Please Read Before You Apply

Applications END on June 3, 2022

All working members of the media are invited to cover the 3rd Annual Boston Art & Music Soul Festival, with preference given to those working on assignment with coverage secured. Please read the information below before applying.


There are no backstage passes or unlimited access provided to media.  There is no media list for specific events, nor are performers provided with media passes.  We have an open camera policy, but no detachable lenses, tripods or other commercial equipment is allowed without express written consent.

Media credentials are issued only to accredited media members covering the festival and/or related festival activities for legitimate publications, internet sites, cable networks and radio/television stations.  

To be considered, a media outlet must have 2,500K+ combined reach (Print/Social/Digital).

Requests for accreditation will only be considered by submitting this form online.  Please do not contact us with questions regarding the status of your application.  Media credentials for BAMS Festival 2022 are extremely limited.  All decisions will be final and applicants will be contacted via email with confirmation or denial of their request.

Please remember this application is only a request and it may not be approved. BAMS Fest reserves the right to approve or deny accreditation. The decision is final and cannot be appealed.


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



BAMS Festival organizers are available for interviews. Contact 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 general admission access to the festival (not backstage) and a press badge. 

A Photo Pass provides permission to use professional photography equipment and access to the stage photo pits.

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.

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 “Outlet Information.”
