Volunteering opportunities at Bingley Music Live

The organisers of Bingley Music Live are looking for people who have an interest in music, festivals and events management to volunteer at the festival.

Volunteers will get free entry for the whole weekend festival, a free festival programme as well as free food and drinks whilst on shift.

AroundTheSite1-BingleyMusicLive2009-GS-5There are a number of volunteering roles available at the Council-run festival which takes place in Bingley’s Myrtle Park over the weekend of September 4, 5 and 6.

Volunteer opportunities are available for people to work with the Gate Team, be Event Angels, Programme Sellers, be part of the Green Team or be a PR runner helping the festival to run smoothly.

Gate Team volunteers will provide a friendly face welcoming festival-goers to the site, supporting security and ticketing staff and giving out information.

Event Angels will be the eyes and ears of the festival, providing revellers with information, directions and helping people get the most out of the event.

Programme Sellers will sell the official festival programmes from the merchandise stand or around the arena. This role would suit anyone who loves talking to people and provides great opportunity for anyone looking to gain experience in promotions.

The Green Team is a small group of volunteers who work to assist with recycling and litter picking help keep the site clean.

The PR runner will assist the busy festival press office, working alongside a CIPR Gold Award winning agency to book in journalists and photographers as well as escort them to their interviews with the acts.

Diana Greenwood, from Bradford Council who is co-ordinating the volunteering team, said: “Our festival volunteers play a big part in creating a great atmosphere and help festival goers have a fantastic time!

“Volunteering at Bingley Music Live is a fun and rewarding experience, a great way to meet new people and to see what it takes to make a music festival happen.

“Every year our volunteers have an amazing time, and many come back to volunteer with us the following year. Also, volunteering looks great on your CV for potential employers.

“So if you want to gain experience and have an interest in music, festivals and events management or just want the opportunity to work with a team of fun, like-minded people then we want to hear from you!”

All volunteers must be 16 years old or over on 3rd September 2015 and will need to be available for the full three days of the festival. Hours worked are dependant on the role but there are no early starts or late shifts and all are given regular breaks so they can also enjoy the festival.
