CANCELLATION, POSTPONEMENT AND ARTIST CHANGEa) Shutdown Festival may make alterations to aspects of the event which are not material in nature and no refunds will be available in respect of non-material alterations. A “material” change is a change to an Event which in the reasonable opinion of Shutdown Festival, makes the Event materially different to the Event which purchasers of the Ticket could reasonably expect. Changes to performance times, venues and live performers will not be a material change. A material change is judged by reference to the nature and billing of the event which is a music festival. This event is judged by reference to the overall theme rather than any individual act scheduled to appear. Shutdown Festival has multiple artists, the event name does not include reference to any specific act. In this case, no scheduled acts may be considered as headline acts, regardless of their relative fame or prominence in the billing.
b) In the event of a cancellation, postponement or material alteration of an Event you may be entitled to a refund in accordance with the terms and conditions or refund policy of the authorised Ticket Agent from whom you purchased your Ticket(s) and you must contact the Ticket Agent to request all refunds. No refunds will be issued directly to you by Shutdown Festival. Ticket Agents may not make a refund if you fail to follows the instructions provided within the timeframes notified in their terms and conditions.
