Live Nation, one of the world’s largest concert promoter, is gearing up for its busiest season and will be providing summer jobs in more than 40 communities across the U.S. – including Auburn – and Canada.
Live Nation will present 811 concerts this summer at its 43 U.S. amphitheaters, including The Gorge in Quincy and the White River Amphitheatre in Auburn.
A variety of positions are available at nearly every venue, from stagehands and security personnel to ticket-takers and T-shirt sellers. The jobs typically pay between $9 and $15 an hour, and more for positions requiring specific skills.
Live Nation is hosting job fairs throughout Washington this month to hire for nearly 1,500 seasonal jobs in the state.
Fairs will be held for summer positions at The Gorge on April 15 at Wenatchee Valley Community College and on April 23 at Big Bend Community College in Moses Lake.
A job fair will also be held May 2 in Auburn to fill summer positions at the White River Amphitheatre from 4-8 p.m.
Summer employees will have the opportunity to work at shows coming to The Gorge and White River Amphitheatre over the next few months, including Coldplay, Nickelback, Rod Stewart and the Dave Matthews Band.
“We rely on our summer staff to make our shows run smoothly,” said Danny Wilde, senior vice president of Live Nation’s Washington venues. “This is our busiest season and we really value the workers who come out and do a great job of making every show a success.”
