Production Days and Summer Festival Placements

This summer 102 students will have attended 10 Festivals, with the introduction of new places in technical and Artist Liaison roles.

Throughout Summer, we've had excellent feedback from students and tutors from Skills Academy colleges who have been going behind the scenes at some of the UK’s biggest festivals ranging from Download, Latitude and V Festival at a series of Production Days.

In addition, Festival Republic, Live Nation and the National Skills Academy for Creative & Cultural have provided a total of 12 work experience placements for 18+ students in the Artist Liaison and Production teams of major festivals this summer. For more information please click here.

Autumn Production Day dates are to be launched soon, but we can announce that the tour will include the Vaccines and Prodigy across November and December. If this is an opportunity that you would like to take up, please discuss this with your Skills Academy Manager for membership level and eligibility.

I found it a very informative experience and as it was the first time I had ever seen the sound desks at a festival and the stage setup before the acts, it gave me a real insight into how the whole running of these shows go.
