Riptide Musical Festival reserves the right to approve or deny accreditation, and revoke an issued media pass at any time. A very limited amount of media credentials are available per day. The decisions are final and cannot be appealed. Media credentials for Riptide Music Festival are reserved for working print, online and broadcast journalists with commercial news organizations that produce and publish original content.

Photographers and videographers must be on assignment from a working print, online or broadcast commercial news organization.
