Prizes:  One (1) prize will be made available in the Sweepstakes.  The prize consists of up to FOUR (4) One Day General Admission Tickets to the 2020 McDowell Mountain Music Festival (M3F™; “Festival”) in Phoenix, AZ  March 6, 2020 to March 8, 2020, ONE (1) $100.00 Gift Card (issuer of Gift Card to be determined by Sponsor; Gift Card is subject to terms and conditions of use as indicated thereon/provided therewith), up to FOUR (4) Hydro Packs (i.e., empty water bottles) and TWO (2) portable mobile device chargers. **Each of winner’s guests must be 21 years of age or older.  If winner does not have three (3) guests accompany him/her to Festival  for any reason (including failure of guests to comply with the liability/publicity release requirement, as discussed below), he/she will receive only one (1) ticket and one (1) hydro pack for each guest that provides their liability / publicity release form, and no alternate prize or compensation will be awarded.  Winner is solely responsible for all other expenses not specifically set forth herein, including but not limited to transportation/parking, overnight hotel stay (if desired), and incidentals. Prize details not specified herein shall be determined solely by Sponsor.  Alcohol is not awarded as part of the prize. Approximate Retail Value (ARV): up to $550.00.

Tickets are only valid for admission to the Festival on the corresponding date as selected by winner: winner may choose whether to use the Ticket to attend the Festival on March 6, 7 or 8.  But, winner and all guests must attend the Festival on the same date.  If winner cannot attend the Festival on any of the three (3) dates,  the prize will be forfeited without compensation of any kind and an alternate winner may be selected (time permitting); if guest(s) cannot attend the Festival on the same date as the prize winner, no ticket(s) or hydro pack(s) will be awarded for such unavailable guest(s) and winner will not receive an alternate prize or compensation of any kind. Tickets may be awarded in electronic (“e-ticket”) or print form in Sponsor’s sole discretion; and, if the latter, winner and guests may perhaps be required to pick up the tickets at “will call” window of Festival venue on date of attendance by presenting valid, government-issued photo identification  and/or other proof of identity as mandated by Festival  venue. If winner or guest(s) does not have access to a compatible mobile device, ticket(s) will be awarded in print form. Tickets are subject to venue restrictions and other terms of use as indicated thereon. Tickets are NOT for re-sale. If Festival is held on date chosen by winner (i.e., March 6, 7 or 8),  but ticket(s) are unused for any reason, no alternate prize or compensation will be awarded.

The Festival is a rain-or-shine event.  Re-entry is allowed with wristband issued by McDowell Mountain Music Festival Inc., the Festival organizer. Winner/guests cannot claim any charitable deduction or like tax benefit in conjunction with receipt and use of ticket to the Festival.

Winner and guests must conduct themselves at all times in conjunction with Festival attendance in a socially responsible, respectful and appropriate manner and, should winner and/or guest(s) fail to do so, prize may be immediately terminated without compensation of any kind and the Sponsor may pursue other legal sanctions against the winner and/or guest(s).

Winner Determination:  The winner will be determined in a random drawing on  March 3, 2020 by Agency (an independent, third party judging agency) whose decisions will be final in all matters relating to this Sweepstakes.   Odds of winning will be determined by the total number of eligible entries received.  The winner will be notified by telephone or text message on March 3, 2020 beginning at approximately 9:00 a.m. MST. It is the sole responsibility of the entrant to be available at the designated telephone number at such time on March 3. Agency will make commercially reasonable efforts to notify potential winner at designated time on March 3. Agency and Sponsor disclaim any and all liability under any legal theory for unsuccessful efforts to notify  potential winner. If potential winner cannot be located or does not respond to attempt to be notified within Six (6) hours, prize will automatically be forfeited and an alternate winner may be selected at Sponsor’s sole discretion (time permitting).  To receive prize, potential winner must sign a declaration of eligibility, liability release and publicity release (where lawful) within ONE (1) day of notification (or such shorter period as may be indicated in winner notification material) or prize will be forfeited and an alternate winner may be selected, at Sponsor’s sole discretion (time permitting). Each of winner’s guests must also sign a liability and publicity release (where lawful) within ONE (1) day of notification of winner (or such shorter time as may be indicated in winner notification). If a guest fails to do so for any reason, winner’s prize will exclude such guest with the corresponding ticket and hydro pack not being awarded nor will the winner receive any alternate prize or compensation in conjunction therewith. Winner and each guest each must also supply a valid driver’s license (or other government-issued photo identification) in conjunction with return of declaration of eligibility, liability release and a publicity release (where legal) [for winner] or liability release and publicity release (where legal) [for guests]. Winner and guests agree that an electronic signature/affirmation or facsimile signature on declaration of eligibility, liability release and publicity release (where legal) [for winner] or liability release and publicity release (where legal) [for guest] shall have the same legal effect as an original, hand-signed document. However, Sponsor may condition award of prize to winner (or provision of  ticket and hydro pack to winner’s guest[s]) upon provision of the original of the applicable legal document.   Except where prohibited, acceptance of prize constitutes winner’s consent to use of his/her name, likeness and biographical data for advertising and promotional purposes without additional compensation.

By accepting the prize, winner waives the right to assert as a cost of winning said prize, any and all costs of redemption or travel to redeem said prize and any and all liability that might arise from redeeming or seeking said prize.  All costs and expenses associated with prize acceptance and use that are not specified herein are the sole responsibility of the winner.  Winner also accepts sole responsibility for any miscellaneous costs relating to acceptance of prize.
