I’M A REVIEWER, DO I GET A PASS?

All reviewers will be issued with a wristband which grants general admission access to the festival site. Any access above and beyond general admission is at the discretion of GTM.

I’M A PHOTOGRAPHER, WHAT ACCESS DO I HAVE?

There is a strictly limited number of pit access photo passes for each event. ALL photographers accredited with a media pass must complete and sign a release form when collecting their pass at the event(s).

Accredited photographers have access to the general admission areas of the site and the photo pit in front of each stage for the first three (3) songs of each artist unless otherwise advised by GTM event staff. Please note the use of flash photography is not permitted at any time.

Closed shoes are to be worn at all times and directions and or requests of the publicity team, security and/ or any event staff at any given event must be followed. Not wearing closed in shoes will result in denied access to all Photo Pits.

Photographers who are not granted a media pass with pit access will be issued with Photo Permission Letter which must be carried with them at all times. This letter will be provided at Guest Services on the day of the event and permits them to bring a professional camera into the event with permission to shoot still photography from the crowd only.

There’s no media area on site at GTM, however there are various charging stations around the festival site. We do recommend that photographers wishing to file photos throughout the day bring their own USB wireless equipment.

GTM is not responsible for any media equipment.

There is strictly no backstage or side of stage access for any photographers or reviewers under any circumstances.

WHERE DO I COLLECT MY PASS FROM?

All passes and reviewer tickets are to be collected by showing Photo ID from the GUEST SERVICES box office (unless the GTM Publicity Team has advised you of other arrangements) which is located just outside the main public entrance of the event.

ALL working members of the media who are collecting any accredited passes (i.e if you are operating ANY audio and/or photography equipment) will be required to sign a release form in order to collect their pass at any event(s).

Note: Valid photo ID is also required to receive an ’18+’ wristband to access the licensed areas of the event. The only forms of valid photo ID that will be accepted are current Australian driver’s licence, current passport (supported by another form of ID), current state issued proof of age card. Please note: for GTM Bunbury, only a WA proof of age card will be accepted – other state issued proof of age cards will not be accepted). Please note that an international driver’s license is not accepted as a valid form of identification at any GTM Event.

I CAN’T GO TO GTM ANYMORE, CAN I JUST GIVE MY MEDIA ACCREDITATION TO SOMEONE ELSE AT WORK?

Media accreditation is not transferable. All passes must contain the correct name of the media representative. Pass swapping is not permitted and anyone found to do so will be immediately escorted from site.

Should a change of name be required prior to the event please email hello@morsecodepr.com.au at least two weeks before the relevant event explaining the reason for the change. As these events are so busy changes to media accreditation on the day of any given event cannot be guaranteed.

If you still have queries, please email hello@morsecodepr.com.au and you will receive a response within 48 hours.

Many thanks for your interest in GTM.
