Volunteer and get free entry to the Pitchfork Music Fest, while helping MFA get at least $500

Chicago, IL
Post #: 321
Ok, here is how it works… each year Pitchfork offers us the opportunity to be part of the Pitchfork Music Festival experience, July 17, 18 and 19th in Chicago’s Union Park. Last year’s festival sold out weeks in advance with more than 50,000 people attending, and it should be the same this year. Pitchfork loves working with non-profit organizations to help staff the festival. In exchange for providing volunteers for the 2009 festival, MFA gets a free booth space. Volunteers will be asked to help take tickets, check for wristbands at beer tents, control access to back stage areas and other similar tasks. Volunteer shifts on Friday (July 17) are from 4 PM-10 PM and on Saturday (July 18) and Sunday (July 19) are from 11 AM-5 PM and 4 PM-10 PM. Volunteers for the AM shifts are welcome to enjoy the festival after completing their shift while volunteers for PM shifts are welcome to return to the festival the next day for free. Here are how the numbers break down:

35 shifts = $1,500 plus a free 10 X 10 booth
25 shifts = $1,000 plus a free 10 X 10 booth
15 shifts = $500 and 10 X 10 booth
10 shifts = 10 X 10 booth
