Bowmanville - free Boots & Hearts country music festival for volunteers (w/camping)

first year of this festival. pretty strong lineup with Carrie Underwood, Kid Rock, Big & Rich, + more. tickets are normally $199.

As a volunteer you get access to the festival plus a preferred campsite spot. Festival is in Bowmanville, just East of Oshawa. August 10-13.

Who May Volunteer?
•You must be 18 years of age with a valid government photo ID.
•You must enjoy working alone or with a team, sometimes in high-stress situations.

There is a $25 dollar application fee which covers the processing, screening, t-shirts, badges, RFID wristbands and other costs. We are using new “state of the art” RFID wristbands that will allow us to control access into the grounds and to tell us where attendees are at any given time. As you complete your shift each day, your wristband will be activated for the next day. If a volunteer fails to meet their obligations, their wristband will be immediately deactivated and they will be required to purchase a full-price event ticket if they choose to remain on the festival grounds. We’re not trying to penalize people, we just want everybody to do their fair share.
What do I get for volunteering?

Each volunteer will receive:
•Free “Volunteer” t-shirt to wear while you are volunteering. You will receive your t-shirt when you check in.
•Free showers to keep the stink away (1 per day).
•Free super-sweet tent campsite. The volunteer camping area is closer to the main arena than most general admission campsites.
•Full event pass to see all the shows when you aren’t working.
•The prestige and glory that comes with helping Boots and Hearts be successful!

Hey Sprung,

Thanks for posting about this, but, not sure if it belongs here because it isn't "free" when you need to pay a $25 application fee to be a volunteer.

I don't like the fact that they charge an "application" fee to be a volunteer. I understand them having a deposit so people don't scam them and just go and watch the concerts, but, what is the point of the fee?

$25 to be a volunteer? No thanks.
