Takeover cannot assume any liability for the actions and oversights of third parties, including event promoters, sponsors, and venue operators.

In response to exhibitors driving recklessly and creating public disturbances during previous Takeover events, we have implemented a traffic light warning system going forward. Takeover encourages members of the public to document any disruptive behaviour in the form of photos, videos, or registration plates, to send to the Takeover team for review. Following a thorough review of the provided evidence, Takeover reserves the authority to either issue a warning or impose a permanent ban from the event, depending on the severity of the incident. For more information on this, please see “Traffic Light Warning System” on our website. This will also be pinned on our social media platforms in the run-up, and for the duration of the event.
