Online Accreditation

​​​​​​​​Coming to the festival this January​?​

​The Celtic Connections Press Office accredits around 450 journalists, reviewers, broadcasters and photographers every year. If you intend to cover the festival this year for any media organisation, you will need Celtic Connections accreditation.

Why apply for a Celtic Connections Media Pass?

Accreditation through the Celtic Connections Press Office allows you to apply for review tickets or photo access and also entitles you to access the Press Office throughout the festival. The Press Office will be open every day of the festival and is based in the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall.

How do I apply for accreditation?

You can apply for accreditation by filling in the form here. Once we have processed your application we will get in touch via the email address you provide to let you know if you have been accredited – please note that we may request that you provide us with a commissioning letter from your editor or producer, or copies of articles you have written on previous Celtic Connections festivals.
