Show Experience Lead| CONCERT OPERATIONS

We’re Sofar Sounds, your global music community. We create space where music matters. We’re artists, music lovers and organisers. We create, perform, listen and work to make intimate live music experiences that connect us all.

Sofar brings people together in unexpected spaces in over 400 cities around the world. Every show is focused on the artist. And every show is intimate, creative and inclusive.

Our Mission:
We each have our favourite Sofar artist(s), but one thing we all have in common is that we just really love music here. There is no other feeling in the world like discovering and experiencing new music and artists in a living room or in our online listening room. In any Sofar room IRL or virtual, when the audience has hushed and that first note is played - it’s magical! We share stories, tears, smiles, laughter and a whole lotta love. If that makes your eyes open a little wider and gives your soul tingles - then Sofar is probably the place for you. Come and help us create space where music matters.
