Amazon won't only be selling or streaming music, but also in the business of music festivals. This is according to a job advertisement by the company as it is looking to hire a "Senior Program Manager, Music".
In the job advertisement for the position, Amazon states that "thirty-two million people attend music festivals in the United States each year. Amazon wants to dramatically improve their festival experience through our signature focus on innovating on behalf of our customers".
This is definetly not the first hint by Amazon that it will be looking to go into the music festival business, as last year they placed a job advertisement with the Music Business Worldwide publication for a "Senior Business Development Manager, Music at Amazon Tickets".
The role of the The Senior Program Manager, Music at Amazon states that the successful candidate "will take an idea – to have a physical festival presence with on-site food and product delivery, custom tour merchandise for purchase, artist meet and greets, and convenience amenities such as free Wi-Fi, water, charging stations, and restrooms – and bring it to life".
Coupled with Amazon Tickets - which offers their customers the ability to purchase tickets to music, theatre, and comedy events - this will surely be an interesting business division to observe at Amazon as it doesn't have much similarities to anything they currently offer as a business.
