1. Purview

These Terms & Conditions and Privacy Policy are between participants of the Duke’s Blues and Swing Dance Luxembourg association (organizer of the festival). By participating in the festival and entering the festival location you agree to these terms.

2. Registration

The registration for the courses and parties of the festival is completed through a registration system on the homepage: https://www.swingdance.lu/dukes-blues-2024/. By filling out and submitting this registration, the registering person is confirming their intent to participate in Duke’s Blues Festival 2024. Participants registering as a couple need to fill the form separately and put their partners’ name in the corresponding box.

Submitting the registration form on the website does not guarantee participation to the workshop courses. The number of available spots for each course is limited and it is determined by the organizers. In case all the spots in any given group have been filled or there is a high imbalance between leads and follows, registrants may be put on a waiting list or their registration might not be accepted.

After the organizers can confirm the participants’ registration, the participant will receive an email confirming his/her registration together with payment information. The event fee is to be paid within 10 days after the confirmation email is received. If within 10 days after receiving the confirmation email the registrant hasn’t proceeded with payment, his or her registration may be cancelled.

In case of inability to attend Duke’s Blues 2023, participants can transfer their booking to any other person of their choice of the same role (leader/follower) and level, as long as the organizers are informed about the transfer at least one week before the beginning of the event.

In case of cancellation communicated to the organizers before 1st April 2024, 75% of the participant fee will be refunded. In case of cancellation after 1st April 2024, no refund is possible. Business obligations, work- or business travels, illness, travel restrictions, vacation or the lack of childcare cannot be accepted as a reason for refunding the fee after the 1st April 2024.
