Press passes provide access to the Maha media center (not backstage). The media center includes tables, chairs, wi-fi access (provided by Aksarben Village, not Maha, so no guarantees), volunteers to answer questions and safeguard computers/equipment, and a quiet space for interviews.

Photo passes provide the same benefits as a press pass and also include permission to use professional photography equipment and access to the main stage photo pit.
