Nelsonville Music Festival Production

Students work on recording equipment backstage during the 2022 Nelsonville Music Festival

The Nelsonville Music Festival is an annual three-day music festival in Southeast Ohio that brings in both well-known and up-and-coming music artists. During the four days of the Nelsonville Music Festival Production Courses, students learn how to film each artists’ set, work on stage management, oversee artist relations, record performances and overall learn about the ins and outs of producing a live event.
Students engage with a faculty and festival team from the Scripps College of Communication, WOUB Public Media and the Nelsonville Music Fest staff. They learn how to work with different people and interface with leadership and artists directly, manage and prepare the stage, research and do technical direction — everything that is needed to produce a live music event.
This experience provides students with resume-ready experience and learning opportunities by working with established and rising artists and get to produce on a number of levels.

Those interested can reach out to Josh Antonuccio.

“Working sound at Nelsonville Music Fest was my first real live music experience, and it taught me a lot of important things about the workflow of it all. I think it was a great first step into the live industry, and the music was great too." —Seth Rhodes, Music Production and Recording Industry major
