Join our team now!
No matter of you’re already experienced in your field or if you’re just starting: we are always looking for fun people who love music as much as we do and love writing about it.
What we can offer:
A great team: we are all down-to-earth people who have met each other on shows, online or via GENRE IS DEAD! Magazine. We have a Whatsapp group chat in which we don’t only coordinate our work with GID, but also talk about music and what ever is happening in our lives.
No pressure: the work on GID is unpaid, thus we all have a “real life” that has to come first, such as jobs, studies, school or families. We are incredibly thankful with all you have to offer. You can’t deal with the workload? No problem! Just communicate with us, so we can coordinate everyone’s workload beforehand, especially when it comes to concert reviews and interviews since we have to organize them with the bands.
Guestlist spots, photo passes, the opportunity to interview your favorite artists
