All working members of the media are invited to cover Maha Festival, with preference given to those working on assignment with coverage secured. 

The application to cover Maha Festival 2022 will open in the spring. Please contact media@mahafestival.com with questions.


Please contact us for Maha Festival logos, graphics, and photos.


Maha organizers are available for interviews. Contact media@mahafestival.com to schedule. Artist interview requests should be sent directly to artist management, typically found on their websites or social media profiles.


A Press Pass provides access to the Maha Media Center (not backstage). The Media Center includes tables, chairs, wi-fi access, volunteers to answer questions and safeguard computers/equipment, and a quiet space for interviews. 

A Photo Pass provides the same benefits as a Press Pass and also includes permission to use professional photography equipment and access to the main stage photo pit.

Important: Only one pass is granted per person, so if you are press, but plan to use professional photography equipment to shoot photos for your publication, please request a Photo Pass.

Both the Press and Photo Pass include regular/general admission access to the event you’re covering.

Due to space limitations, only one (1) pass will be assigned per publication. You have the option to indicate in the application whether you need additional passes, though this request can only be approved on a limited basis.  


If you are a freelancer, please have an assigning editor submit the form request. Unfortunately, we cannot accept any applications from freelancers that are not officially on assignment for a publication.


If you represent a college publication or radio station, please have an assigning editor submit the form request. Please include the size of your school’s student body under “Publication Info.”
