Notwithstanding the terms and conditions of such ticketing agents which may apply to the sale of a Ticket for a particular Event, by purchasing and/or holding and/or being in possession of a Ticket or Tickets, the holder of the Ticket (“Ticket holder”, “you”, “your”) agrees to and is bound by these terms and conditions (“Ticketing Terms”).

Each Ticket you purchase from FS through a ticketing agent or through WS is intended to give you a revocable license (or right) to entry and attendance of the particular Event only to which the Ticket pertains. Each Ticket holder has a right to a seat or standing place in relation to the stage, of a value corresponding to that stated on the Ticket holder’s Ticket. FS and the Venue reserve the right to provide alternative seats or standing place to those specified on the Ticket.

2. A Ticket does not afford the Ticket holder the right to transport to the Venue, or parking, or merchandise, or any food or beverages at the Venue, unless otherwise stated.

If this condition is breached the Ticket may be cancelled without refund or compensation and the bearer of the Ticket may be refused entry or removed from the Venue.

5. Any Tickets bought from unauthorised agents or third parties are not valid and admission to an Event on the strength of such Tickets will not be permitted.

6. We reserve the right to restrict the sale of Tickets to a maximum number per person, per credit card and/or per household and to cancel any Tickets purchased in excess of this number.

Neither we, a ticketing agent, WS nor any other person shall have any liability to you to refund the purchase price of a Ticket in circumstances where an Event is cancelled due to circumstances beyond our reasonable control.

11. If an Event is rescheduled or cancelled, we will use our reasonable endeavours to notify you as soon as reasonably possible thereof (including notifying you of the details of any rescheduled Event) by publishing the details of the rescheduled or cancelled Event, as the case may be, on the website located at the domain name http://www.internationalbeerday.co.za (the “Website”) and by e-mail and short message service (“SMS”) notification to the contact details which you provide at the time of the purchase of Tickets. It is therefore important that you provide the ticketing agent or BCOS (whichever is applicable) with your correct contact details at the time of the purchase of Tickets. If the Event is to be rescheduled, you will be offered a Ticket for the rescheduled performance of the Event (subject to availability and you having provided us with correct contact details). Should you not wish to attend such a rescheduled performance of the Event, you will be required, for purposes of safety and security planning in respect of the Event, to notify the ticketing agent through which you purchased your ticket, or alternatively our customer service centre at +27 76 797 5137 or welove@coolshitinsa.co.za, of your intention to not attend that Event. You may give such notification by way of verbal confirmation, e-mail or SMS notification, which notification must be received by the date published on the Website and by e-mail and SMS notification to the contact details which you provide at the time of the purchase of Tickets. Should you give notification as stated above or if the Event is not rescheduled, you shall be entitled to a refund of the face value of the Ticket. If the relevant Event is only partially cancelled (eg if it is a multi-day Event and only one day is cancelled), we shall give you a partial refund corresponding to the proportion of the Event cancelled.

When ordering your ticket you MUST agree to the Event Terms and Conditions. Upon entering the event, you are once again agreeing to comply with the Event Terms and Conditions of the Event. Please read these carefully.

Terms and Conditions

Anyone entering any event hosted by Fresh State (Pty) Ltd (“FS”) must review these regulations, accept and comply with the conditions. If any terms of these general conditions are not followed, access and/or permanence at the event may be denied. Should you be asked to leave due to noncompliance with these terms and conditions, the entrance fee or ticket will not be refunded.

Access to Events

Upon arrival at the event, every person must be in possession of a valid ticket issued by the organiser or one of the approved FS ticketing outlets. To access the event, a ticket is required per person and will only be valid on the day(s) of the event as indicated on the ticket.

The minimum age limit to be allowed entry into the event will be as per the ticket. Minors will not be allowed to enter the events regardless of the presence of an adult, unless otherwise stated.

IMPORTANT: A valid proof of identification will be required upon request of security. Failure to provide valid identification will result refusal of access to events and no refunds will be given.

Your Ticket – Absolute customisation and uniqueness warranty of the ticket.

FS ensures total security of the financial operations and the absolute correctness and invulnerability of ticketing systems. Therefore, any occurrence of ticket duplicity will be understood as the lack of verification on the part of the buyer, which may result in the buyer’s access to the event being denied in case someone else produces a copy of the ticket and enters the festival before the buyer.

Tickets are only sold by means of the FS WS and authorised sales channels.

No refunds will be entertained in the event of duplicate/fraudulent tickets.


Any guest who has made others aware of their ticket and, therefore, put the content in jeopardy of copy or forgery, will not be allowed into the stipulated event as stated on the ticket. Please remember that if your ticket has been lost or stolen, you are not eligible for a change or reimbursement of your ticket. However, if proof can be provided FS will do its utmost best to provide a new ticket.

A valid ticket must be shown at the entrance of the event venue. The organiser and the official ticket vendor reserve the right to check the identity of all those who wish to attend any event. If requested by a member of security or staff, you must provide a valid identity document (“ID”). If you are not able to show a valid ID, your access to the event may be denied and you will not be eligible for a ticket fee refund.


Security Check

Access to the events is prohibited or refused to people who:

Are under the influence of alcohol, drugs or any other stimulant.
Have been banned from previous events, imposed by either the organiser or the administrative or legal authorities.
Are believed to show intent to disturb the peace or to provoke such a thing by inciting assault, hatred, racism, rage, etc.
Resist the control and non-systematic search by the event security guards and security services.
Refuse to declare objects that are considered to be dangerous or off-limits by the event’s security services.
Act in violation of the provisions of one or more articles of these internal regulations in any way, shape or form.

All ticket holders, who wish to enter the event must provide a ticket for validation if required. It is possible that you will be searched on entering the event, even if previously searched.

FS and staff can ask all ticket holders (of the same sex) to voluntarily submit themselves to a superficial inspection of clothing and luggage, in order to detect objects that may, when brought to the events, disrupt the course of the event, jeopardize the safety of others and disturb the peace.

FS reserves the right to confiscate these objects and refuse access to events without refunds.

Permitted and forbidden objects

You (or another person on your behalf) may not bring the following objects or items to the event:

Food or drink purchased outside event.
Drugs, paraphernalia, prescription medicine where the person does not have a prescription (to be shown on request) or is sharing with others and other products used for an unintended purpose.
People who require nutrients or medication for medical reasons (e.g. diabetes) must be in possession of a medical prescription with their name clearly listed.
