GBTRS x Danny Wimmer Presents Hometown Rising- Festival Immersion Program

We’re excited to announce our partnership with Danny Wimmer Presents to institute our festival immersion program at Hometown Rising

DWP is giving ten hard-working, energetic interns an exclusive opportunity to work with a variety of departments, all equally important in putting together a large-scale festival. This is a unique (and exciting!) experience to join the behind-the-scenes action of a week in the life of concert promoters as they prepare for a first-year festival.

From September 9th through September 15th, we will be selecting 10 women/non-binary people to intern in various festival departments and learn what it ‘s like to put on a festival.

Ten (10) winners will be chosen. All participants are responsible for their own travel and lodging.

Participating Departments

  • Box Office
  • Sponsorship
  • Content
  • Social Marketing
  • Site Operations
  • Artist Relations
  • Production
  • Culinary Activations
  • Festival Office
  • Food & Beverage Concessionaire

We aim to open the door for dedicated and qualified young women/non-men to gain practical experience in a live music context. This is a risk-free opportunity for people of underrepresented genders to get the chance to learn from mentors in the field. Ten winners will be chosen.

Applications for this opportunity are now closed. Thank you for your interest!

Keep an eye out on our socials, @GirlsBTRS, as we will be posting reminders about deadlines and new opportunities.


GBTRS was founded on the principle of female empowerment within the music industry. We are dedicated to helping artists and bands drive female empowerment and diversity in productive and positive ways, and promoting these initiatives throughout the culture of the music scene.
