Music Industry City / Future Music Forum offers rolling internship opportunities throughout the year. Please note that some are for Music Industry City as a whole and some are specific to the Future Music Forum: Barcelona conference. 

MIC Internship Program

Music Industry City / Future Music Forum is a global industry lifestyle community, digital broadcast network, and event series – with a decade-old flagship conference held each year in Barcelona.

Based in New York and Barcelona, MIC’s core mission is to provide innovative, informative, and inspirational content for people in the creative and business fields of the industry. 

Our programming consists of conversations and themes that look at the industry as a way of life. We cover the music and entertainment industries, news, technology, educational resources, health and wellness, personal and career development, and industry-related topics.

All positions are remote.

We believe that the value of an internship revolves around the people you work with and the relationships you form to help you grow. Our 3-month internship program provides you with a true learning experience as well as hands-on experience relevant to your career goals. We value accountability and allow our interns to be a part of the process in developing a narrative around our programming and assist you in developing your portfolio.

We hold AMA’s with the MIC team to help answer questions you have about the industry. We frequently bring in industry guests to address your questions, and we do so in a fun and relaxed setting in one of the MIC metaverses.

These are part-time internships. Credits can be applied to school where applicable. All people who successfully complete the internship program will receive lifelong free access to the premium website and our annual conference, as well as additional benefits.

If you think any of these opportunities are for you, then apply today. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis.

Apply here.

We look forward to hearing from you!
