NB: If another venue can host the performance in the allocated time, but no agreement of postponing the event could be found, the performance shall be canceled, and the Client fully reimbursed.

NOTE: Only if the incapacity of the Artist, Management, Client or the Host is related to a force majeure event (and justified as such), then ALL PAYMENT, made prior by the Client to the Management, shall be fully reimbursed, unless under the agreement to postpone the performance, in which case, the payment shall be kept, ensuring the future performance.

All force majeure events shall be examined and justified by one or the other parties in order to verify that it is indeed a case of force majeure. If the case is proven, any expenses, prior to the performance, invested by either party shall not give rise to any reimbursement.

Except in the case of violation by the Client or the Host: all travel expenses (such as train, plane, boat tickets…) bought to ensure the performance (travel of the Artist and their participants), and whose tickets are non-refundable, will be lost (as they were included in the deposit rate.

If the performance is canceled by one or the other party, without any prior explanation, or in a case that is not categorized as being a force majeure event, like those mentioned above, the party that wished to cancel the performance shall pay a compensation to the other party, in addition to the refund of all the annexed expenses and transportation expenses caused by the performance.

a) Artist (Service Provider)

If the Artist is incapacitated, the deposit paid by the Client to the Management, shall be fully refunded. The Client may appeal against the Artist to claim a compensation.

If a deposit of 50% of the total amount was paid by the Client beforehand, the Management shall owe to the Client 100% of the total amount mentioned in the contract. If the total amount mentioned in the contract was paid beforehand, the Management shall owe to the Client 150% of this amount.  

c) Client (Service User)

-Up to 12 months, from the date of the event: 10% of the total amount on the bill shall be kept.
– Up to 6 months, from the date of the event: 25% of the total amount on the bill shall be kept (= half of the paid deposit)

b) Other type of postponement
