Ravinia, North America's oldest music festival, stands today as its most musically diverse, presenting over 140 different events throughout the summer. Ravinia is an internationally renowned, not-for-profit music festival that presents outstanding performances by the world’s greatest artists.
Throughout the 2018 festival season I worked as a merchandiser for both Ravinia and the artists who played the festival. Some of the artists I sold merch for include, but aren't limited to: ZZ Top, Diana Ross, 50 Cent, Stephen Marley, and more.
While merchandising some of my duties included:
Counted in and out merchandise, kept records on quantities and sales, facilitated comps/adds/VIP, and assisted in settlement
Set up and tore down our merchandise area before and after park open/close each day
Sold for artists prior to, during, and post-performance every night
Helped guests find the right size/product they were seeking, answered general questions about merchandise, Ravinia, and artists, explained pricing and different purchase methods, and kept track of sales/inventory
