My name, image, likeness, photo, bio, voice and audio/visual footage can be used by the Town of Collingwood in perpetuity without compensation or payment.

I agree to read the FULL version of the rules and regulations upon receiving confirmation of my participation. Failure to read and follow the rules will not be accepted as an excuse. 

By submitting this form, I provide my implied consent to the Town of Collingwood to schedule the following appearances, on my behalf, and I will fulfill those obligations as set forth in my Arrival Schedule:

  • One (1) non-paid performance as part of my commitment as a Participant
  • One or two songs as times permits, live with the Festival band at the Awesome Street Party on Friday, July 26th

The Town of Collingwood in no way guarantees a paid performance opportunity to me.

I accept that should a paid performance opportunity be secured on my behalf, I agree to accept the “festival” performance fee specified and payable from the venue directly. In the alternative, the Town of Collingwood shall provide me with a list of registered venues, upon request, so that I can personally contact venues and secure a performance, if available.

I understand it is my sole responsibility to secure payment for my services from the venue, without assistance from the Town of Collingwood.

I agree to inform the Town of Collingwood if I am approached with a performance opportunity, by an unregistered venue, in an effort to register the venue so that I can legally perform there and not jeopardize the Town's license agreement with Elvis Presley Enterprises, Inc.

I accept and understand that performing at an unregistered venue has legal implications to the Town of Collingwood, under its existing license agreement with Elvis Presley Enterprises, and could result in legal consequences to me personally and to the venue that breached their responsibility with the Collingwood Elvis Festival.
