Why did you want to intern at the Do LaB?
I went to Coachella for the first time in 2016 and visited the Do LaB stage. From that point on, I knew I wanted to get involved with helping create the experience that Do LaB puts on for festival goers.
What are some things you have learned so far?
Something I have come to appreciate is the sheer amount of planning that goes into making a music festival happen. As someone who has been to many music festivals, I thought I had a general idea of everything that is needed to make an event like LIB possible. However, there are so many minute details that need to be considered in order for everything to run as smooth as possible.
What are your career goals and how has Do LaB prepared you to achieve them?
I want to work in the music business industry and Do LaB has given me a better understanding of everything that goes into the planning process of a music festival. I’ll be able to utilize this knowledge in the future when planning music festivals and other events.
What is the best thing about interning at Do LaB?
The office is based in Downtown LA and is surrounded by a ton of amazing restaurants. I’ve been able to walk around the city and discover new places that I would not have known about before.
