From Bonnaroo to Sundance, Coachella to Burning Man, Film, art, and music festivals need professionals to schedule, market, and run the events.
For a festival attendee, buying a ticket, dressing up in Coachella or Sundance-appropriate attire, and enjoying the experience are simple enough. Behind the scenes, however, there’s a lot that goes into film, art, and music festivals.
Arranging large-scale screenings, exhibits, and performances requires significant preparation, so festivals demand professionals who can organize, budget, and direct the planning process. Along with event planners, marketers are responsible for coordinating sponsorships and attracting thousands of festival-goers. Lastly, ticket operators are needed to handle on-site sales and admissions.
