If you live in the Gainesville area and want to help out and be a part of THE FEST 11, here’s your chance! THE FEST 11 is looking for kick ass, friendly and serious volunteers. Volunteers are always needed over the weekend of The Fest, and we offer a free pass to anyone who works a shift the weekend-of. You will also get a FEST 11 shirt that no one else can buy. A shift runs about 8-10 hours and is anything from working registration, checking wristbands at the door, helping bands load equipment, to being a rock star stage manager.
LAST CHANCE TO SIGN UP TO VOLUNTEER FOR FEST 11
Oct 9th @ 7:00pm. *meeting will last an hour to two hours.
Volunteer meetings will be held at:
Holiday Inn - University Center
1250 W. University Ave.
Gainesville, Florida 32601
If you have questions please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Also follow us on Twitter and Facebook for reminders as well.
*You only need to come to ONE of the sign up meetings. At the meetings, we will go over job descriptions and then allow you to sign up for a shift to work FEST 11 weekend. For every shift you work, you will receive a free FEST 11 pass for the entire weekend and a limited edition FEST 11 shirt that is only for volunteers. If you work as a stage manager for a show, you will receive two FEST 11 passes for your shift.
There is also a MANDATORY work meeting for ALL VOLUNTEERS that have signed up. This meeting will be held on Wednesday Oct 24th at 8:00pm at the Holiday Inn. At this meeting, we will break into groups so you can meet who you will be working with at FEST 11, go over details and job duties once again, and get the room set up and decorated for registration.
We are asking that everyone who shows up to volunteer sign up meetings bring a valid photo ID and current phone/cell phone bill with current address on it. Why do we have this rule? Well, in past years we had several people who did not show up for their shifts and we had no phone number for them. When people flake on their shifts lots of things go wrong. You are also a major asshole, and karma is a bitch!
Also, if you are under the age of 18 you must come with a parent or legal guardian to the sign up meeting. This way we know your folks are OK with you volunteering.
EVERYONE who volunteers this year will sign a waiver exempting The Fest from all physical liability while you are working on THE FEST 11.
