Discovery is more streamlined, and generally the dispute is resolved more quickly than would occur in court. 

 

How our Arbitration will work: 

Whoever believes they have a claim against the other party (You or us) will notify the American Arbitration Association, or another panel of arbitrators that meets the requirements set forth below and which we both agree upon (“AAA” or “Panel”), in writing that we have a dispute. You may be represented by counsel, but are not required to retain counsel if You prefer to represent Yourself.

 

Governing Rules and Law, Location of Arbitration. The Panel will apply the AAA Consumer Arbitration Rules (the “Rules”), the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”), and laws of the State of Colorado, where the Festival will occur, even if You live in another state and elect to come to Colorado for the Festival. The arbitration will happen within sixty (60) miles of the Festival location (which may include as an example Denver or Colorado Springs Colorado).  

 

Arbitrator Selection. There will be one arbitrator, selected according to the AAA Rules. Any panel selected other than the AAA must have no less than five (5) arbitrators on its panel with no less than five (5) years experience arbitrating. The Arbitrator selected must have at least five (5) years arbitration experience, or have been an arbitrator in less than 25 arbitrations. Arbitrators with entertainment and event experience are preferred but not required. Both parties may object to any specific arbitrator as provided in the AAA Rules. 

 

Arbitrator Role. The Arbitrator will make all decisions in the case, including whether the case must be arbitrated, the rules that apply to the arbitration, any discovery/investigation and other motions that will be permitted, the facts and applicable law, and the damages, if any, to be awarded. You and we will have an opportunity to present our sides of the Dispute, including any law or facts, to the Arbitrator who will then provide a reasoned award deciding all facts and law in the case. The decision of the Arbitrator is final with no right of appeal. 

 

Your Arbitration Hearing. If Your or our Dispute is for less than $25,000, the Arbitrator will decide this case based on a submission of documents only unless a party requests an in-person or telephonic hearing or the Arbitrator decides that a hearing is necessary. In lieu of an in-person hearing, the parties may agree to a telephonic or video conference hearing, and the Arbitrator may order a video conference in lieu of live hearing in the interests of justice, health and safety. 

 

Right to Small Claims Court. If Your or our dispute is within the jurisdiction of the small claims courts in Colorado, either party may choose to take the claim to that court instead of arbitration pursuant to the AAA Rules. Small claims must be brought within sixty (60) miles of the Festival venue (which includes Denver and Colorado Springs, Colorado, for example.) 

 

Proceedings in Arbitration.

Discovery will be limited to an exchange of documents unless the Parties agree or the Arbitrator finds that, considering the goals of arbitration of a just, speedy and economic resolution, additional documentary, interrogatory, or deposition discovery is required.  

The Parties may retain and present experts and conduct expert depositions in such cases. 

You or we may elect to hire a court reporter to record the hearing.

 

Award. The Arbitrator will issue a reasoned award, which will explain the decision but will not include findings of fact and conclusions of law. For contract disputes, the sole remedy for You is the cost of the Ticket You purchased, and no other damages, including punitive, consequential, penalty, fines or other damages unless required by statute. For personal injury disputes, damages are limited to out of pocket loss absent gross negligence or willful misconduct on the part of the Company Parties, unless mandated by statute. The Arbitrator may award attorneys fees to the prevailing party on a determination that the party prevailed on more than half of their damages or remedies sought. If fees are awarded, they may be awarded to counsel for the Party whether outside or inside counsel. 

 

Fees and Costs. The Company will pay administrative costs and consumer arbitration fees for claims that are based in contract or related to the rights and obligations of the parties under the Ticket sales. If Your claim is based on personal injury occurring during the Festival, each party will bear their own administrative costs and arbitrator fees.
