Calling All Journalists! Get Your Simmer Down Press Pass!

July 4th, 2014 2:23 pm

Are you a blogger, Youtuber, Tumblr or Tweeter following the Music and Festivals scene in Birmingham? Want the chance to cover Simmer Down Festival 2014, Birmingham’s biggest free family music festival of the Summer, and team up with The Drum to share your work? Then this is for you…

We will be making a limited number of Press Passes available to budding journalists interested in covering the festival on Sun 20 July in Handsworth Park.

Take photos, record video, interview the crowd and performers, live blog or Tweet and Post – whatever you do, you’ll have a chance to meet artists, soak up the sunshine and really get into the festival spirit, then work with us to share it!

Any interviews, videos or photographs of the day will be shared with The Drum and made part of the Simmer Down Festival Archive, helping us to document that day, giving you great exposure for your work, and a great experience covering live events.

Think you’ve got what it takes to get a great story and celebrate Simmer Down? Then get in touch! DM us on Social Media, call 0121 333 2420, or email n.lunt@the-drum.org.uk with some info on what you can do. We’ll be in touch with the successful applicants by Fri 11 July. Good luck, and hope to hear from you soon!
