Northern Sound System


Striking The Right Note

Northern Sound System has up to 25 young volunteers who support the team in programs for music creation, gaming, broadcasting and VFX. Volunteers also help at NSS’ live events supporting promotion, set up, lighting and sound.

Michael, 20, has volunteered for seven years supporting live music events from set up to now operating technical equipment.

Michael said the skills he has learned managing shows has been a great door way into the industry.

“From here I have got to work with some people who do staffing for events, so I have been able to U2, Elton John, I have worked on a couple of other big ones – the Jimmy Barnes one recently, it’s just been great getting into the industry,” he said.
