MEDIA CREDENTIAL PICK-UP
MEDIA FILING AREA
RiverFest does not assist in arranging interviews with performers. Reporters bear the sole responsibility of arranging interviews through artist publicists. As a convenience, RiverFest will provide, upon request, a list of artists' publicists to qualified media outlets. If permission is granted, the reporter must confirm all arrangements with the publicist including notification of approval to the artist's tour or road manager who will provide the reporter access to the interview at the Festival. Approved interviews will require artists' management to supply passes and credentials to the approved reporter. Those approved passes will be distributed at 'ARTIST WILL-CALL' located at the River Market entrance of the Festival. RiverFest assumes no responsibility for artist's guest lists and its omissions. Without proper clearance, RiverFest DOES NOT provide backstage access for artist interviews.
Our press team will notify photographers at the festival of any further restrictions or modifications, and occasionally additional photography release forms must be signed by photographers before extended access is granted. Photographers who are granted a media credential and photo pass must agree to abide by all festival policies.
