The only thing better than Fest is when you can get a little taste of Florida’s best underground punk festival right in your own city. With Pre-Fest 3 and Fest 14 now just a bit more than a month away, festival organizers are starting to host the volunteer sign ups for both events. For Pre-Fest, the only sign up opportunity will be on Monday night at The Oprheum.
According to festival organizers, all you’ll need to bring is a waiver, a photo I.D. and $5 ($7 for XXL+) for a volunteer t-shirt with you pretty name on the tag. In exchange, volunteers get to go to all the Pre-Fest shows for free any time outside of their shift. The coolest part is that if you decide to sign up for two shifts, you can score free tickets to Fest in Gainesville. Unfortunately, not everyone will be able to do so, but the Fest organizers have said everyone will get a chance to sign up for a first shift before they open up to people signing up for a second.
Pre-Fest organizers have request that you bring your “positive-can-do-anything-take-on-the-world attitude” and to help you get there, check out The Menzinger full Pre-Fest set from last year below.
