Calling all festival goers!

Would you enjoy music, surf, sea and sessions for free this summer?

Sea Sessions in one of Ireland’s best and upcoming surf and music festival held in Bundoran, Co. Donegal. It will be held this year on June 21st, 22nd and 23rd. It has been running consecutively for four years and has grown rapidly in a short space of time. The festival promotes new and upcoming artists as well as having played host to some of the biggest and best music names out there including Kaiser Chiefs and Bell X1 (2012).

Sea Sessions 2013 has teamed up with IT Sligo in order to make this year’s festival bigger and better than ever. A group of third year PR and Event Management students are applying their skills to recruit and manage this year’s volunteer programme. This is the first time the students have worked on an event of this calibre. It’s an exciting opportunity for Sea Session organisers, the students and IT Sligo.

The students have been given the task of recruiting new volunteers for the festival and will be doing this in a number of ways, look out for our Facebook and Twitter pages. Volunteers will be required to work over the course of the three day festival in three, four hour slots. Volunteers will be assigned different tasks throughout the course of the festival including pre festival preparation, stewards, tickets scanners, beach stewards, campsite stewards and even backstage crew!

This year the organisers have managed to get well known bands ‘Bastille’ and ‘The Original Rude boys’ to headline the festival, so obviously volunteers will get a chance to see both of these bands preform live. Sea Sessions has a genre for everyone ranging from indie, to dance to rock music. As it’s also a surf festival it makes it unique to every other festival in Ireland. It’s a great opportunity to meet other surf enthusiasts, dip your feet in the world of surfing and to catch some waves.  Why wouldn’t you want to go to a beach party like this all for only 12 hours’ work?

So why become a Sea Sessions volunteer you ask? Well you get to experience going to one of the best festivals in Ireland and you get to see a huge variety of different bands and artists, you only work a total of 12 hours the entire weekend and best off all? It’s completely free to volunteer for Sea Sessions!

60/70 volunteer will be required to work at this year’s festival so if you are interested or know someone who may be interested check out and sign up to volunteer! Keep an eye on both Facebook and Twitter pages also. The students will also be having an information day in the main concourse of IT Sligo on Wednesday the 17th of April between 1 and 3 pm, so head on down to find out more and to get involved!
