is therefore at your own risk. Liability on the part of the organiser for hearing damage due to a lack of precautionary measures is excluded, unless the organiser acts with gross negligence or intent or has not fulfilled his duty to ensure road safety.
7. DOMICILIARY RIGHTS, PROHIBITIONS
7.1. On the entire festival grounds, the domiciliary right is exercised by the organizer or by the persons commissioned by him. The security personnel must be followed immediately.

Furthermore, the organizer is liable without limitation in accordance with the statutory provisions for damages resulting from the expulsion from the festival site (on the basis of section 7.3 sentence 1), which are based on the breach of such obligations, the fulfilment of which is essential for the proper execution of the contract concluded with the festival visitor, the breach of which jeopardizes the achievement of the purpose of the contract and on the observance of which the festival visitor regularly relies (essential Contractual Obligations / Cardinal Obligations) upon.

Otherwise, liability for slight negligence is excluded. A material breach of contract in the aforementioned sense is one whose fulfilment is essential for the proper execution of the contract and on whose observance the visitor can rely.
