Members of the Media serving as Emcee’s and DJ’s will be issued a backstage pass by a Medial Relations Coordinator to be worn along with their credentials. These will be distributed each day of the Festival for the stage your station is sponsoring and will not be transferrable. DJ’s will be contacted to make arrangements for equipment and any production needs.
Riverfest maintains an experienced On-Site Media Relations Team in order to provide you the greatest possible assistance. Media Credentials do not guarantee you access to backstage and other off-limits areas. Artist meet and greets are completely dependent on the artists’ management. To ensure access to necessary areas for pre-arranged interview, etc, please make sure you contact a Media Relations Coordinator IN ADVANCE to arrange an escort.
All photographers must sign a release form provided by the Riverfest Media Relations Committee prior to entering the site. The festival’s general audio/video/photography policy for stage entertainment, allows access for the first three songs from the pit. Some acts may prohibit audio/video/photography entirely by contract. Only members of the media utilizing audio/video/photography will be allowed in the pit. Video is strictly prohibited in any backstage area. Any further restrictions in the photo policy will be noted by the Media Relations Committee. Riverfest reserves the right to remove anyone from the site who ignores this policy.
No vehicles are allowed to enter or exit the site during festival operating hours. This policy will be strictly enforced! When possible, Riverfest Media Relations Coordinators will be happy to transport members of the media who have equipment to their desired location.
