Thanks for the heads up. I sent them an email about interning a couple months ago but never heard back. Just applied again.

I also wish more companies would advertise their internships through this site.

I really recommend applying. I've done a lot of internships and this was by far my favorite/most productive

What did you learn? I'm moving to LA soon to pursue a career in artist management.

I was dealing mostly with social media, touring and radio promotion, but there was something new every day. You get to make some great connections too

Sounds awesome. Wish they were looking for more than 1 person though. What'd you do with social media? I've always wondered how social media marketing worked.

What kind of resume do they look for? I mean will they accept anyone who is willing or do you have to some background in those fields already? I applied for the No Sleep internship but never got a call back and I think it's cause I didn't have any experience in any of the fields these kinds of agencies look for :(

having experience is a big plus, but I'm sure they'll consider anyone who's hard working and passionate about this industry

I've never understood why so many internships require experience. Really makes no sense to me.

'Cause they want free labour. But I agree, I feel that the point of an internship is to learn and gain experience.

How are you supposed to have gained experience if entry-level positions (re: internships) require it? And I guess passion wasn't enough on my resume, I made it adamantly clear how much I cared about the label/bands but still not even a interview...

I mean, you don't necessarily need to get an internship to start gaining experience. Be part of a street team, work with local bands, do other volunteer work, or even start a blog. All that counts as experience in this industry and it should go on your resume.
