Please try to understand that it is essential to establish certain rules and compliance with them to have FFestivals run safely and to satisfaction of all participants. The organizers are responsible for rented buildings, equipment etc. The rules are established according to the rules of the Czech Fire Department, Police Department, local municipality and building owners.
Ignorance of the rules excuses no man.
If you have any doubts, see any error in the organization, witness breaking of the rules, have any wish or complaint, please speak to the organizers (in orange “STAFF” T-shirts and name tags). They will answer your questions and/or help you. Most problems can be fixed if they are announced early.
FFestival is held by fans for fans. Because of that, we demand better awareness, responsibility, independence and tolerance among all participants. We will part with those who don’t know how to behave, so we can ensure the FFestival is more enjoyable for rule-abiding and helpful participants.
