As a private person you are allowed to bring a camera and lens with zoom up to 55mm. No permit is required for taking photos as long as they are  for private use only. You can not bring extra equipment such as tripods, battery grips etc. Professional film recordings of concerts are not allowed, but it is okay to use your cellphone with a built in camera/video function.

Please observe that it is not allowed to use flash by the stages.

For professional photography and to bring equipment for professional use and publication, you need special approved media accreditation. For photography in the pit you need a valid photo vest provided by the festival. 


General ADVICE:

* It's always a good idea to do an inventory of the bag you want to bring into the festival area before coming. The less things you bring with you, the faster the lines will move and the smaller the risk to have items confiscated. 

* If you need to bring prescription drugs into the festival area for medical reasons, bring your prescription or medical certificate.

* Children who have not yet turned three are not allowed into the festival area. If you are planning to bring a child of age 3-13, make sure that they wear earmuffs and please read our page about children at Sweden Rock
