We welcome your coverage and look forward to assisting you in any way that we can.

To apply for media credentials please:

  3. Please complete a separate form for each person from your organization.


  1. Credentials will be provided to journalists in accordance with space availability to members of the media who work for recognized media outlets.
  2. Due to the demand for credentials and the need to abide by festival, artist and venue guidelines, the Festival reserves the right to issue and/or deny credentials at any time and to request copies of past coverage if we are not familiar with your work.
  3. A separate form must be completed for each person from your organization.
  4. Due to capacity we reserve the right to limit the number of media passes issued per organization.
  5. Credentials are not transferable.
  6. Freelance writer/photographer applications will not considered without an official letter from the editor of the publication/media outlet that has retained you to cover the festival to review a concert and produce a story or photo coverage.
  7. Credentials are not provided to representatives from aggregator web sites.
  8. Requests from bloggers are reviewed on a one-by-one basis but are generally not approved unless the blogger is employed by a recognized media outlet.
  9. Due to capacity, we cannot issue media credentials to family members of media, or members of the media who work in sales, production or other non-reporter/journalist roles.
