  • Paid apprentices in festival management for Central Otago residents

The Wakatipu Music Festival is offering you a singular opportunity to launch your career – and in the arts sector where the few coveted roles in Wakatipu are often snapped up by those with overseas experience. The Wakatipu Music Festival is now receiving applications for our 9 paid apprenticeships in our Training Ground programme. If you have a passion for the arts, are based in Central Otago, can legally work in New Zealand and have some interest and knowledge in areas like marketing and communications, catering, AV tech, stage management and production, we want to hear from you.

Mentored by a professional who is a leader in their field, our apprentices will deliver the presentation of the 2021 Wakatipu Music Festival. You will work with outstanding emerging artists and leading professional musicians, local performers, and local and national educators. Not only will you help spearhead the growth of arts and cultural events in the Wakatipu basin, but you will get rare hands-on professional experience in delivering a music festival.

Applications close Monday 22 March.  You can learn more about each apprentice role and submit your expression of interest here.
