What does a Moontower Volunteer do? Depending on the shift you register for, you might be helping with…
Hospitality – greeting and checking in our artists and VIP guests.
Line Management – people like to know what’s going on. What line should I be in? When will the seating open? I’m a VIP – where do I go? Can I park over there? Is this going to fill up before I can get in? Where’s ____ venue and who’s there?
Badge checker – The stinking badges are uber important. You’ll know who’s in and who’s out.
Counter – how many badges have entered? How many single tickets? How many VIP’s? How many total? What does the fire code allow? How close are we to capacity? Keep it all organized and up-to-date.
General Help – Ticket taking or crowd seating or running an errand or setting up chairs or getting something for the stage manager or, well, you get the picture.
Break Down – Oh, and everybody pitches in at the end of shows to clear the crowd out and re-set for the next set.
Have questions? We’ve got answers!
How old do I have to be? 18 and over, please.
Is there a minimum number of volunteer nights? Yes, you must be able to volunteer for at least two nights.
What are the shift times, and how long are they? For the most part, our volunteers help out between 4:00 pm and 12:00 am during the fest; shifts are between 4 and 6 hours each.
What do volunteers get? Lots of love from the festival team, as well as some really cool bennies:
A cool t-shirt!
Free entry into shows (on the day you are volunteering, before or after your shift).
You will probably see most of the show(s) you work. Volunteers will tag-team with each other to keep an eye on the front of the house while enjoying the fruits of your labor.
You get to see how it happens and make it happen – a behind-the-scenes experience at how shows, and festivals, are done.
