The policies set forth here are to protect the community and our event and make it enjoyable and safe for all. Everyone is expected to adhere to any policies set forth by the event and its producers, here and as published elsewhere. 

Sound Policy: Amplified sound is an integral part of a music and arts event such as ours. Artistic expression through the medium of sound is highly encouraged and appreciated by our community and organization, provided it does not threaten the event as a whole. Unfortunately, the cumulative and far-reaching effects of sound can potentially impact our neighbors. This sound policy is designed to protect the artistic freedom enjoyed by participants, whilst preventing any adverse impact on neighboring properties.

Note: All subs must be elevated off the ground. No exceptions. Elevating subs off the ground drastically reduces the distance noise will travel, be prepared to isolate subs from contact with the ground.

No SunBurn citizen may operate an amplified sound system within the event boundaries of SunBurn without permission from the department leads. All amplified sound must strictly adhere to the rules and regulations set forth in the SunBurn Sound Policy. Every amplified sound system must be declared at the gate and a Sound Sponsor must sign the Sound Release Form indicating that he/she will be responsible for ensuring that the sound system is operated in accordance with the SunBurn Sound Policy. Every Sound Sponsor must obtain a Sound Permit from a Sound Marshal and display it conspicuously near the sound system for the duration of the event. A specific sound pressure limit will be set prior to each year’s event and is subject to change at any time at the request of the event producers. Failure to comply with the SunBurn Sound Policy or failure to comply with explicit directives from Sound Marshals, Rangers, Regulator, or the producers will result in disciplinary action as outlined in the procedure section of the SunBurn Sound Policy. SPL levels are designed to protect the event from external complaints. However, this level may not be appropriate at the event during certain hours of the day or in certain locations/situations. In the spirit of community, lower SPLs can and may need to be negotiated due to internal conflicts within the Enchantment community. These internal negotiations are expected to be fair and reasonable with utmost respect given to artistic expression while also taking into account the needs of the greater community.

Fire and Open Flame Policy: Fire is one of our most highly regarded elements in our culture. However, we must ensure that all fires and open flames are safe and do not jeopardize our attendees or our land. Due to the confines of a treed space in the mountains no open fires are permitted in camping or other areas. We hope (subject to burn ban restrictions) to have two open communal fire pits available at the event. Other than these dedicated fire space no other  fires will be permitted.

Propane cooking vessels and propane fire pits are permitted. A fire extinguisher must be placed near to propane equipment. No fuel shall be stored withing 100 ft of any open flame. .

Animal Policy: Other than seeing eye dogs or other registered service animals, please leave your pets at home. This is non-negotiable.

Age Policy: You must be 18 years of age or with a parent or adult guardian to attend Enchantment. Children 12 and under are free with an adult. No-one under the age of 21 shall be provided with alcohol by any camp.

Vehicle Policy: All vehicles are subject to a $20 vehicle fee to minimize land impact. We want to discourage the unnecessary leaving and re-entry of vehicles from SunBurn. We also understand that there may be a need for participants to leave our event for a brief period and return. We will have a limited number of vehicle re-entry passes available at the gate inside the event. Should you need to leave, please come to the gate in advance to obtain a permit to drive through and return to SunBurn. We are accepting your generous $10 donations for the NM Burners Art Fund as a courtesy for providing re-entry. The monies from re-entry passes will go to support the art for our next event.

Refund Policy: There are no refunds on tickets once purchased. Tickets may be gifted, transferred, and sold to other community members. Should you purchase a ticket and not be able to attend, you may transfer your ticket for no more than face value to another individual. All we ask is that you let us know who will be attending in your place. There are no hard tickets and all tickets are will-call, and are processed at the gate upon arrival. A state or government issued ID will be required as proof of identity. All attendees must have a ticket.

Art Policy: We encourage all types of artistic expression, provided it does not threaten our community members or event. Large scale art must be registered prior to arrival for placement. The artist assumes all responsibility for ensuring the safety and integrity of their art. All art will be removed by the artists upon completion of the event.

Alcohol Policy: Should you bring alcohol for yourself or others, it is your responsibility to ensure those you share it with are of legal age. No one under the age of 21 may consume alcohol in the state of New Mexico, by law. Providing alcohol to those under 21 is a 4th degree felony in the state of New Mexico. The event provides no alcohol and the closest place to purchase alcohol is 45 minutes from the event.

Firearms Policy: No firearms are allowed inside our event. Leave the guns at home.

Fun Policy: You must have fun while at SunBurn. Lots of fun. This may be the most important policy of all.

By purchasing a ticket or attending Enchantment, you agree to comply with any policies set forth by the event (here and as published elsewhere) and agree to comply fully with all state and federal laws once inside the event. All policies are subject to change at any time by the discretion of the event producers and/or department leads and will be enforced. Violators will be ejected from the event immediately and LEO may be notified.
