5. I’M A REVIEWER, DO I GET A PASS?
All reviewers will be issued with a wristband which grants general admission access to the festival site. Any access above and beyond general admission is at the discretion of Field Day.
6. I’M A PHOTOGRAPHER, WHAT ACCESS DO I HAVE?
There is a strictly limited number of pit access photo passes for each event. ALL photographers accredited with a media wristband must complete and sign a release form prior to the event, or when collecting their accreditation at the festival.
Accredited photographers have access to the general admission areas of the site and the photo pit in front of each stage for the first three (3) songs of each artist unless otherwise advised by Field Day event staff. Please note the use of flash photography is not permitted at any time.
Closed shoes are to be worn at all times and directions and or requests of the publicity team, security and/ or any event staff at any given event must be followed. Not wearing closed in shoes will result in denied access to all photo pits.
There’s no media area on site at Field Day, however there are various charging stations around the festival site. We do recommend that photographers wishing to file photos throughout the day bring their own USB wireless equipment.
Field Day is not responsible for any media equipment.
There is strictly no backstage or side of stage access for any photographers or reviewers under any circumstances.
7. WHERE DO I COLLECT MY PASS FROM?
All passes and reviewer tickets are to be collected by showing photo ID from the Guest/Media box office (unless the Field Day publicity team has advised you of other arrangements) which is located just outside the main public entrance of the event.
ALL working members of the media who are collecting any accredited passes (i.e if you are operating ANY audio and/or photography equipment) will be required to sign a release form in order to collect their pass at any event(s).
Field Day is an 18+ event. The only forms of valid photo ID that will be accepted are current Australian driver’s licence, current passport (supported by another form of ID), current state issued proof of age card. Please note that an international driver’s licence is not accepted as a valid form of identification.
8. I CAN’T GO TO FIELD DAY ANYMORE, CAN I JUST GIVE MY MEDIA ACCREDITATION TO SOMEONE ELSE AT WORK?
Media accreditation is not transferable. Wristband swapping is not permitted and anyone found to do so will be immediately escorted from site.
Should a change of name be required prior to the event please email [email protected] at least one week before the event explaining the reason for the change. As these events are so busy changes to media accreditation on the day of any given event cannot be guaranteed.
If you still have queries, please email [email protected] and you will receive a response within 48 hours.
Many thanks for your interest Field Day.
