Many people have asked if we have an official policy regarding the taping of
Indigo Girls concerts. We do now and here it is —
INDIGO GIRLS OFFICIAL TAPING POLICY
Audience taping is permitted at all Indigo Girls shows. We believe that
taping shows is helpful in the encouragement of fan interaction and a way of
having a permanent memory of a live show. If Indigo Girls are playing in an
event which features multiple bands, the taping policy of the headlining
band and/or the festival event will dictate the taping policy for that
evening. All taping of live Indigo Girls shows is restricted to audio only;
NO VIDEO taping will be allowed. Audio recording is limited to portable
equipment which includes microphones and a recorder. Power or other
auxiliary equipment are generally not supplied, so be prepared to bring your
own battery powered equipment. Soundboard feeds will not be allowed. If you
wish to tape, we encourage you to arrive early to set up.
All taping must be for personal and non-commercial use only. No profit is
ever to be made from live shows. You are permitted to trade shows with other
fans for an equal amount of media (ie. 2 CDs for 2 CDs). Indigo Girls, Inc.
reserves the right to seek legal remedies against anyone that is in
violation of this policy.
Trading of shows has been a large part of recreating the live experience and
we want to continue offering this option to fans. Please keep clear of the
crew during the show. Remember that the audience’s enjoyment of a live show
is paramount and will NEVER be sacrificed to accommodate tapers. Please
refrain at all times from requesting fans to move or keep quiet. Please
respect other fans while you are taping.
