Geelong searching for event producer to launch Secret Sounds music festival


The City of Greater Geelong is searching for an event producer to design and deliver the Surround Sounds Festival 2024, which will feature musicians and artists across a range of genres.

The Surround Sounds Festival is expected to run from 26 April to 5 May 2024 and is tied to the region’s long-term goals to expand and support live music, arts and culture.

An Expression of Interest (EOI) process is underway to find a candidate who will establish the festival as a major cultural event in the lead up to the 2026 Commonwealth Games.

Applicants must have experience in event design and delivery, an understanding of music and the wider creative industries and curatorial frameworks, local government priorities and planning, and commissioning models.

“The role is an amazing opportunity to be part of something big in a UNESCO Creative City of Design that will bring joy to community members and support the music and creative industries, which have done it tough during the pandemic,” said Mayor Trent Sullivan.

Applications close at 2:00pm on Thursday 13 April 2023.
