VIP & PRESS

VIP & PRESS

Central to the mission of the Pine Jam Festival is promotion and support of performing songwriters. During our flagship event, Pine Jam Festival, access is granted to certain music presenters who book PJF performers at music festivals, venues and house concerts, as well as members of the press who write about and promote the Pine Jam Festival activities and artists. Specific criteria must be met to be granted complimentary Festival access. We invite music presenters and members of the press to request complimentary entrance to the Festival; please specify if backstage credentials are requested.

Request for VIP Access – House Concert Series

Complimentary VIP access to the Pine Jam Folk Festival may be granted to qualifying House Concert Series hosts to further support KFF artists and create booking opportunities. Complimentary access is limited to ONE person per House Concert Series (the person who makes the performer booking decisions) and if a second host is directly involved with booking performers, a second VIP Access Pass may be purchased for half-price. Only those House Concert Series hosts who present a MINIMUM of SIX House Concerts per year may qualify for a VIP Access Pass.

Please do not take advantage of our generosity by abusing VIP access policies. We would love to grant free access to everyone, but we simply cannot afford to do this. We won’t survive without ticket sales. Most of our venue partners and friends choose to support the festival financially by purchasing tickets, and simply want backstage access to the performers. If you have purchased tickets, or are planning to purchase tickets and want VIP/Backstage credentials, please request access using the application below.

To see the best in emerging songwriters, be sure to attend the New Folk Concerts at Threadgill Memorial Theater during the first & second weekend. Go Here for details on New Folk.

Please keep in mind that filling out this form will not guarantee a VIP Access Pass. If, for whatever reason, we cannot grant you access to the Festival, we will contact you at the email address you specify below. Please be aware that you MUST provide photo ID upon check-in.
