To apply for media credentials, please complete all sections of the official application form. Remember that this is only a request, and it may not be approved. Please specify which day(s) you are requesting access. When outlining your coverage plan, be as specific as possible. Media credentials will not be granted without sufficient advance coverage. Approved outlets generally receive a maximum of 2 press credentials, depending on capacity and outlet size. Being granted press access to a Global Dance event previously does not guarantee approval. If you fail to complete the agreed upon coverage then you will not be granted media access to future events. The deadline to apply is July 6, 2017. Requests made after the deadline will not be approved. You will be contacted by the festival no less than 2 weeks in advance if approved.
-You must be on editorial assignment with an established media outlet that publishes music, entertainment or event coverage. Because of the limited amount of credentials, freelance writers and photographers who are not on assignment will NOT be provided credentials. Editors must put in the request and include the writers in the application form.
-Photography websites, photographers and/or videographers looking to build a portfolio will NOT be credentialed. You must be on assignment. Point and shoot cameras will not be allowed in the photo pit.
-Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, YouTube are not considered eligible outlets for media credentials.
Media/press credentials are limited and only available to photographers and journalists with an existing medium. Credentials will not be awarded for personal purposes. Do NOT submit more than one request per publication. Please include all details within that request. We reserve the right to revoke your passes for any violation of your agreement, failure to conform to event policies or interference with the event operation in any way.
