Volunteer Form

I understand that all visitors to the festival site will possibly be exposed to inherent hazards such as fire ants, other biting insects, ticks, poison ivy and other such plants, venomous snakes, vehicles entering and leaving the site, sunburn, windstorm and lightning, the nearby North Edisto River, and other such safety risks. I will do my part along with all other festival volunteers to be aware of these possible hazards and to promptly report and advise visitors or other volunteers of any safety risk that I might observe. I assume the risk of my exposure to any such risk, and I release and will hold harmless and indemnify the festival organizers, promoters, landowners, and other volunteers from any claim for any damage or injury that I might sustain while serving as a volunteer at the Edisto Island Bluegrass Festival.
