Festival Rules: New for 2023!

We’ve tried to simplify our rules, by keeping the Festival’s GENERAL RULES with the Discipline-Specific rules.
Table of Contents is ‘clickable’ so you can quickly jump to any general rule, or to your discipline’s specific rules.
All participants must follow both the General Rules, plus their Discipline-Specific rules.
