MAGWest is a very open event, with little to no limited access areas. As such, there are no press exclusive areas or privileges. If you wish to photograph or video/audio record the festival, you are more than welcome to do so per the media policy in our code of conduct.

Bags may be subject to search when entering safety-sensitive areas such as our concert hall.
