Smugglers Festival -2-7 September
The delightful Smugglers Festival have been kind enough to offer two Soulsound Members work experience opportunities across the above dates, working alongside myself and the rest of the audio crew. We have a tasty Funktion-One PA for the main stage
Smuggler’s is a small folk festival, in the most delightful location outside Deal in Kent. You would be shadowing/assisting the sound engineers and generally being helpful around the stages.
The accommodation is bring-you-own camping, and you would need to be on site for the full time – set-up day on the 2nd, and leaving on the 7th after all stages have been struck and trucks loaded.
Please be aware that this is a voluntary, unpaid opportunity.
The opportunity would suit you if you:
are a Monthly or Annual Soulsound Member
know one end of an XLR from the other
are looking for an opportunity to see what sound engineering looks like outside of the classroom
know to check that the channel is muted before unplugging a condenser mic
are serious about getting a career in sound
are over 18 years old
can either drive yourself there or get a train to Deal from where I can pick you up
are willing and able to do as you are asked
you aren’t afraid of hard graft and a long several days
have (and will wear) your own steel toes
What you will get:
the chance to shadow and assist on one or more of the following – monitors, FOH, patch, stage managing, system teching, looking after the second stage
a fabulous few days in the stunning countryside and beautiful woods in which we will be camping
the chance to network with (and impress) working engineers, learn from them and get your face known
some top class folk acts
the chance to see how a small three-day festival is put together
There will be a selection process, so please email Darryn at SoulSound with the following:
a couple of paragraphs about yourself, what your interest and experience is
your CV if you have one – no worries if you don’t, I’m more interested in your character than experience if we are to work together for six days
