Areas of the event venue may be crowded, and some areas may be very crowded, by attendees including attendees who may be dancing or moshing and attendance in these areas carries with it a particularly high risk of injury. Attendees must take care, move around the venue carefully having regard to all these risks and take responsibility for their own safety at all times while at the Event.
9.2 Except where liability cannot be excluded by law, We (including Our employees, contractors and agents) will not be liable for any loss, cost, expense, injury, claim or damages suffered or sustained by any ticket buyer or attendee.

9.3 To the full extent permitted by law, attendees waive all legal rights of action against and fully release Us, our agents, employees and volunteers for all claims for compensation for loss, damage, injury or death howsoever arising out of or in relation to the attendee’s entry to and presence at the Event venue and attendance at the Event.
