In consideration of being allowed to participate in and attend the Blazing Swan event (the “Event” or the “Blazing Swan Event”), you must agree to comply with any and all rules, regulations, terms and conditions of the Blazing Swan Event, including but not limited to the following:
Tickets and Refunds
Every participant in attendance at the “Event” is required to hold a valid ticket.
A change in personal circumstances of the Ticket Holder does not entitle the return or the exchange of the ticket.
Tickets will not be refunded under any circumstances, including but not limited to, the possible non-appearance of any particular group expected by the Ticket Holder, a change to the advertised venue of the “Event”, or any adverse weather conditions.
Blazing Swan is not liable for acts of God, the weather, strikes, protests, or actions taken by government agencies and similar causes. You understand that tickets are non-refundable even if the “Event” is terminated early or cancelled, or entry conditions are modified, due to harsh weather, acts of nature, governmental regulation, the failure to obtain relevant permits, or conditions beyond Blazing Swan’s control.
Notwithstanding the above, Blazing Swan has contingencies in place to endeavour to provide a refund to ticket holders in the “Event” of cancellation, subject to a successful claim against Blazing Swan Incorporated’s Cancellation Insurance. If a refund is able to be made to ticket holders in the “Event” of a cancellation, the timing of such a refund will be after all necessary processes have been followed, which may take several months. Blazing Swan makes no guarantee on the timing of any refund.
By purchasing a ticket to the “Event”, you agree and acknowledge that you can afford to purchase that ticket and such a purchase will not cause a financial hardship to you or your family, whether the “Event” proceeds or not.
Ticket holders may be asked to show photo identification along with their ticket upon entry to the “Event”. The name on the ticket must match the photo ID of the person attending the “Event”.
General Entry tickets may not be resold above face value. If a ticket is resold then ownership must be transferred to the purchaser using the ticket transfer system provided by our ticketing vendor. Once the transfer is complete the original ticket will not be valid for entry to the “Event”. Blazing Swan reserves the right to cancel any ticket which has been sold above face value.
On arrival at the “Event”, ticket holders will be given a wristband which must be secured on the body for the duration of the “Event”. If your wristband becomes damaged or unwearable, a replacement wristband will be issued from Event HQ upon presentation of the existing wristband and ticket. A person at the “Event” without a secured wristband will be presumed not to hold a valid ticket and may be asked to leave.
Lost, stolen or damaged tickets will not be replaced.
Tickets are revocable licenses that may be revoked by Blazing Swan for any reason including, without limitation, resale for above face value, purchasing more than stated limits, assisting others with unauthorised or un-ticketed entry to the “Event” , breach of these Terms and Conditions, or conduct deemed by Blazing Swan to be unacceptable which includes but is not limited to conduct likely to threaten or cause harm to any other individual or disrupt the safe or compliant operation of the “Event”.
Blazing Swan reserves the right to add, withdraw or substitute any elements of the program or vary the advertised Event ticket prices or patron capacity at any time.

The following items are prohibited on the Event site without prior approval and pre-event registration by Blazing Swan: firearms, weapons, pyrotechnics, unregistered lasers, unregistered drones, unapproved vehicles, dogs or pets (assistance animals excepted).
Carers and Assistance Animals
Participants at the “Event” who require the assistance of an approved carer (being a person who provides personal care, support and assistance to another individual who needs it because that other individual is a person with disability, who holds a WA Companion Card or equivalent) or a registered assistance animal may be accompanied by their bona fide carer or assistance animal as required.
Every person at the “Event” is required to hold a valid ticket and comply with all terms and conditions and policies, whether they are a volunteer, carer or otherwise. If you require the assistance of an approved carer in order to attend the “Event”, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to make enquiries about carer tickets.
Because pets are not permitted, if you require your assistance animal with you in order to attend Blazing Swan, we require that you pre-register your assistance animal by sending an email to email@example.com in order for us to plan with you for your arrival and notify Gate staff of your attendance with an assistance animal.
We warn all participants that the “Event” venue often presents unforgiving physical environments for humans and animals alike. Inclement weather, fire, loud noises, crowds and flashing lights are all common, and if any of these would be too uncomfortable or pose a risk for either you or your service animal we ask that you carefully consider these factors as you decide whether to participate, with or without your assistance animal.
If you bring an assistance animal to the “Event”, you are required to ensure:
a. the animal does not pose a risk or threat to any other person or assistance animals at the “Event” ;
b. the health and safety of that animal at all times;
c. the animal is in your control, or the control of a person known to you, at all times, which generally requires that the animal be on a leash or harness or in an appropriate enclosure.
