If you are a member of the press or industry, you can request an accreditation for Desertfest 2018 right here.
Fill in this form BEFORE 14/9, and in your motivation make sure to let us know the following:


• some info on your medium: where are you based? what is your focus? What is you reach on- and offline?
• a clear proposal on your coverage of the festival. This includes the content that will be published BEFORE, DURING and AFTER the festival.
• If you have any specific focus or POV you want to bring to your coverage, we're curious to hear it.!

We are particulary interested in creative coverage before the festival, as well as content that goes beyond the traditional review. Original ideas definitely stand more of a chance!

• Please also tell us the nature of your content (written, video, photo's...), and where you intend to publish it (print, online, blog and/or socialmedia...).
• Do you plan on doing interviews with artists or the DF crew before or during the festival? Let us know who you plan to talk to.

The sooner you apply, the better. We will review every request on a first-come-first-served basis, and we will have 2 deliberation rounds: end of August and right after the deadline. Please understand that each
year we get A LOT of requests, and we can only accommodate a limited amount of media. Our selection is based on a number of criteria that have been taken into careful consideration :)
In other words: give it your best shot, and don't feel bad if you don't get selected this year. Our selection will not reflect a negative judgement on the accomplishments of your medium or yourself. Good luck!


Same rules apply as for press, but in the message please state clearly the purpose of your visit and your connection to the festival or the scene.
