Every attendee must read and sign the waiver before entering the festival.

Security and police will be checking.  Event runs rain or shine. Front-gate operates 24hrs per day. Front-gate staff cannot hold tickets for people, grant temporary access, make additions or changes to the guest list, or bargain with the price. Wristbands supplied at gate must be worn at all times. Children aged 12 and under are free but must be accompanied by a responsible parent or legal guardian who by purchasing a ticket, agrees to take on full responsibility for the child's welfare.  Only purchase tickets from authorized ticket outlets or trustworthy individuals.

Guest-list inclusion must be confirmed by a Katalyst Events/Motion Notion manager (Suwannee Hodges, James Katalyst, or Kevin Harper) in writing or email before July 1. It is best to bring printed email conversations as proof of guest-list inclusion in case of any problems at the gate.  No other person or group has the authority to add names to the guest-list other than one of these three people. Picture ID is required on entry to confirm each guest's or performer's identity.  We prefer each performer and his/her guest arrive in the same vehicle or at the same time. If a performer's guest will arrive in a separate vehicle or separate time from the performer one of the managers needs to be given that guest's full name via email prior to July 1.  No changes can be made after July 1 or at the gate. Anyone not on the guest-list will need to pay the full entry fee or present a valid ticket to be granted entry.  People who were, "supposed to be on the guest-list" but were forced to pay in error should ask for a receipt and will be given a refund after the event if they mail the receipt and explanation to the Motion Notion office at 305 4625 Varsity Drive NW, Calgary, AB, T3A 0Z9 within 30 days.
