Do LaB Staff Pick: Freddie Kirk

With a spunky spirit, go-getter attitude, and the wherewithal to keep things running smoothly in the realm of festival glamping, our Boutique Camping Director—Freddie Kirk—is one of a kind. He always strives to keep his colleagues and campers comfortable, doing so with a smile and usually a witty joke to pair. When he’s not checking in attendees and helping them get settled into their weekend homes, you can usually find him carting around the festival on a mission to make sure everything is impeccable inside the boutique campgrounds. Thank you for all that you DO, and for always making us laugh!

Name: Freddie Kirk
Title: Boutique Camping Director

What’s a topic you’re currently intrigued by or passionate about?

All things Japan.

Why is that topic important to you?

Cause I’m going on holiday there in 2 weeks and can’t get enough. Food, etiquette, bullet trains, onsens. Did you know Japanese cuisine has UNESCO cultural heritage status? Fascinating. Feels like I’m going to another world!

What’s a lesson you’ve learned from festivals?

Jeez, where do I start? I’ve learned to never assume anything. Even if you’re doing the same thing year in year out, assuming things can bite you in the ass.

What artist would you leave on repeat the whole way home?

I’m more of a shuffle guy but like the new Jamiroquai, Fever Rey, The War on Drugs, St. Vincent, old Depeche Mode. Throw in some of The Cure and a few compilations from some reliable dj friends and I’m good to go.
