If permission is granted, the reporter must confirm all arrangements with the publicist including notification of approval to the artist’s tour/road manager who will provide the reporter access to the interview at the festival. You must provide SunFest media office with a copy of approved interviews Approved interviews will require artists’ management to supply passes/credentials to the approved reporter. Those approved passes will be distributed at ‘ARTIST WILL-CALL’ located at the Clematis entrance of the Festival. SunFest International Festival assumes no responsibility for artist’s guest lists and its omissions.
SunFest DOES NOT provide backstage access for artist interviews.
