    SPECIAL NOTE (Photo Passes)

    Photo Passes will be available in limited quantity. We are not able to grant all media photo passes because of safety issues and concerns within the photo pits. Preference will be granted to major print publications and highly trafficked web outlets. Press Passes will allow individuals to enter the festival grounds with professional cameras, and will permit you to photograph the festival, even the artists on stage, but will not grant access to the photo pits.

    SPECIAL NOTE (Video)

    Video of performances is subject to artist approval and will be limited to the first 60 seconds of the first two songs of any given set. All video taken on festival grounds will require an escort from a member of the Governors Ball Media Team. One exception being interviews with Artists filmed in the Media Compound, which will not require an escort. Due to the physical limitations of our staff we will not be able to provide escorts for all interested parties. We will make an effort to assist in this capacity to the best of our abilities.

    SPECIAL NOTE (On Professional Conduct)

    If granted Press Passes to the 2013 Governors Ball Music Festival, you hereby agree to conduct yourself in a professional manner befitting a member of the media. If at any time your behavior on festival grounds is deemed a danger or distraction to festival attendees, staff, performers, or fellow peers in the media, Governors Ball reserves the right to revoke your credentials and escort you from the festival grounds.
