Terms & Conditions

North Fest Terms and Conditions (the “Conditions”)

“Event” means the event for which You have purchased a Ticket to attend, being North Fest 2021;

“Promoter”, “We” and “Us” means North Fest Manchester Limited and any associated promoter(s) or organisers of the Event; and 

“Ticket” means Your ticket to the Event, in any format (including ‘print at home’ tickets).

“You” or “Your” means you as the Ticket holder or anybody who in the Promoter’s reasonable opinion is acting with your authority or permission. 


  1. These Conditions incorporate, and should be read in accordance with, the terms and conditions of the authorised agent from which You purchased Your Ticket, copies of which are available from the relevant authorised Ticket agent. In the event or any inconsistency between these Conditions and the terms and conditions of the relevant authorised Ticket agent, these Conditions shall prevail.

  2. All Tickets are sold subject to these Conditions. Please read the Conditions carefully prior to purchase and raise any queries prior to purchase. Purchase or possession of a Ticket constitutes acceptance of these Conditions.

  3. These Conditions are subject to change from time to time without notice and in the Promoter’s sole discretion. We will notify You of amendments to these Conditions by posting them to this website. 


  1. It is Your responsibility to check Your Ticket as if You have made a mistake, it cannot always be rectified after purchase. Upon purchase and receipt of Your Ticket, please check it carefully and notify Us immediately if You discover a mistake.

  2. You must produce a valid Ticket to gain access to the Event and must keep possession of it at all times during the Event. Wristbands are in operation, and when issued must be worn at all times for the duration of the Event.

  3. The Promoter will not issue duplicate tickets for lost or stolen Tickets. Keep Your Ticket safe.

  4. Tickets are security printed. Tickets purchased from sources other than authorised Ticket agents are at Your own risk and may be invalid.  Beware of forgeries.

  5. A Ticket may be invalidated if any part of it is removed, altered, torn or defaced.

  6. Tickets are personal revocable licences and shall at all times remain the Promoter’s property and subject to these Conditions. Any Ticket obtained in breach of the Conditions will be void. Any person seeking to use a void Ticket may be refused entry to, or ejected from, the Event without refund, and may be subject to legal action.  Void Tickets are non-refundable. 

  7. By entering the Event You give Your express consent to being photographed/filmed or sound recorded as part of the audience, and to Your name, voice and/or likeness being included within any film, photograph, audio or audiovisual recording of the Event to be exploited in any and all media for any purpose at any time throughout the world.  This may include filming by the police or security staff for the security of attendees at the Event or the prevention of crime.

  8. There shall be no pass-outs and no re-entry once You have entered the Event. 

  9. Tickets cannot be exchanged or refunded unless the Event is cancelled, re-scheduled or there is a material change to the Event.  A ‘material’ change is a change which, in the Promoter’s reasonable opinion, makes the Event materially different to the Event that purchasers of a Ticket, taken generally, could reasonably expect. A change to the artists performing at the Event or to line up times shall not be a material change. 

  10. It is Your responsibility to ascertain whether the Event has been cancelled or re-scheduled and the date and time of the re-scheduled Event.  Where the Event is cancelled or re-scheduled, the Promoter will use its reasonable endeavours to notify You using the details You provided at the time of ordering.  The Promoter does not guarantee that You will be informed of such cancellation before the date of the Event. It is also Your responsibility to inform the point of sale from where You bought the Ticket of any change to the contact address, telephone number or email address You provided at the time of purchase.

  11. Where the Event is cancelled, rescheduled and You cannot or do not wish to attend the rescheduled Event or where there is a material change to the programme of the Event, You will be entitled to a refund in accordance with Condition 20.   

  12. “Force Majeure” means any cause beyond the Promoter’s control including, without limitation, act of God, war, insurrection, riot, civil disturbances, acts of terrorism, fire, explosion, flood, national mourning, theft of essential equipment, malicious damage, strike, lock out, weather, third party injunction, national defence requirements, acts or regulations of national or local governments.  Subject to the provisions of Condition 18, the Promoter will not be liable to You for failure to perform any obligation under the Conditions to the extent that the failure is caused by Force Majeure. 

  13. The amount of any such refund shall be the face value of the Ticket purchased (except where the Event takes place over several days and not all days are cancelled, in which case only a partial refund will apply, corresponding to the day(s) cancelled). Personal arrangements including, but not limited to, travel, subsistence and accommodation relating to the Event which have been arranged by You are at Your own risk and the Promoter shall not be liable for any loss of enjoyment, losses incurred from personal arrangements or wasted expenditure beyond the Ticket refund stated above.

  14. If Condition 19 applies, You must claim Your refund: (a) within 3 months of the cancelled or rescheduled Event, unless advised otherwise; or (b) as soon as possible and in good time before the materially changed Event takes place.  

  15. Whilst every effort is made to ensure that the full, advertised billed performances take place, the Promoter reserves the right to change the published bill and/or running times without notification.  This includes, but is not limited to, artists and billed attractions.
