💀 Metalesque Fest 2023 Staff Application & Waiver 💀

Please fill out this form if you are interested in being on paid staff for Metalesque Fest 2023. Please review the info and fill out the form. We have combined the application and waiver into one form so that IF you are hired, you have already read, understand and have signed the waiver.


YOU WILL RECEIVE AN AUTO EMAIL ONCE YOU FILL OUT THIS FORM, PLEASE DON'T DELETE IT! It contains important info about the shows that you may need to reference later.

We will email you as soon as we can once the applications close. We get a lot of applications for staff positions, and we have limited positions available! We cannot guarantee a position for all applicants.

We pay all staff a flat fee (amount listed by each position below) on show night.

We do NOT ask performers in the show to tip you out, and we ask that you also refrain from asking for tips.

We do NOT offer guest list spots for staff. If you want to attend a show night that you are not working, you will need to purchase a ticket (unless you are also booked as a performer).

When you are booked to work the fest, you will be added to a private Instagram group we have for the Fest staff and performers.

You are invited to attend our brunch for staff and performers on Sunday, October 8. More info will be posted in the IG group.

Below are descriptions of available staff positions. Please review them and be prepared to choose which ones you are interested at the bottom of this survey.

Show nights are:
Friday, October 6 at Dantes in Portland OR

Door person: ($40 flat fee payment) This position is only available for NIGHT ONE at Dantes. Earlier call time. You must sit there at least one hour before show time and through the entire intermission. (bathroom break is ok once the show starts.) You will be working closely with the Seating Assistant. This job is for a patient person who does not lose their cool! There will be a line. You are checking in people who have purchased tickets, you are accepting payments from people who are buying tickets. You are marking down how many tickets you sell at the door. We ask that you have experience doing door.

Seating Assistant/Tip Tart: ($40 flat fee payment) We will be hiring multiple people for this position. PRE-SHOW: You are standing by the door person and helping people find their seats as they enter, telling them where VIP seats are, where GA seats are, etc. You should wear flat shoes and a comfortable outfit and be able to go up and down flights of stairs. You may need to verify people have certain seats by asking them to show you their ticket purchase confirmation on their phones. DURING THE SHOW: You will be quickly going through the audience after each act, collecting tips for every performer and then delivering those tips to each individual performer right away, so that you are ready to collect tips for the next performer. You will be moving quickly the entire show and will only get a break at intermission. You may have to go up and down stairs. Please be willing to dress up (comfy/flat shoes are helpful) and work the room very quickly.

Merch Sales Assistant: ($40 flat fee payment) You are stationed at the merch table before and during the show to help people find the right size or item, make sales, give change. 

Raffle Sales: ($40 flat fee payment) You will sell raffle tickets pre-show and during intermission. Please be willing to dress up (comfy/flat shoes are helpful) and work the room! You must be very outgoing and be a salesperson for this job, willing to ask people multiple times to tip or buy raffle tickets. There will be a printout of raffle items on each table, so you will not have to explain the prizes. You can just say “read the info and I will be back around” to customers. You will need to make cash change and ask for them to show you proof of purchase on their phone.

Stage Kitten: ($40 flat fee payment) You will be helping the stage manager set up and pickup for every performer, going up and down the stage stairs, and doing some lifting of props. Please be willing to dress up (comfy/flat shoes are helpful).

Music Player ($40 flat fee payment) You will need to arrive early pre-show to review the music playlist with an SOTB producer. You are sitting in the sound booth with the venue’s staff and following along with the show flow, pressing play/stop for each musical act. We ask that you not drink alcohol before or during the show, since this job requires that you pay close attention to what is going on on stage.
