The Dave Matthews Band Taping Policy and's Policy

From DMB Taping Policy
Dave Matthews Band allows audiotaping at almost every live performance. We feel that each show is unique and want to offer our fans the opportunity to recreate the live experience through the audio reproduction of our shows. At all taping authorized performances, tapers can tape from any ticketed seating location in the venue. Also, for many of these performances tapers are able to purchase tickets for a specially designated taper section, normally located immediately behind the soundboard. No soundboard or power feeds are provided.

Taping is limited to audio-only, using only microphones. Wireless receivers are strictly prohibited. We sincerely appreciate all of our fans, so we ask that you please be considerate of those around you by not obstructing anyone else's view of the performance.

When taper tickets are available for a particular show, they are released concurrently with general seating tickets. To obtain designated taper tickets, contact the venue's box office.

All recordings must be used for personal use or trading only. Selling or commercializing any recording is illegal and will jeopardize taping privileges for everyone. Please read our Bootleg Statement for more information.

In addition to helping fans recreate the live experience, we hope tape trading will foster greater interaction within the fan community. Any method of trading that does not involve personal fan interaction defeats the spirit of this goal of the taping policy and is not authorized.

---- Policy will try to enforce this taping policy as much as it can on its boards. This entails the removing of threads that are breaking the taping policy, such as trading of IEM (In Ear Monitors) recordings, DSBD recordings Post 1995 (1996-Current)(Digital Sound Boards), ALD (Assisted Listening Devices) recordings, Matrix recordings, and other tapings not following the DMB Taping Policy Guidelines. The biggest thing is to use your common sense. If you are not sure if a show is tradable by DMB Taping Rules feel free to send me an email at and I will be more then happy to help you out.

No one wants to jeopardize the taping privilege we have now, and trading such things does put the privilege into jeopardy. Lets keep the Trading community clean and most of all Enjoy The Show!

The Staff.
