Tickets and vehicle passes are non refundable even if the Event is terminated early or canceled, or entry conditions are modified, due to harsh weather, acts of nature, pandemic, governmental regulation, the failure to obtain required governmental permits, conditions beyond Do LaB’s control, or any other force majeure event described above. Management reserves all rights not expressly granted to the Bearer by these terms. Please read our Ticketing FAQ for more information.
The following items are prohibited inside the Event venue, facility and premises: pets or animals of any kind with the exception of registered service animals cleared through Do LaB’s ADA program, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) or drones of any size, guns or weapons of any kind, fireworks or explosives, laser or handheld laser pointers, any drugs classified as illegal by the local municipality, the State of California or the United States federal government, excessive amounts of alcohol that exceed what is deemed to be for personal use, live plants, and any other item Management deems to be inappropriate for the Event or that may present a potential safety risk.
Bearer and Bearer’s belongings may be searched for prohibited items and non-ticket holding individuals upon entry into the Event, and Bearer consents to such searches and waives any related claims that might arise against any Released Parties. If the Bearer elects not to consent to such searches, the Bearer will be denied entry into the Event.
Reservation of Rights
Management reserves the right to refuse admission to or eject any person whose conduct is deemed by Management, at Management’s sole discretion, to be undesirable, including, without limitation, disorderly conduct, use of vulgar or abusive language toward Event staff or other attendees, or failure to follow Management or venue or facility rules and directions. Undesirable conduct of any of the types expressly listed above will automatically terminate this license and all rights of the Bearer. The exercise of Management’s ejection rights hereunder does not entitle the Bearer (or Purchaser) to a refund of the ticket price or any part thereof. The ticket is a revocable license and admission may be refused upon refunding the face amount of the ticket, at Management’s discretion.

Do LaB generally permits the use of Event-related intellectual property, without payment of any license fee, on materials that are given away at or in connection with the Event (“Gift Materials”), with the following conditions: (1) Do LaB may, for any reason in its discretion, determine that such use is not in keeping with Do LaB’s quality control, and if so, all such materials shall no longer be distributed; and (2) no Gift Materials may be sold (including to recoup the cost of producing them), exchanged for something of value, or distributed in any manner in which the Gift Materials are likely to be sold or exchanged for something of value.

Food and Food Vendors
Bearer understands that food will be sold at the Event. Each of the Released Parties bears no responsibility and will be held harmless for the contraction of or additional issues arising from food borne illnesses, food allergies or any other issues arising from the distribution, sale or consumption of food at the Event. Further, each of the Released Parties will be held harmless for any issues with food brought in by the Bearer or any other attendees.
Bearer understands that Bearer must bring enough food, water, shelter, and first aid to last the duration of the Event in a potentially harsh environment. See the Camping FAQ for more information and packing guidelines.
ALL VEHICLES DRIVEN INTO THE EVENT MUST HAVE A CAR CAMPING OR RV PASS DISPLAYED IN THE WINDSHIELD. Bearer understands that a vehicle pass only grants the ability to drive a vehicle into the Event site and directly to the camp location as directed by Event staff and that a vehicle pass does not grant any additional on-site driving privileges. UNAUTHORIZED DRIVING WITHIN THE EVENT SITE IS PROHIBITED. Each stand-alone vehicle driven through the Event gate must have a vehicle pass. (Trailers and art cars on trailers do NOT require a vehicle pass.) Management reserves the right to subject the use of vehicle passes to further terms and conditions, which would be published on the Site and/or at the Event.
Bearer understands that vehicle passes are not Event tickets and do not grant any person entry into the Event without a separate Event ticket. Likewise, the purchase of an Event ticket does not include the right to drive a motor vehicle into the Event or reserve a vehicle pass for that Bearer. Bearer understands that they may not purchase ONLY a vehicle pass; to purchase a vehicle pass, Bearer must also purchase at least one Event ticket. Bearer understands that if they (or Purchaser) purchase only a vehicle pass, the order may be canceled. No ticket refunds will be issued because the Bearer (or Purchaser) neglected or was unable to acquire a vehicle pass from Do LaB. To help mitigate traffic issues, Management reserves the right to limit the number of car camping and RV camping passes available for the Event, and the number of vehicle passes an individual may purchase. See the Camping FAQ for more information.
The Event is a “pack it in, pack it out” event and we strive to have zero impact on the land used or possessed during the Event. Bearer agrees to use only designated trash and/or recycling receptacles prior to, during and after the event. Bearer agrees under no circumstance to leave trash or recycling in the Event confines or anywhere surrounding the venue. Do LaB asks that you not bring single serve plastic bottles into the Event. Trash or recycling may not be buried, burned or disposed of in any body of water. Violation of these terms may lead to immediate expulsion from the Event.
Vending without Authorization
Bearer understands that commercial vending of any kind, including without limitation, the provision of any goods or services delivered to or at the Event for a prepaid fee, is prohibited except as authorized by Do LaB. No sponsorship, on site marketing, sampling, coupon/product distribution, or other promotional/advertising activity may be conducted at the Event (inclusive of parking lots), absent Do LaB’s prior written approval in each instance.

No minor will be allowed to enter the Event without a parent or court designated legal guardian (paperwork must be provided to Do LaB proving such guardianship) over the age of 25. All minors must purchase a ticket at the box office prior to entering the Event. No previously purchased ticket will be refunded if minor tickets are sold out at the box office.

These Terms and Conditions shall be governed by and enforced according to the laws of the State of California without regard to any rules relating to conflicts of laws. Bearer understands that any claim or dispute arising out of or in connection with these Terms and Conditions must be brought exclusively in the federal or state courts located in Los Angeles, California, and Bearer will submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purpose of litigating all such claims or disputes.

Further, the provision that has been deemed to be invalid or ineffective shall be enforced to the greatest extent permitted by law. The heading at the beginning of each section is for reference purposes and no way defines the scope or extent of such paragraph.
Bearer understands that these Terms and Conditions may be changed by Do LaB prior to the Event, and if so, the revised Terms and Conditions will apply to the Bearer. The most current version can be found here. Bearer’s use of a ticket, wristband or other entry credential for entry to the Event signifies Bearer’s binding agreement to the Terms and Conditions in effect at the time of Bearer’s entry to the Event.
