Duties: coordinating logistics/travel/hospitality with approximately 35 bands; coordinating many of the event’s production details; securing the required paperwork for bands’ payments; and generally assisting with all aspects of producing a successful music festival.

Qualifications: Candidates must be self-starters; able to work independently; possess strong writing skills; able (and excited!) to organize and track a large and constantly shifting quantity of details; comfortable working with spreadsheets in Excel; and confident on the phone and over e-mail.
