Recruitment for the annual Shambhala Music Festival is well underway. Each year, the festival recruits over 2,500 crew members, with over 600 of those being paid positions. The majority of positions range between Aug. 5 to 13, although longer and shorter term contracts do exist.
The festival thanks everyone who visited their job fair last month and is pleased to announce a second job fair on Thursday, June 6, the final one of the season. The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. outside the Shambhala headquarters in Nelson at 295 Baker St. This event will be a great opportunity for community members interested in working or volunteering for the festival to ask any questions and meet an HR representative face-to-face. There will also be a prize draw and free cake.
Positions are available to suit many different skill sets and experience. There are many opportunities for locals to get involved with the festival pre-show, with positions available throughout July and August. Pre-show volunteer opportunities on the Salmo River Ranch include office duties, traffic control set-up, landscaping, site maintenance and more. During showtime, the festival recruits for a wide range of positions within food and beverage, retail, traffic control and other site operations departments.
Shambhala is a celebration of music, art, and life, produced in one of the most beautiful festival venues in the world: the Salmo River Ranch. Unique to the core, Shambhala baffles the event industry by modelling an event completely free of corporate sponsorship.
