One person at the time, and we can change the World!

With this philosophy RockCorps started in 2005 in United States, and now they have changed the mind of more than 81,000 people who become volunteers that have donated more than 324,000 hours of their time to social causes, in USA, England, France and Israel.

Supersonic in search for the best people September 4, 2010

SuperSonic 2010

SuperSonic 2010

One of my favourite events is happening again this year, Supersonic coming live again in October for the weekend of the 22nd to the 24th.

This events is one of my favourite not only because I have been part of the team since 2008, when I as the production intern, is because the whole atmosphere of the event itself. The amazing people who put this together, the great group of volunteers who offers their time just to be part of this, the audience who come to enjoy and find all those new bands that Lisa and Jenny put together for us to know, and the venue, The Custard Factory itself that bring a unique energy and atmosphere that always make want to be part of it.

As being a month ahead of the festival we start looking for those amazing people that will help us to put together and deliver the best festival this year, Supersonic is looking for VOLUNTEERS.

For more information go to the info page of Supersonic’s website or simply email: volunteer [at] and write VOLUNTEER in subject to show your interest.

We are also looking for people with a great eye, who capture the right moments. So PHOTOGRAPHERS if you want to be part os this festival write to volunteer [at]  and write PHOTOGRAPHER to show your interest.

The team will get back to you as soon as possible with the application form, and see you in October.



SuperSonic 2010

Well you all might now that this year SuperSonic has changed the date for October and is promising to be better that before (well knowing Lisa and Jenny you know that is possible), but I want to take to the opportunity to let you know that they are looking for a great people to be part of their team. Well our team, because this year I will be the Site Manager, that’s right:).

This blog post is too late to inform the Operational Manager position, the deadline was yesterday. But you can still make it for the Interns and Volunteer positions.

I have to say that be part of this team is amazing and you are able to learn lots of music, events, marketing, deal with artists, and not that nice things like cleaning and be aware of recycling, but is a great opportunity to meet amazing people, listening great bands and be part of one of the best festivals in the UK and maybe the world. I started being a production intern in 2008 in charge of the merchandise area, and I did it so well (that was Lisa and Jenny said), that last year I was the Production Coordinator. So is a great place to build your career and learn.

So if you are interest in applying to be an intern follow this link and apply, you won’t regret it.

The intern positions available are:

–          Production

–          Marketing

–          Design

To volunteer is this link.


The Secret of Kells March 29, 2010

Little Aisling

This weekend as part of Flatpack Festival I had the opportunity to watch this outstanding film, according to the description:

Twelve year-old Brendan lives in an abbey with his grumpy uncle and a motley group of monks. One day they are joined by the legendary illustrator Brother Aidan, who tells tales of Viking invaders and brings in his bag an amazing secret; the Book of Kells. This unique film tells the tale of how the sacred text was completed and survived to become one of Ireland’s national treasures. With animation which is nearly as beautiful as the book itself – especially when Brendan ventures beyond the town walls to meet naughty forest-sprite Aisling – The Secret of Kells’ recent Oscar nomination was richly deserved.

Dir: Tomm Moore
Ireland/France/Belgium 2009
With: Brendan Gleeson, Evan McGuire, Christen Mooney, Mick Lally
Certificate: PG


What I loved the most besides the story was their graphics. This animation film has a beautiful collection of drawings fully decorated with stunning colour, combination of greens, browns, blues, etc.

Also the music is beautiful, loved the song signing by little Aisling, when is allowing the cat to do what she can’t do, the message of co-working with others is a good sense.

Don’t know where you will be able to watch this movie, probably you can ask Ian from Flatpack to programme another night, but you definitely should watch it.

Couldn’t see much this year of the festival (last year either) but I love this festival; love the people, the programme and all the vibe that you have around. Really missed not being there for the whole time, but want to congratulate Ian & Pip, and the whole team who made this happened.  

My favourite piece - The Forest
