Social Media Manager:  In this day and age, it’s pretty much required for any legitimate festival to have an active and engaging presence on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube, and somebody’s got to make it happen!

Travel and Lodging Coordinator:  Festivals bring together the best of the best of the music, food, film, yoga or arts scene. Coordinating the flights, lodging and transportation costs of so many people - and in some cases, important headliners - isn’t an easy task. To get there, consider pursuing a career in group or corporate hospitality or travel.

Intern Positions

Vendor Liaison:   Many festivals have designated areas for vendors, placed in strategic locations that get a lot of foot traffic during the day. 

Sponsorship / Sales Manager:   Sponsors make a festival come to life, and in many cases sponsorship revenue is a huge component of a festival’s overall income. Of course, sponsors won’t just get on board with any festival. Festival producers need to convince like-minded brands and organizations that their event will be an opportunity to connect with potential customers and increase awareness and engagement. This isn’t an easy task, which is why many festivals and large event companies hire a sponsorship or sales team to obtain partnership agreements with key partners.

Festivals need a strong visual presence to catch your eye and to keep you entertained: from advertisements to posters, banners to stage and set decor, wrist bands to program guides. This involves a team of various designers, including visual designers, set designers and graphic designers

Assistant Event Producer (3):   An event producer coordinates and oversees all aspects of the festival: from the event space to the run of show, the talent to the vendors, the quality of the attendee experience, and logistical details like budget, production timelines and much, much more. It's not an easy job and certainly not an entry-level one, but if you're clear-headed, meticulously detail-oriented and hard working, it might be a good fit for you.

Talent Booker:   A talent manager or booker is in charge of securing key entertainers for the festival's lineup. This involves reaching out to managers, negotiating a budget and contract for pay, and ensuring that the talent is taken care of while onsite.

Intern Positions

Volunteer Coordinator:   Many festivals "hire" a team of volunteers to help with behind-the-scenes work and various tasks necessary to make the event run smoothly, offering free admission in exchange for their assistance. Depending on the size of the festival, volunteer teams can exceed 100 to 200 people, or sometimes more. In many cases, festivals employ a volunteer coordinator to both recruit and manage volunteers.

Operations Team(4):   Of course, festivals can't rely solely on volunteers to get the heavy lifting done. Many festivals employ an operations team to assist with necessary but sometimes difficult tasks that need to get done on-site, like building sets, delivering equipment and supplies, keeping the staff fed, cleaning up, and anything else that may arise during the event.
