In total, the lucky individual chosen for the role will attend 11 incredible festivals between May and August, filled with the sounds of the summer, tasty food trucks that have travelled from far and wide and too many acts and activities to count. Not only will this be the space to create, but it will also be a time full of unforgettable experiences, the stuff of legends.

Throughout this year’s summer of festival fun, there will be an array of acts filling the fields with life and great music. From being up In Da Club at Parklife in Manchester as 50 Cent hits the stage, to no place you’d rather be when Clean Bandit headlines Highest Point in Lancaster and definitely no tragedies when Kubix, held in Sunderland, host Steps as their Saturday headliner.

Festivals the successful applicant will be required to attend are:

Highest Point, Lancaster, 12 - 15 May
