Work for the Summer Festival Guide

Are you a budding photographer, or studying in the media / music industry?  Would you like free passes to some of the biggest music festivals in the world?  Have you ever wished you could interview some of your favourite artists?  Do you want the chance to work and be a part of one of the leading festival guide sites in the world?

If you have answered yes to the above questions, then we want you!

We are looking for a number of photographers, journalists and media writers to help us cover music festivals all over Europe.  We are currently a small outfit of very enuthiastic music lovers who are passionate about music and live music events, and in order for us to expand our empire we need your help.

What can we possibly offer you, you may ask!  Well have a look below:

  • Free tickets to music festivals all over the UK and Europe.
  • The chance to interview artists playing the festivals.
  • Photography / Press passes so you have access to press pits to get the best photos!

What do we require in return you may ask?  All we ask is that you take high quality photos of the artists and festival goers at the event and that you write a review of your day at the festival.  The Summer Festival Guide will pubish your review and photos on the website and you will be accredited accordingly.

Update April 2015: At the moment we are only looking for journalists to join the site.  Photographers check back in a few months.
