Media accreditation for 2015 now open

Published on 9 May 2015

Media who would like to be part of the 2015 National Arts Festival, which runs from 2 to 12 July, are invited to apply for accreditation.

Interested journalists can apply for accreditation via the Media Centre on our website. Please make sure you complete all the fields. The Festival Media Office will confirm receipt of all applications.

Note that your application does not necessarily mean you’re automatically accredited.

MEDIA FACILITIES: Accredited media will receive press passes, and will have access to the media office (including work stations, internet access, telephone facilities). They will also be granted access to production photographs and information where available. Assistance will also be given to media wanting to interview the artists.

TICKETS: All media (including photographers and TV crews) are required to request tickets in advance for all the shows they would like to attend.

Media accreditation benefits include the opportunity to apply for a limited number of complimentary tickets to review performances on the Main, Arena and Fringe programmes – a press pass alone does not guarantee access to shows.

Accredited media are encouraged to submit their ticket requests on the template provided by the Media Office to as soon as possible. Instructions will be given along with confirmation of your accreditation. Allocations will be made on a first-come, first-served basis, so journalists are encouraged to get their requests in as soon as possible.

We recommend that you make your accommodation and travel arrangements as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. These costs are for your personal/company expense.

If you can’t attend, but would like to receive information about the Festival, contact the Media Office via and we’ll sign you up.

We look forward to working with you for another 11 days of amazing.

Keep in touch
