Metalesque Fest 2021 Waiver of Liability & Performer Contract


It will be required for ALL performers (virtual show and live show) to sign this waiver
before they are allowed to perform. Producers will be obtaining these signatures before

This contract covers items for both the live event and the virtual event marked below next to each section
for clarity.


“Metalesque Fest 2021” is a show that is operated by producers Sign of the Beast Burlesque.
Sign of the Beast Burlesque is responsible for payments to performers and paid staff
of Metalesque Fest 2021.


1. Covid Safety Protocol
(LIVE EVENT ONLY)
As a performer and/or staff person, I understand that I must follow all covid safety regulations.
Currently, the show venue (Dantes, Portland OR) requires that all people entering the building be fully
vaccinated OR produce proof of a negative covid test that has been administered within 48 hours of the
person entering the building. Additionally, the venue requires that all people entering the building wear a
face covering, regardless of vaccination status, unless they are actively eating or drinking.


Be prepared to bring proof of vaccination status or proof of a negative covid test within 48 hours of entering the building. Dantes will accept a paper or digital copy/photo on your phone as proof. Both clinic tests and home tests are acceptable.


As a participant in this live event, I agree with this current rule. I also understand that the rules may
change as of the October 2, 2021 show date, based on any updates in the policy set forth by the venue. I
understand that Sign of the Beast Burlesque producers will inform me ASAP if any policies change.
I understand that failure to meet these requirements as a live show participant will result in me being cut
from the show, and I understand that Sign of the Beast Burlesque will not bear any responsibility to pay
me the show guarantee, potential show bonus, nor will they be responsible for my travel or lodging
expenses.


2. Duties of Performer
(LIVE AND VIRTUAL EVENT)
As a performer in any program or event of MetalesqueFest, I recognize and
acknowledge there are certain risks of physical injury, and I agree to assume the full risk of
injuries, including but not limited to death, damages, or injury to my person or property (or
loss of property due to theft) that I may sustain as a result of participating in any activities
connected with or associated with such a program or any class associated with the Fest
I hereby represent and warrant that:
I have the physical ability and skill necessary for my performance and do not have any
limitation, condition, or problem which would inhibit my ability to participate properly and
safely. At all times when performing, I agree to limit my activities, as appropriate for my
level of conditioning, skill, and experience. I agree not to take any unreasonable risks while
performing or to cause any other persons present to take or be exposed to any
unreasonable risk or harm.
If I choose to interact physically with audience members while performing or at any time
during the programs or events of Metalesque Fest, I agree to assume the full risk of injury to that person or persons; including but not limited to death, damages, or injury to their person or property that may be sustained as a result of my actions.

If I become aware of any unusual hazard during the performance, I will immediately stop
performing and bring such hazard to the attention of the nearest Metalesque Fest
volunteer or employee, official or representative immediately.
Furthermore, I agree to follow any policies set by Metalesque Fest and its venue, officers, agents,
volunteers, employees, and independent contractors and agree to take full responsibility for
my behavior in addition to any damage I may cause to the venue facilities, equipment, or staff.
I give consent and permission to Metalesque Fest 2021 and its representatives, as
necessary in their discretion and judgment, to obtain on my behalf any emergency medical
attention and treatment in case of sickness, accident, or injury and to secure such medical
attention and treatment at my sole expense. In addition to the above, the following also applies for
specialty performances:
As a fire performer in any program or event of Metalesque Fest, I understand and
acknowledge the following rules set forth regarding fire performances:
a. All fire performers must meet with the venue’s fire safety attendant before their
performance in order for him/her to approve the implements and fuel for the
performance.
b. All fire performers must adhere to the rules of Portland City Code.
c. All fire performers must provide a “pink slip” from the City of Portland before their
performance. Note that the fire safety attendant is referenced as a “spotter” in City
of Portland materials.
d. All fire performers must provide the paperwork required by the city of Portland OR.
As an aerial/pole performer in any program or event of Metalesque Fest 2021, I understand
and acknowledge the following rules set forth regarding aerial/pole performances:
a. All aerial/pole performers must meet with the venue’s safety attendant/stagehand
before their performance in order for him/her to approve the implements used for
the performance and discuss proper rigging techniques pertaining to the venue.


3. Potential Show Cancellation
(LIVE EVENT ONLY)
I understand that due to the ever-changing status of the covid pandemic, it is possible that the live show
could be canceled by the venue. In the event of cancellation, I agree that Sign of the Beast Burlesque
does not owe me any payments (guaranteed or bonus) for a performance. I agree that Sign of the Beast
Burlesque does not cover travel, lodging, food, or any other expenses under any circumstances, including
in the event of show cancellation.
I understand that in the event of a live show cancellation, all booked live performers will be offered a spot
in the next Metalesque Fest LIVE SHOW ONLY and that this spot will only be available at the next
festival, and if I do not accept that offer it does not carry over into the year after that.
For example: If 2021 Fest is canceled by the venue, live performers will be offered a spot in the next Fest
(no reapplication or fees necessary), which will presumably happen in 2022. If you cannot accept that
spot in 2022, you forfeit the spot and application fee and will not be offered a spot in 2023 or the following
years.

or its venue, officers, agents, volunteers, employees, and independent contractors.
I further agree to indemnify and hold harmless the venue (Dantes) and Metalesque Fest 2021 and its
