Event Information


Experienced team members capable of leading on the MagicFest floor are crucial to running an excellent event, and CFB Events is excited to invite you to join our onsite leadership team for MagicFest Barcelona. Please take note that ALL leadership positions for MagicFest Barcelona will be filled through this CORE application; there will NOT be an opportunity to apply for a leadership position through the individual event application.


Please be sure to read the entire application carefully before applying. The application window will close at 11:59 PM (23:59) CST on Friday, May 3rd, 2018.


2-3 Days


This application offers the option of confirming TWO days at the leadership pay rate and ONE day at the standard rate for this event. If you are only available for two days, that’s not a problem; just apply for two days, and you will still be eligible for leadership compensation for those two days.




Culturally, leadership is more than a title and level. As a leader at MagicFest Barcelona, you are expected to invest in your team members, collaborating with them, helping one another to grow and to gain the valuable experience that each MagicFest offers.

We also received a lot of feedback on compensation. Based on that feedback, we are happy to offer Leaders who join our onsite team through this application the following compensation rates (this does not include Thursday Set-Up). Please note that default compensation rates include booster display boxes from the most recent Standard set. Successful applicants may select an all-cash option prior to this MagicFest event if that is prefered. Compensation rates that do not include boxes are listed in brackets after the default rates:
