Media Centre – location and services

The Media Centre (Mediakeidas in Finnish) is located behind Ilosaari Lounge. The Media Centre will be open on Friday from 6pm to 10pm, on Saturday from 12 noon to 10pm and on Sunday from 12 noon to 11pm. It is also possible to arrange special opening hours, but preferably well in advance. Your visits to the Media Centre can be work-related, but you can also go there just to rest from the seething crowds.

At the Media Centre you will find three laptop spots with internet connections and two laptops with internet connection. The computers are meant mainly for writing articles and transferring photos. In case you need any extra devices, please contact the staff: if.kcoriraasoli@aidem / tel. +358 50 336 0195.

Interview requests for artists

Interview requests for both Finnish and foreign artists must be made directly to the artist's record company. You will find the contact information below. If necessary, the staff at Media Centre will forward requests to artists.

The media representatives do not have a direct access to the backstage artist areas. The VIP tent and the Media Centre, for example, are good places to arrange interviews in. The Media Centre staff will help in all possible ways with arranging times and places for interviews.

Guidelines for photographers

A right to take photos is included in the Ilosaarirock Festival media pass. The basic rule on all stages is that with a media pass you can take photos with a flash ONLY from in front of the stage, i.e. between the stage and the security fence, during the first THREE songs.

The stage security personnel may have different guidelines from the ones stated above, because of the artists' wishes or security reasons. In order to get guidelines concerning each artist you have to arrive at the stage five minutes before a gig starts, at the latest. Photographers cannot go on the stage or on the stage constructions. Remember also that the security personnel are responsible for safety on stage and they need space to do their work effectively.

Guidelines for shooting video

Ilosaarirock Festival does not grant permissions for shooting video; that is why all video shooting permissions have to be asked directly from each artist's representative. You can shoot video in the festival area if those you are shooting agree on this. When shooting video, the unfortunate basic rule is that everything not permitted is forbidden.

Again, the stage security personnel may have different guidelines from the ones stated above, because of artists' wishes or security reasons. In order to get guidelines concerning each band you have to arrive at the stage five minutes before the gig starts at the latest. Camera personnel cannot go on the stage or the stage constructions. Remember also that the security personnel are responsible for safety on stage and they need space to do their work.
