Festival Credentials

Advance media credential requests are now closed. Media credentials for Farm Aid 2019 can still be purchased on-site for $35 (cash or check only). Farm Aid is a nonprofit organization, and the music and food festival is its largest annual fundraising event. Therefore, each media representative is asked to pay a small fee for credentials to cover the cost of the media operation.

Credentials will not be sent in advance. Media credentials can be picked up the morning of the festival on Saturday, September 21. They will be distributed at the media check-in at the West Gate from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. CDT. Please be sure to have a photo ID and proof of media affiliation (business card, letter from editor if freelance, etc.) available for security purposes. All press will be required to pass through security upon entering Alpine Valley Music Theatre.

If you are a member of the media hoping to attend the event, and do not have media credentials, please contact Faith James at 202-248-5487 or by email at
