Want free access to all the awesome shows, films, panels & art at Northside, plus discounts & free drinks? Volunteer with the festival, taking place June 14th-21st, for a free premium Northside badge worth $180. Jens Lekman, of Montreal, The Thermals, Beach Fossils, Ultramagnetic MC’s & The Olivia Tremor Control will be playing, with many more artists to be announced soon.
Is volunteering worth it? Absolutely! We worked a couple easy shifts last year, had a lot of fun, met a bunch of cool people, sat in on a couple really interesting panels, saw tons of shows, caught a couple films, explored small studios in Greenpoint, networked with awesome fellow volunteers, knocked back more free booze than we can remember & ended up having a better experience than if we’d just purchased a badge.
Here’s some more info from the Northside folks:
The Job: All you have to do is work two shifts over the course of the festival to receive a free badge. Since Northside is so big this year, we need help in all departments. Cinephiles can help out at Northside Film screenings. Music nerds can manage the doors at one of our venues (seriously, there’s a band here for everyone). And all you techies can help out at Northside Entrpeneurship where we have tons of panels and booths for NYC tech start-ups. Just make sure you attend one of our two orientation sessions (details to come!) before the festival starts.
The Perks: A free premium badge. That’s a $180-worth of music, films, and access to panels and talks at Northside Entrepeneurship. Plus it gets you tons of totally useful discounts from our amazing sponsors. And you get to hang out with us, which is reward enough. Ain’t we good to you?
Where do I sign?: To sign up for this year’s festival just head over to our volunteer page. We’ll be in touch closer to the festival to let you know about orientation dates, scheduling details, and all of that other good stuff.
