AV Companies that are hiring right now
Have you ever been at an outdoor festival and wondered about how everything came together? If you’ve ever thought about how cool it would be to help set sound systems or run audio at an event, I strongly urge you to consider a career in live sound production.
For every live event like concert of festival, there is a staff of dedication audio visual stage hands who have worked work day and night to make your experience the best it can be. In fact, the better they are at their job, the less you think about them. This is because we only tend to think about live production when something goes wrong, say a mic cuts out or sound levels are too low.
