Glastonbury Festival’s on-site radio station, Worthy FM, has announced its return for this year’s festival, and subsequently are reaching out for volunteers for Glastonbury week later this summer. The station, which is 100% volunteer-led, will be broadcasting live 24 hours a day from Monday 22nd June to midnight on Monday 29th June. If you’re looking to make your ways in radio, this is definitely one for you!
Worthy FM are looking for the following:
You should have a keen interest in the ethos of the Festival and the charities it supports. Worthy fm is looking for volunteers who are willing to collect audio and make features now ready for the broadcast. You will need your own audio recorder and be able to edit using Adobe Audition (or bring your own editing equipment). Audio will be played out in mp3 format. You will also need to be confident (or willing to learn) to go out into the crowd during the Festival and gather audio to make features. Creativity and originality is welcomed.
Night shift presenters between 03:00 – 07:00
These shows should reflect the Festival that never sleeps during these hours. You should ideally have experience of the Festival to understand what is going on. During the first days of broadcast before the Festival is open to the public you should have already gathered audio from the different areas to promote what will be going on. You will need to be able to collect audio and edit your material to play out in mp3 format.
