We have an exciting opportunity for four aspiring sound engineers to attend Glastonbury Festival 2024, working on electronic dance music events. Young people accepted on to the programme will undertake one full day and two evening sessions of training, plus some work experience. Based on their performance and commitment, four young people will be chosen to go to Glastonbury.

Those selected will gain invaluable experience working at a large-scale live event, have all their expenses covered (plus be paid!) and have some free time to explore the festival.
