Walnut Valley Takes Stance on Drones at the Festival

The Walnut Valley Association has put in place a new rule prohibiting the operation and use of remote control Drones on the grounds of the Walnut Valley Festival effective immediately.

This is due to numerous reasons including the following:

  1. To protect the privacy and safety of those attending the festival.

  2. Contractual agreements prohibiting the video recording of paid performers during the festival.

  3. Possible noise interference of the music being played for the enjoyment of festival attendees.

  4. Liabilities should a drone make contact with one of the structures, poles, power lines or any other objects on festival grounds that might cause injury to attendees.
