If you think Rob da Bank is a criminal offence, a mosh pit is something you make compost in and Michael Eavis is that chap who presents the Antique Road Show, then perhaps stop reading now…If you are, however, a little more well informed, then you may be interested to know that applications open today for one of the most rock & roll jobs on the planet; a dream come true for any festival frequenting, gig going, sun loving, “last man standing”, “no desk job for me” type candidate. The role? Full Time International Globe Trotting Guide, Chaperone and Front Person for Trident’s Perpetual Festival Experience.

From Creamfields in Buenos Aires to Bestival on the Isle of Wight, these are just a couple of the 30 global festivals the lucky candidate will visit over a 30-week period as part of their full time role. Not all beer swilling and crowd surfing however, responsibilities will also include looking after weekly Perpetual Festival competition winners as part of an inspired sales promotion for Long Lasting Trident Gum which will be giving away global festival tickets plus other festival inspired instant win prizes.

As well as keeping a beady eye on the new weekly winners that join the Perpetual Festival, the candidate will also be expected to keep us poor souls back home updated on daily adventures. From tweets to blogs, photos and videos to celebrity interviews, they must bring to life their once in a lifetime musical expedition. And - for this prestigious role, the right candidate can expect to receive a cool £30,000 plus expenses.

So, if you think you have what it takes to convince a panel of judges who include George Lamb, Rob da Bank (Bestival curator) and Steve Jenner founder of that you are the person for the job, start the application process at today. From the applications received, 30 will be selected for interview, with the final 10 required to attend an assessment day in front of our panel of judges.
