Press for Hopscotch Music Festival
Hey everyone! Hooligan is excited to be covering numerous festivals this summer/fall for a special festival issue. We recently got approved to cover Hopscotch Music Fest and I'm looking for a writer to join me on this journey to Raleigh, NC!
What is Hopscotch Music Fest?
"With 120 bands over 3 days, Hopscotch is known for adventurous lineups, memorable performances, and a fan-friendly atmosphere. From a large outdoor main stage in Raleigh City Plaza to intimate club shows, the festival features music in almost every genre imaginable—rock, hip-hop, metal, folk, electronic, experimental, and more—and its schedule highlights this diversity each year. With official programming stretching across 12 walkable venues, an art exhibition, more than 30 day parties, and the Hopscotch Design Festival, Hopscotch is a city-wide celebration for locals and fans visiting from faraway locales."
What are we looking for?
We are looking for a writer who is ready to take on a special place on the Hooligan team and who is dedicated to their work, art, and connections they're looking to make from this experience. We are looking for a writer who has preferably worked with writing about music and artists, and has a unique taste and holds a great creative direction. We want you to brag on your application if you think you're perfect for this. We are looking for a writer who has strong social skills. We are looking for a writer who is prepared to be organized, independent, and professional but still in it to have a great time. We are looking for a writer who is prepared to be a part of pre-coverage, live coverage, and post-coverage for this festival. We are looking for a writer who wants to grow with Hooligan, who has experience networking with artists, and is looking to take home a handful of new connections.
How will we get there?
Morgan will be driving! Don't worry about money for gas, she's got that taken care of. What you will need: money for food, money for any merchandise or special goods you want to buy for yourself, and if you'd love to help with a place to stay, that would be awesome! Options obviously will be airbnb, hotel, or friends places (I'm sure we've got a couple!) but we'll discuss all this further once you are chosen.
What else do I need to do besides fill out this application?
Please send, in your opinion, your TWO best pieces of writing (published or not published) and any other materials that may help your application to firstname.lastname@example.org
Cool, what else?
Be ready for new friendship, road-trip jams, and THREE days of great music.
