2017 GRIDLIFE MIDWEST MEDIA EMAIL


Greetings media team,

First off, we’d like to thank you for being a part of the 2017 #GRIDLIFE Midwest Festival. It has been a long road since last years #GRIDLIFE and we have worked our butts off to make an event that is truly one of a kind. We want the world to see what we are doing here in the midwest and with your help we can build buzz into the next year and continue to grow and improve #GRIDLIFE for years to come.


GETTING INTO #GRIDLIFE

Media will be entering GRIDLIFE through the South Gate, which is the main gate into Gingerman Raceway. Your media ticket will get you through the gates and into the festival for all 3 days of #GRIDLIFE. You will need to present either a physical or digital version of your ticket at the gate. Everyone traveling with you will need a ticket as well. If you have lost the email or cannot find your ticket you just simply need to login to www.seetickets.us with your email to retrieve your tickets. You can also access your tickets via the seetickets app on both android and iOS.


MEDIA CREDENTIALS / VESTS

Media wristbands will be ready for you upon arrival at the gate. We will be providing vests this year that must be worn at all times in order to access areas around the track. You will pick up your vest at the media briefing. You will need to have your driver's license in order to get your vest. You will get your license back when you return your vest. We have a limited amount of vests so we request that only those who plan on shooting track side and in corner stands take a vest.


ACCESS AREAS

Media Passes / Vests will get you access to various areas of the facility not accessible by the general public. For on-track, you will be able to walk the entire perimeter of the track, and at certain times, gain access to the corner stands within the track. Anyone shooting near or on the track will need to have a GRIDLIFE MEDIA VEST For concert footage we will be allowing limited access to the photo pit for the first 10 minutes of each artists set. After that only GRIDLIFE official media will be allowed to have stage access. Media will be have access to the barn / classroom during hours of non use for charging
