So if you have the time and energy, please sign up to become a volunteer this year. We need one able body for each location to act as the Lead volunteer for both days. You'll take charge of placing your volunteer staff in their assigned position, overseeing their responsibilities, granting breaks and you'll get to float through the venue enjoying the music selections! This is the most important roll as a volunteer and we are looking for folks we can trust as our Volunteer Coordinator can't be in 8 places at once!
For the rest of the festival, we are looking for volunteers who are able to handle the rolls below. All volunteers will receive a staff shirt and free admission to all events on your night off. Of course we would love to have you both nights if you can! Shoot us all of your contact information and we will be in touch with you for more details per the training session. Also specify which positions you would be most interested in and if you have a specific venue you would prefer to assist. Check out the Schedule HERE. And the Volunteer Site HERE.
