We take no responsibility for the security of your equipment, staff, cash or personal belongings at any time. The Venue requires exclusivity for the sales of all alcoholic beverages, energy drinks, sodas and water.

Stalls are for anyone looking to sell non-consumable goods on site. This can be from jewellery to clothes. We are open to suggestions, even having a Kinyozi or Tattoo parlor on site would be amazing! The more that a stall adds to the festivals eccentricities the better!
