COVID-19 WARNING AND ASSUMPTION OF LIABILTY

Cape Cod Melody Tent, South Shore Music Circus, and Music Circus Productions (“Music Circus”) are committed to doing everything we can to keep our guests and employees as safe as possible while still providing the superb sound and entertainment experience we are known for.  

That Said:

ALL EMPLOYEES AT OUR VENUE HAVE BEEN VACCINATED. HOWEVER, COVID-19 IS AN EXTREMELY CONTAGIOUS DISEASE THAT CAN LEAD TO SEVERE ILLNESS AND DEATH. AN INHERENT RISK OF EXPOSURE TO COVID-19 EXISTS IN ANY PUBLIC PLACE REGARDLESS OF PRECAUTIONS THAT MAY BE TAKEN. ENTER AT YOUR OWEN RISK.

As such:

You, on your own behalf and on behalf of any accompanying minor(s), assume all risks, hazards, and dangers arising from or relating in any way to the risk of contracting a communicable disease or illness—including, without limitation, exposure to COVID-19 or any other bacteria, virus, or other pathogen capable of causing a communicable disease or illness, whether that exposure occurs before, during, or after the event, and regardless of how caused or contracted— and you hereby waive any and all claims and potential claims against Music Circus and its related entities —relating to such risks, hazards, and dangers arising from or related to attendance at events hosted by Music Circus.

NOTICE REGARDING ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER

The following contains an arbitration agreement and class action waiver, whereby you agree that any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of the products or services sold, distributed, issued, or serviced by us or through us, will be resolved by binding, individual arbitration, rather than in court, and you waive your right to participate in a class action lawsuit or class-wide arbitration (“Terms”).

We explain this agreement and waiver, along with some limited exceptions, in below:

ANY DISPUTE OR CLAIM RELATING IN ANY WAY TO YOUR USE OF THE SITE, OR TO PRODUCTS OR SERVICES SOLD, DISTRIBUTED, ISSUED, OR SERVICED BY US OR THROUGH US, WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING, INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION, RATHER THAN IN COURT, with the following exceptions:

  • You may assert claims in small claims court if your claims apply;
  • In the event that the arbitration agreement in these Terms is for any reason held to be unenforceable, any litigation against us (except for small-claims court actions) may be commenced only in a federal or state court located within Massachusetts, and we both consent to the jurisdiction of those courts for such purposes.

The arbitration agreement in these Terms is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (FAA), including its procedural provisions, in all respects. This means that the FAA governs, among other things, the interpretation and enforcement of this arbitration agreement and all of its provisions, including, without limitation, the class action waiver discussed below. State arbitration laws do not govern in any respect.

This arbitration agreement is intended to be broadly interpreted and will survive termination of these Terms. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to the extent permitted by law to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability, or formation of this Agreement, including, but not limited to, any claim that all or any part of this Agreement is void or voidable.

There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages) and must follow these Terms as a court would. For the avoidance of doubt, the arbitrator can award public injunctive relief.

To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to: Vincent Longo, Chief Executive Officer / Executive Producer.

The arbitration will be conducted by JAMS alternative dispute resolution services, under its Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures or, if applicable, its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures, and any applicable supplemental rules including its Consumer Arbitration Standards of Minimum Fairness. The JAMS Rules, and applicable forms, are available online at http://www.jamsadr.com.

We each agree that the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding, and that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. YOU AGREE TO WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT OR CLASS-WIDE ARBITRATION.

You agree that these Terms evidence a transaction involving interstate commerce and will be governed by and construed in accordance with federal law to the fullest extent possible.
