A safe electrical supply must be provided. All outside situations (Marquees / Outbuildings) must be dry and undercover and made safe for electrical use and insulated from the ground. Ensure that there is sufficient TOTAL electrical power available for all of the service equipment and other contractors using the facilities.
  3. A minimum clear floor space is required of 2.5 Metres x 2 Metres with a head height of 2.2 metres. With a minimum of 2 x 13 amp power sockets within 5 metres of the set up area. If other additional entertainment is booked adequate floor space must be available for all the performers and changing facilities provided if required.

  5. In the event of any damage to or loss of any equipment or materials provided by the DJ for the purpose of the performance by any occurrence or by person/s on the premises, the booker shall be liable to pay in full for the repair or replacement cost of equipment and the hire of necessary equipment or materials during replacement time, and to compensate for any loss of work due to that damage or loss.
  6. The booker realises that whilst we have excellent DJ back up in place and every reasonable safeguard is assured, we cannot be held responsible for the weather or logistic problems, any DJ illness, sudden malfunction or breakdown of any electrical equipment, as this is an unavoidable occurrence and is outside of our control. We will, however, make every reasonable effort to rectify the situation. In the extremely unlikely occurrence of a non-performance or if a total failure occurs, the booker will be refunded the total fee in full. In this situation this will be the full extent of our liability to the booker no other compensation will be made.
  7. Any delayed set up time or subsequent delayed start time due to the overrun of any prior proceedings or of situations being outside of our control will not warrant any extension of the stated finish time or any fee reduction. However, at the sole discretion of the DJ and with the permission of the venue management, an extension of these performing times may be made. The DJ will charge an additional fee. This fee must be paid in cash to the DJ before any extra time commences.

In these circumstances no refund will be given.
