TO APPLY FOR MEDIA CREDENTIALS, CAREFULLY READ THE FOLLOWING
Working journalists and photographers over the age of 21 may apply online, no later than five
business days prior to the requested event. Only one application should be completed by each

applications are carefully screened. Access to the artist(s) and rules during a performance are
most typically dictated by artist’s management.

event. A very limited number of media credentials are available per event. Any attempt to
provide false information or misrepresent yourself or an organization, for the purposes of
attaining media credentials, may result in permanently being banned from receiving credentials
