VOLUNTEER ROLES EXPLAINED

COMMISSARY - Basic food prep, and serving food and beverages to staff and performers. You may also be called upon to run food/drinks from commissary to the stages. Shifts start early in the morning before the event starts, and run all the way past the event's end time. -------------------------------------------------- WILL CALL - Checking in performers, staff, volunteers and anybody else that is on the will call list. You should be comfortable working with multiple lists, and be able to follow instructions on marking names off in a standardized way. Shifts will start a few hours before noon and go until near the end of the event. This is a sit down position. -------------------------------------------------- LINE CONTROL - Hanging out with people at the front of the line, making sure the line is moving, people are ready to pay, etc. -------------------------------------------------- GREETERS - Welcoming people as they enter the event. High energy preferred. Greeters will be staffed during event hours. -------------------------------------------------- SET-UP/TEAR DOWN - No special skills are required, but you must be able to lift at least 50 pounds over your head, climb ladders, and hustle. Much of the work will be setting up car-ports and barricades, placing tables and chairs, and other similar tasks. WE HIGHLY PREFER TO HAVE THE SAME PEOPLE ON BOTH SET-UP AND TEAR DOWN. Set-up will go from 6am until just before the gate opens. Tear down will start as the event is wrapping up at the end of the night and go until we're done. -------------------------------------------------- DECOR - This role is similar to Set-up/Teardown in time commitment, and ability to lift and climb, but it has more to do with making the event look pretty. If you like to make stuff look nice, this role is for you. -------------------------------------------------- BACK-STAGE ASSISTANT - Helping keep things calm cool and collected behind the stages. Duties include helping the stage manager with anything and everything they need to do their job, including moving instruments and sound equipment, retrieving refreshments, and other supplies, and just simply helping out behind the scenes. You should be able to lift up to 25 lbs. -------------------------------------------------- DAY AFTER CLEAN UP - Come back to the event site, and help us clean up. This is a great way to give something back and make some new friends.
