Bunbury Music Festival Accepting Volunteer Applications
Cincinnati (January 24, 2013) – Bunbury Music Festival returns to Cincinnati’s Sawyer Point and Yeatman’s Cove on July 12-14, 2013, and is now recruiting the best volunteers Greater Cincinnati has to offer. The three-day event transforms the banks of the Ohio River into a unique music and festival experience where participating volunteers can work in a number of different areas.
“We’re looking for volunteers for each day, and for many jobs,” said Bill Donabedian, festival organizer. “From helping greet attendees to selling items, we’re looking for volunteers who can do a little bit of everything.”
There is no application fee, multiple shifts are available (morning, afternoon, evening) and opportunities include beverage sales, box office/gates, bullpen, clean team, greeters, information/lost and found, volunteer headquarters and team leaders. Regardless of when and where volunteers work, their role is critical to the success of the festival. Not all applicants are guaranteed selection.
There is no monetary compensation for a four-hour volunteer shift; however, volunteers will receive, at minimum, free admission into the festival (on days worked) and a free t-shirt. Candidates must be 18 years of age or older and a resident of Greater Cincinnati. Selected volunteers will need to arrive 30 minutes prior to their shift for orientation and will need to sign a waiver.
