Join Silverback’s Summer Festival Crew!

Are you ready to take your love for music, food, culture, comedy or film to the next level? Joining our team is an excellent opportunity to get closer to the action and experience the buzz and excitement of live events this Summer! 

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! 

What’s Involved? 

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. 

What are The Benefits of Joining Silverback’s Crew for Summer Festivals?

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. Don’t worry if you haven’t pitched a tent or set up a stage before – we’re looking for candidates with passion, a strong work ethic, and a “let’s do this” mentality. 

Apply now For Summer! 

To apply, head over to the Silverback Events website and look for the careers tab. 

From here, you can fill out an application form for one of our nationwide offices in Manchester, Leeds, London, Birmingham, Glasgow or Edinburgh, indicating your name, details, areas of interest, experience and availability. 

It’s recommended that you apply early, as the selection process is competitive, and there are only so many spots available. 

Once you’ve submitted your application, expect to receive a response within a few weeks. If accepted, you’ll undergo a thorough induction that will explain your roles and responsibilities in more detail, before receiving a clear training plan.

I am so pleased to have had your guys on site today. They were very professional, and no job was too big or too small. They only stopped occasionally when I asked them to, as I felt they must need a break/drink but if I didn’t ask, I think they would have just carried on…… They were fantastic and couldn’t have been more helpful.”
