Our events are known to be very photogenic, whether it’s the terrain, our line-up or our beautifully dressed visitors. Of course we’d like to see photo-enthusiasts enjoying this all. In order to let things run smoothly, we have created a photography policy, so everyone will enjoy making photos and having their photo taken.

It is allowed to bring amateur photo and video equipment for personal use and image- and audio recordings that have been made at our events are solely for non-commercial purposes.

Outside this policy are: mobile phones and tablets with photo/video possibilities, regular (digital) photo cameras without detachable lenses.
In case of doubt the organization decides at its own discretion.

Press & Media

Professional photographers can apply for press accreditation via our Vana Events press department: 

Castlefest receives many press requests every year and therefore we make a strict selection. Applying for accreditation doesn’t automatically mean you will receive accreditation for Castlefest. 

(Hobby) photographers
Hobby photographers can apply for a special Castlefest photo pass, which allows them to make photos with a camera with detachable lenses during Castlefest. A prerequisite for this is to accept our Vana Events photography rules of conduct.

After applying you will receive your photo pass, which can be picked up at the entrance of the festival.

Because 2017 will be the first year of this photography policy, it will still be possible to apply for a photo pass at the festival entrance. From 2018 onwards applying needs to be done prior to the event.

From 3 August 5PM onwards it will not be possible anymore to apply online for a photo pass. In 2017 it will be possible to get your photo pass fixed at the info desk. 

When submitting this form I agree to and understand the Vana Events photography policy including the corresponding Vana Events Photography rules of conduct
