Participants must choose one of the offered options within 14 days after the festival's cancellation, or their entitlement to a refund will expire. Personal reasons such as illness or requirements from employers on the participant, or travel restrictions within Germany imposed by governments and authorities, do not justify a claim for ticket return and refund.
