Bands of America Photography and Video Recording Policy

Videotaping is not permitted without the expressed, written consent of Music for All.

Still cameras (digital or film, professional, or otherwise) are allowed into the stadium and may be used from stadium seating, but not on the field. Only Jolesch Enterprise photographers (the official photography company of Music for All) and news media with Bands of America-issued media credentials are allowed to photograph from the field.

Tripods, or other similar equipment that may obstruct the view or path of travel of others, are not allowed. The issuance of a “Field Pass” or other non-media Bands of America credential does not include the right to use a camera on the field. Pass holders must go into stadium spectator seating to use their cameras.

Group Photos

Jolesch Enterprises will be on-site to take a group picture of each band after they exit the performance area. They will also be taking action photos on the field level.

Ordering information will be available onsite.


Music for All is committed to providing safe and secure events. It's easy to take for granted the routine moments in our everyday lives—going to work or school, the grocery store or the gas station. However, your everyday is different than your neighbor’s—filled with the moments that make it uniquely yours. So if you see something you know shouldn't be there—or someone's behavior that doesn't seem quite right—say something.  Informed, alert communities play a critical role in keeping our nation safe. 

To report suspicious activity, immediately contact Music for All event staff at the event. Music for All will contact local law enforcement agency. Describe specifically what you observed, including:

  • Who or what you saw;
  • When you saw it;
  • Where it occurred;
  • and Why it's suspicious.
