Skiddle to pay music fan to attend festivals

Something for the weekend: Are you a die-hard music fan who needs their festival fix after years of music festivals being cancelled and delayed? Well, you just might be in luck with this job advert, as you can party the summer away and get paid for it too!

Ticket platform Skiddle is looking for one lucky live music aficionado to be a festival reporter in the UK this summer, attending up to 13 events such as Parklife in Manchester’s Heaton Park, science-and-music weekender Bluedot in Cheshire, and not one but two editions of EDM bash Creamfields.

If you’ve ever wanted to earn a wage watching artists such as Björk, 50 Cent and Megan Thee Stallion perform, then now’s your chance. The salary is £7,500, with entrance, travel expenses and meals also covered by Skiddle. Never mind a concrete jungle were dreams are made of, someone’s festival fantasy will become a reality in several fields this year.

So, what are the specifics of the job?

According to the platform’s advert, the part-time position has been tailored to suit those with a creative streak, who have a keen eye for producing fun, exciting and engaging content and with an undying passion for live music.

“We are looking for someone with a friendly, outgoing and confident character to embark on an once-in-a-lifetime experience, to capture memory-making moments, seeking out the very best of each event, with content gathered set to be used and published across Skiddle’s social platforms,” the description states.

Potential applicants must be willing to travel the length and breadth of the UK to work evenings and weekends, with a passion for producing high-quality content and confidence behind and in front of a camera.
