1) The Band/Artist (Lodestone) will provide a full PA system and the musical equipment required for an event. Stage lighting will also be provided. But please note that the lighting is only for the stage and not for the full venue. The Bands equipment is not for use by guests unless previously agreed, and this is only at the band’s discretion.

2) A non-refundable deposit will be required to secure the booking, failure to comply will result in the date being made available to others. In the unlikely event there is an error in the booking process or the booking is cancelled due to Force Majeure we endeavour to refund the deposit and any other payments made to Lodestone.

3) The full fee is due on the day of the event before the band set up. We offer bank transfer, credit/debit card payment or cash options.

6) The hirer is to provide a suitable performing area. Unless otherwise agreed, the hirer must provide an electrical supply meeting the recommended requirements. For any outdoor events suitable dry cover must be provided off the floor. If in the event the staging is waterlogged and unsafe to perform, the band will not be held accountable and not be made to set up and perform. The full fee will still be due.

7) The Bands PLI (public liability insurance) has a limit of £5,000,000. A copy of the PLI certificate can be provided to any venue that requires it.

8) On occasion it may be necessary to use alternative musicians (dep’s) This is a back-up if any musician takes unwell, is injured, or for any other reason unable to be there. We have this as a security for the client. This allows us to guarantee that the band will not pull out due to the above reasons. There will be no reduction to the fee. A dep does not constitute grounds for cancellation.

9) Any amendments to original times and dates must be made at least 30 days prior to the engagement date. It is the responsibility of the engager to make sure the event runs as planned and on time, Under no circumstances will the Artist play beyond the agreed time. A late start does not constitute grounds for a late night or cancellation. The Agreement is strictly between the agreed hours.
