Ambassador slots available

The organisers of RockNess 2011 have appealed for help from music fans, launching their new ambassador scheme.

Situated on the banks of Loch Ness, RockNess is one of Europe's most scenic festivals. Now entering its fifth year, the event is near annually growing in capacity with this year seeing The Strokes, Vampire Weekend and more entertaining the crowds.

Returning next summer, the organisers of RockNess are set to take a handful of fans onboard to assist with the running of the event. Throwing open the doors for just a few lucky punters, successful applicants will get invaluable hands on experience at an award winning festival.

Started last year, the new scheme aims to help fans gain access to an often formidable industry. RockNess are wanting young go-getters to act as Ambassadors for the festival, helping to market and promote the event in their own area.

The lucky winner will gain a six month internship at AEG Live, one of the largest entertainment companies on the planet. The lucky intern will work alongside Jim King, a director of RockNess and a Managing Director of Loud Sound.

Last year's winner Stephen Fraser talks about the scheme. “The AEG Ambassador scheme was a great success, being a student looking for jobs in music, I soon found out that it can be very hard to find that first 'big break'. The ambassador scheme gave me the opportunity to show what I can do on a professional scale."

"It is a great insight to how a big promotions company works. Peers and industry professionals now take me more seriously as I now have the contacts and the AEG name on my CV. The scheme is beneficial both in terms of contacts and furthermore money. For being an ambassador, I received a free ticket to Rockness and also ticket-based commission."

"It pays to put 110% into your promotions as the cash rewards will be even greater. Working as an ambassador paid off all my student debts and now I'm to start working in the big smoke for an established worldwide promotions company. IDEAL.“
