1.1 REQUIREMENTS TO BE FULFILLED

  • Accreditations may only be requested through the press section of www.azkenarockfestival.com. At no time will any telephone or email enquiries regarding accreditation applications be dealt with.

  • In the case of television, there shall be a maximum of three accreditations per medium. One of them must be an editor.
  • The number of photographers allowed by the bands and the organisation of the Azkena Rock Festival is limited, so the organisation will have to make a selection. The organisation will provide quality photographs to the media that are denied photographer accreditation.
    denied accreditation as a photographer.
1.3. DECISIONS

On Friday 7 June, accredited media whose applications have been approved will be notified by email.
This accreditation does not guarantee that these photographers and broadcasters will be able to photograph and/or film all the performances at the festival, as each band has its own rules and accreditations in this respect, and it is the management of each band who has the final say on which media can photograph and/or film.

The organisers will contact each of the accredited photographers and/or broadcasters by email a few days in advance to confirm which concerts can and cannot be photographed and filmed.

 

2. HOW TO APPLY FOR ACCREDITATION

2.1. On the dates indicated (21th April until 9.00 a.m. on 31st May 2024), we will activate an accreditation application form in this section.

2.2. The accreditation application form will appear. You have to fill in all fields of the form. One form must be filled in per person. When you have completed it, click on SEND. It is very important that the e-mail address you include in the form is checked frequently. Many of the informational communications to accreditation holders will be made by e-mail. You will then be shown a screen indicating whether the application has been successful.

2.3. Decisions on applications received will be made public as described in point 1.3 below.

2.4. If your application is rejected, there will be no possibility to appeal.

AZKENA ROCK FESTIVAL

The Azkena Rock Festival, known as ARF by its loyal fans, is the quintessential rock n’ roll festival, a must for those who love rock in all its senses. ‘Burning since 2002,’ ARF has been making rock n’ roll history for two decades by featuring some of the genre’s biggest international stars.

The festival has featured classics from the likes of Bob Dylan, Patti Smith, The Who, Kiss, Iggy & The Stooges, Ozzy Osbourne, Sex Pistols, Gregg Allman, Brian Setzer, Alice Cooper, Deep Purple, New York Dolls, The Pogues and MC5, to some of the most relevant contemporary artists and bands like Chris Isaak, Slash, Pearl Jam, The Black Crowes, Wilco, My Morning Jacket, Queens of the Stone Age, Juliette Lewis and Wolfmother. If we combined the names of all the bands that have graced the Mendizabala and La Virgen Blanca stages, we would have a crystal-clear picture of the grandeur of the festival and the history of rock over the last 50 years.

The Azkena Rock Festival celebrates its 22nd anniversary, and this time Queens of The Stone Age, Sheryl Crow, Arde Bogotá and many more bands will gather again in Mendizabala, a place where the bands and the audience alike feel at home.
