Visiting the festival

Members of the Nederlandse Vereniging van Journalisten can get a free Press badge at the V.I.P. line at the registration desk during the festival. Please do bring your NVJ-Perskaart.

Members of comparable international organizations are advised to contact us in advance so we can check their credentials. If deemed comparable we will grant you a free Press badge in advance that you can also pick up during the festival at the registration desk.

We do not have a comparable arrangement for freelance photographers without press credentials. As our festival seems to be a magnet for photographers, do not expect to be alone when taking pictures. Therefore if you are a freelance photographer you will have to buy a ticket like other visitors and please do not forget to read our photography rules and our house rules, specifically the bag rules.

These rules also apply to members of the press.

Press contact number

The J-POP Foundation is a volunteer organization, so we prefer to be reached by e-mail or through our contact form.

As press sometimes has deadlines you can contact us using the following phone number, but please realize that the person answering the phone may be doing work he or she is actually paid for instead of convention business:

T +31 (0)10 891 0902 (Really: press only!)
