Media Accreditation Conditions

Media accreditation is reserved for members of the press (print, radio, TV, film, news agencies and online media) who represent a significant media organisation. Freelancers will not be accredited unless they are assigned by a recognised media organisation and meet all other media requirements.

On arrival to the festival, you must check in at the Accreditation window of the ticket booth at the main gate. On presentation of photo identification you will be allocated your media accreditation. Accreditation must be worn and displayed at all times.

All media passes are strictly personal and non-transferable. If changes to the person accredited need to be made, please contact the Media Liaison to organise. Abuse of these passes will result in the cancellation and removal of the accreditation for everyone from the publication.

Media & photographers are not permitted in backstage areas unless escorted by a member of the Media team. Under no circumstances should media personnel walk through the backstage area. Should this occur or should media/photographers not follow directions of festival staff/security, we reserve the right to immediately cancel accreditation and revoke all festival access.

Photographers are permitted access to the area between the main stage and the crowd barrier- but must be escorted by a member of the Media liaison team. As the barrier is provided primarily to assist security in crowd control and patron safety, photographers must be aware of the crowd activity and security at all times. Security and staff instructions must be adhered to at all times. Access to the area in front of the barrier is permitted for the first three songs of consenting artists performances. Use of flash is not permitted.

The Media liaison team will advise Media & photographers of any other requirements or restrictions in regards to artist performances.

Media & Photographers must comply with the conditions of entry to the festival as well as adhere to the CMF Health and Safety Policy.

The sale of images taken at CMF is strictly prohibited, unless permitted in writing by the Festival Director.

A copy of all photographic/broadcasted material must be forwarded to the Festival Office by Monday 8 October 2018. All material to be submitted in a published format, and all digital media coverage to be supplied.

A breach of the guidelines, or the refusal to follow the direction of CMF officials and security, will result in the forfeit of your media accreditation and removal from the festival site.

Contact our Media Liaison at for any queries.
