Good contract, but I'd probably re-word it to sound less legal-ese. The reason is that when people see words they recognize they tend to pay more attention. With unfamiliar words their eyes tend to glaze over.

Here's an off-the-cuff re-word:

"Performers hereby license the use of photographs, recordings, film etc. of their activities to to the company to promote the event. However, images and recordings MUST be provided to the performers for their own use as well. The performers do not give up any rights to the use of these images and recordings."

What I'm saying is that plain English is more easily understood, and also tends to hold up better in a legal dispute.
