Head For The Hills is a music and arts festival which takes place at Ramsbottom Cricket Ground just 12 miles outside of Manchester this weekend, featuring headliners such as The Slow Readers Club and The Boomtown Rats. The festival is curated by The Met in Bury where BIMM Manchester Music Business student Amy Pirie is the Marketing Assistant.

It’s Amy’s job to ensure the festival has been publicised all over social media as well as creating visual marketing such as signs, posters and much more. We caught up with the young music business professional about her involvement, as well as other BIMM students. 

“We have lots of BIMM students working behind the scenes at Head For The Hills to ensure the festival all runs smoothly. Roles include Social Media Volunteers working for myself and general volunteers ensuring that the guests have the best time. We also have BIMM artist liaison, Dana who is working hands on with the artists before and during the festival.”

She summed up her experience in the lead up to the festival so far.

Work behind the scenes in the run up to Head For The Hills has been crazy, exciting, stressful and so rewarding. The lineup also features BIMM Alumni Jess Kemp who will be performing on our T’Other Stage on Saturday.”

Weekend and day tickets for Run To The Hills festival are still available via the official website
