1 person is interested
We are seeking a Social Media Manager (or small team) to help promote our music festival and the bands selected to participate. This job includes gathering social media tags for all participants, attending concert events, taking creative and interesting photos, creating compelling photo collages, posting to social media, and tagging participants and sponsors. There are four Preliminary Concerts (May 31, June 7, June 14, June 21) and our Grand Finale (July 4). Additionally, we require assistance getting the word out to potential bands to apply to participate.
The Bitter Jester Music Festival (BJMF) is the Midwest's largest professional music competition for rising-star musicians (bands and solo artists alike). BJMF supports and promotes young and emerging talent from across Illinois and Wisconsin. The competition gives participating young adults an opportunity to receive professional feedback from working musicians and, most importantly, meet and connect with dozens of other musicians their own age. Additionally, performers get to work hand-in-hand with Bitter Jester Studio’s eight-time Emmy award winning production team, providing the competitors with a level of media exposure, professional mentorship, and networking that is unmatched by other similar competitions.
Currently, the event has four preliminary competitions on consecutive Fridays in the summer at Port Clinton Square in downtown Highland Park, IL. A winner is selected by qualified judges each Friday to compete in the Grand Finale Concert. After all four preliminary competitions, judges and Bitter Jester staff decide on four "Wild Card" bands that will also compete for the title at a Grand Finale concert on July 4 leading up to the City of Highland Park's fireworks display. Showcase bands are also selected to perform on the big stage prior to the battle on the 4th of July.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
