The undersigned agrees to hold NFF entirely free from any liability, including financial responsibility, for injuries incurred, regardless of whether injuries are caused by negligence. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW, THE UNDERSIGNED KNOWINGLY AND VOLUNTARILY RELEASES NFF FROM ANY AND ALL CLAIMS, DEMANDS, LOSSES, LAWSUITS, DAMAGES AND EXPENSES ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO ANY INJURY OCCURRING DURING THE RENDITION OF SERVICES OF THE UNDERSIGNED.

VOLUNTARY PARTICIPATION: I acknowledge that I am 18 years old or older and am participating voluntarily in the Newport Festivals Foundation, Inc. volunteer program, and not as an employee. I understand that as a volunteer I will not be paid for my services, and will not be covered under any insurance programs, including medical, property, workers comp, and liability insurances. NFF has the right to end my volunteer commitment at any time with or without cause, and to require me to leave the festival site immediately if I violate any volunteer program policies and/or festival rules and/or policies.
I also acknowledge the risks involved in volunteering at an outdoor music festival on rugged state park lands at Fort Adams State Park in Newport, Rhode Island. Additionally, I warrant and represent that I do not have any conditions (physical or otherwise) that might increase my likelihood of experiencing injuries while engaging in this voluntary activity.
By signing below, I acknowledge that I waive and forfeit all right to bring a suit against NFF for any reason arising out of any injury or damage that I might suffer as a result of my participation in the festival. In return for volunteering, and as full compensation for my volunteer services, I will receive entry to the Newport Folk Festival for three days and one Official Newport Folk Festival Volunteer T-Shirt. I will make every effort to obey safety precautions as listed in writing and as explained to me verbally, including but not limited to, wearing closed-toe shoes, providing my own refillable water bottle, arriving to my shift sober, abstaining from alcohol/drugs while working, and only wearing my volunteer shirt during shifts. I will ask for clarification when needed.
