INDIO, Calif. -

Calling on all Valley locals, Goldenvoice, the producer of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival and Stagecoach Country Music Festival, is looking to hire.

"They know locals know the area best. They know locals are the ones who can come in and fill the positions as quick as possible and do an efficient job," said Indio City Councilwoman Lupe Ramos Watson.

To fill nearly 200 hourly temp positions for the month of April, she says the promoter will host a job fair this Friday, March 15, at its office from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 45149 Smurr Street, in Indio.

Hourly temp positions will be available for tollbooth staff and stagehands, as well as in such areas as customer service, camping and lost and found, Goldenvoice spokeswoman Lindsay Lyons said.

Applications will be available on the day of the job fair to complete. Proof of California work eligibility is required. Interviews with department heads are first-come, first-served.

Starting Wednesday, March 13, applicants can visit the Smurr Street office for a full listing of job descriptions.

"They know locals know the area best. They know locals are the ones who can come in and fill the positions as quick as possible and do an efficient job," said Indio City Councilwoman Lupe Ramos Watson.

Annual concertgoer Alex Torres says he's hoping to snag one.

"I do everything as far as festivals are concerned," he said

He is not the only one.

"There's going to be more than 200 people applying. I can tell you that right now.”    

The hot line up at Coachella Fest alone draws in more than $80,000 music lovers a weekend.

"This is seen as an economic engine for the Coachella Valley as a whole," said Ramos Watson.

For Torres, an opportunity to help man the grounds of the Empire Polo Club for the festivals would be a little taste of paradise. He says the perks include, “participating and listening while working and getting paid."
