Photography Guidelines

All photography (and approved videography) should take place from the side aisle of the daytime venues so that views of the stages are not impeded. Our goal is to enhance everyone’s respect to both performers and enjoyment of the festival by extending courtesy & respect of audience members when taking pictures. The photo pit at the Pastures of Plenty will continue to be limited to credentialed media, & media have been asked to get their shots as quickly as possible.

Please minimize the amount of time standing directly in front of the stage.

We do not allow the recording or reproduction of performances at the festival.

The use of cameras and phones must not interfere with other fans’ enjoyment.

Thank you for your cooperation!
