My participation in Event activities is voluntary and I accept all Event risks.

I acknowledge that Releasees have no control over and assume no responsibility for the actions of any other participants or other third parties pertaining to the Event or Event activities.
To the fullest extent permitted by law, on my own behalf and on behalf of my representatives, my estate, and all persons claiming through me directly or derivatively, I agree to hold harmless, release, and discharge Releasees from any and all injury that I may sustain caused by my own, any third party’s, or any Releasees’ intentional act, negligence, gross negligence or otherwise without limitation.
Furthermore, I agree on my own behalf and behalf of my representatives, estate, successors and assigns to indemnify the Releasees from and against any and all claims and liability (including attorney’s fees and costs) that arise by reason of any injury or death I or any child of mine may sustain from participation in activities associated with the Event, whether caused by my own or the Releasees’ intentional act, negligence, gross negligence, or otherwise without limitation. This agreement to indemnify includes any claim, action or liability whatsoever, regardless of whether the claim is made, without limitation, by me, by someone on my behalf, by others arising out of my conduct, or by someone whose claim is derived from my injury or death. I acknowledge and agree (1) that it is my responsibility to cover any medical bills that I may incur and to cover myself with any medical insurance I may deem appropriate; and, (2) that I will not and cannot make any claim for medical coverage against the Releasees resulting from any injury or death incurred by me pertaining to the Event. The Releasees shall not be liable for any loss or theft of my personal property. I will follow the Releasees’ Event rules, and I understand that my violation of a rule may be the cause for suspension or cancellation of my participation in Event activities.
I agree that in the event any court finds any of the provisions of this Agreement unenforceable, then such court shall sever such unenforceable provision to the extent necessary to enforce the remaining provisions of this Agreement.
I grant Joe’s Valley Fest, LLC and its partners the right to use and incorporate, in whole or in part, photographs or videos taken of myself and/or my child/children for use in materials and on websites and social media and waive all rights to royalties or other compensation for use of photographs or videos.
