Buku Music + Art Project Purchase Policy (effective as of September 30, 2013)
Transaction Information; Revocable License; Refusal of Admission
YOU MUST BE AT LEAST EIGHTEEN (18) YEARS OF AGE TO PURCHASE A TICKET TO AND/OR ATTEND (WITH A VALID PHOTO IDENTIFICATION) BUKU. ALL SALES ARE FINAL AND NON-TRANSFERABLE. NO REFUNDS, NO EXCHANGES, NO RESALE, NOT REDEEMABLE FOR CASH. The resale or attempted resale of any good, product or service at a price higher than that it was sold for is prohibited and if discovered will result in such good, product or service being voided without refund or other compensation. A ticket to BUKU or any other related perk may not be used for advertising, promotion (including sweepstakes, contests and giveaways), or other trade or commercial purposes without the express written consent of BUKU.
A ticket to BUKU is a revocable license. We reserve the right, without refund of any portion of the price paid or other compensation to you, to refuse admission or to eject any person from BUKU, and/or withdraw or refuse to begin services or provide goods to any person, who fails to comply with this Policy, the rules of an applicable third party, and/or applicable local, state or federal law or ordinance, in whole or in part, or whose conduct is deemed by us or the applicable third party as disorderly, annoying, illegal, vulgar, abusive, threatening, uncomfortable, aggressive, or out of compliance with this Policy or the applicable third party’s terms, conditions, rules or policies (all of the above in this sentence, collectively, “Removal Behavior”).
Search, Ejection and Termination
You and your belongings may be searched upon entry to, or otherwise in connection with your attendance at, BUKU. You hereby consent to such searches and forever waive any and all related claims that could arise. If you elect to withdraw such consent to such searches, you may be denied access to BUKU, or removed from BUKU, without refund or other compensation. Under certain facility rules, certain items may not be brought into certain events or premises, including, without limitation, alcohol, drugs, controlled substances, weapons of any kind (including toy weapons), professional cameras and recording devices, laser pointers, strobe lights, irritants, various forms of containers, and any other item noted as prohibited on the BUKU FAQs or other information released by BUKU. Breach of this Policy or any applicable third party’s terms, conditions, rules or policies will terminate your license to attend BUKU without refund or other compensation.
Cancelled or Postponed Events; Refunds
BUKU is a RAIN OR SHINE event. However, weather or any other factor may make BUKU impossible and/or unsafe to produce or complete, in whole or in part. If BUKU is rescheduled, and you will not be able to attend BUKU on the rescheduled date, you will be given an opportunity to request a refund prior to the rescheduled event date. A ticket to BUKU is not for a specific artist or aspect of BUKU. Artists, schedules, production elements, vendors, art exhibits, amenities, and all other aspects of BUKU are subject to change without notice and without grounds for refund, including, without limitation, the availability of the S.S. BUKU, which may become unavailable due to unworkable water levels or other weather conditions.
