Event Details


This is an application for a media credential for Los Angeles Times The Taste. Submitting the form DOES NOT guarantee a media credential. All applications will be reviewed and, whether or not approved, a response will be provided in a separate email closer to festival weekend. The deadline to apply for a media credential is Wednesday, August 29 at 5:00pm.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to a more limited number of media credentials for the 2018 event, only applications that have been fully completed will be considered. Any applications with incomplete fields or missing information will automatically be denied. To avoid your application not being considered, please provide as much information as possible. Every single fully completed application will be reviewed, and you will receive a separate email response. Note that this response may come closer to the event weekend than in previous years, due to the limited number of passes for this year's festival.
