Summer Festival Jobs

Top Student Jobs – Festival Jobs
The festival calendar in the UK just keeps growing and growing – as do the number of people attending them. You’ve probably been to a few of the summer festivals yourself….

And you’ve probably paid quite a tidy sum for tickets to get in to the festival…

So why not think about getting a job at a summer festival this year? You might not only get in for free, you could possibly get paid as well!

With masses of events and music festivals all over the nation now - including Glastonbury, Isle of Wight, T In The Park, Sonisphere, Creamfields, the Edinburgh Festival, the Wickerman and the V Festival - there are hundreds upon hundreds of job opportunities for students floating through the festival events during the holidays every year.

The festival season starts out around June and runs right through to September, so the window of opportunity is open for a good few months over the summer holidays if you’d like to soak up some festival atmosphere without paying a penny.

How Much Do You Get Paid For Working At Festivals?
Institute of Art and Ideas
Not all festival jobs pay you a wage for the hours you work. Quite often, you will get a free weekend ticket to the festival, and all your food and drink while you are working. But that’s not to be sniffed at anyway, is it?

You could be the envy of all of your mates who might not be able to even get hold of tickets for love nor money!

And there’s another reason why you might want to find a festival job this summer…
Festival Jobs Can Make Your CV Sing
You probably don’t need much extra incentive to work in a festival job other than the fact that you have loads of fun and get to see great acts and entertainment for free.

But, even apart from all of that, students can benefit massively from the skills they can add to their CVs after working at a summer festival. Just some of the talents you might be able to display on your CV after working in a festival job are:
  • Customer Service Skills
  • Organising People
  • Time Management
  • Merchandising
  • Dedication
