Music Event Operations

On Sunday 6th June 2021, life will be a little more normal in the UK. We will be looking for opportunities to celebrate and enjoy the summer. For performing artists, however, they will still be locked out of many performing opportunities with restrictions in audience numbers expected to still be in place and many venues unlikely to reopen.

Across Sedgemoor, however, local artists will be coming out to play! As part of the Front Garden Music Festival they will literally step out their front doors, set up in their front gardens and perform for neighbours and passers-by. The event will also be live streamed with artists encouraged to live stream their own performance, and an official roaming live stream team of three travelling across Sedgemoor to capture the highlights.

The opportunity

We are seeking expressions of interest from suitably experienced freelancers or organisations who can work with us to plan and deliver the event, through providing operational and logistic support including:

  • Assisting in selecting and programming performers
  • Scheduling the event day
  • Risk assessment and management
  • Ensuring compliance with Government Covid19 guidance and the restrictions that are in place on event day
  • Securing any required permissions from District, Town and Parish Councils
  • Liaising with and providing advice and support to performers including risk management
  • Planning live streaming including developing an expression of interest for provision of live streaming services by a third party
  • Contributing to project documentation, evaluation, marketing and promotion.

A fee of £4,000 inclusive of VAT is available for the provision of these services.
