If you’re looking for an adventure, to make new friends, and to make a difference, then read on to find out how you can become a festival crew member at Silverback!
You’ll be part of a dedicated group working behind the scenes to ensure the smooth-running of all types of Summer festivals. Duties include stage, marquee or VIP area set up, assembling rigging and props, operating AV equipment and plant machinery, loading/unloading, and building bespoke structures.
What Does It Take To Be a Festival Crew Member?
To be a festival crew member, you must be at least 18 years old, physically fit to work in all conditions and long hours (if necessary) at a broad range of music festivals and events. Most importantly, you need to be reliable, hardworking, and committed to the task at hand. Exceptional communication skills and a willingness to go above and beyond are also essential if you want to succeed.

It is a truly exciting and rewarding industry to work in, which is why so many current Silverbacks have been with us for over a decade! It is the perfect chance to meet new people and work in an incredibly supportive community, whilst gaining invaluable skills and onsite experience.
Work on a wide variety of events with an even wider range of people at some spectacular venues. Some private, some public, but all offer a work place like no other.
This is a fantastic role for individuals who are looking to jumpstart their career in live events and event management, or just searching for an exciting summer job during university or gap year.
