Sarah Garcia consistently heard the comment, “You have the coolest job in the world!” so she decided to show people “A Day Behind the Music” and let them judge the coolness of her job in the music industry for themselves. From the early rise at 5:00 a.m. to the construction and deconstruction of a stage in less than 16 hours, and the catering, the security, the union labor, the heavy equipment, and the pyrotechnics, and finally from the settlement of the contract to the late departure, exhausted at 2:00 a.m. the following morning, Sarah Garcia shows us the real reasons she loves her job.
