The Iceberg Alley Performance Tent is an eleven day Festival created to showcase the unique culture, traditions and heritage of Newfoundland and Labrador alongside nationally and internationally acclaimed entertainment. Music performances of all genres are being held under a 25,000 square foot “big top” tent in the culturally historic area within the City of St. John’s known as Pleasantville, on the banks of Quidi Vidi Lake.
The event has been designed with the patron experience foremost in mind and to maximize the economic impact through visitations and the promotion of our Province as an authentic experience destination.
The Iceberg Alley Performance Tent is wheelchair accessible. There will be an elevated viewing area platform created in the main tent designated for patrons using wheelchairs with direct view of the stage. The patron, and one attendant, are welcome to enter at no additional cost (one ticket purchased between the two patrons). Please note that organizers while we will make best efforts to accommodate all requests, if the designated section is at capacity there may be a wait.
Support persons for patrons with disabilities can access the festival site without additional cost above the admission price for the patron with a disability (one support person per person with a disability). Please identify your support person when you arrive at the festival gate and we will assist you.
If you have any other questions, please let us know – we’re happy to help!
The Iceberg Alley Performance Tent will only grant media access to those reporting for, or on behalf of accredited media outlets. We have a limited number of passes and cannot guarantee that all requests will receive media accreditation.
In order to approve any accreditation requests, you must send an email to email@example.com with the following subject line Media Access Request to Iceberg Alley Performance Tent. In the email, please indicate the following
1) The media organization you are working for and the format (broadcast, print or online);
2) How you plan to present your coverage (review, feature, blog, etc.);
3) The dates you are requesting access for (not the acts/the dates please);
4) The number of passes you require (if you require more than one, why do you need more than one);
Please be brief in your explanations. We will be in touch if you have been granted accreditation or if we have any further questions. Media access is for general admission areas only – accreditation for the photo pit is granted on a case by case basis. Access to front-of-stage photo area will NOT be granted until approved by artist management.
Only accredited media photographers can bring professional equipment into the Iceberg Alley Festival Tent. We define professional as being any camera with a detachable lens. If your lens can be removed from your camera, we consider it professional.
Sorry, no camcorders, SLRs/DSLRS, tripods, video cameras, drones or GoPros. Small handheld cameras WITHOUT a detachable lens (under 15cm in length), smartphones, cell phones and iPads are all cool with us.
We want you to enjoy the festival and be able to take as many pics with any non-professional cameras of your choice. If you’re in doubt – don’t bring it. We are also big fans of sharing your tent experience on social media. Pease feel free to post to our Facebook or Instagram pages and/or tweet at us using @IcebergAlleyNL.
Please don’t risk being turned away at the gates or being asked to leave and remember that we can’t store cameras while you’re inside enjoying the tent.
