Volunteer Orientation (highly recommended)
Thursday, Jan. 31 at 5:30 p.m.

LDDA office - 528 Main St.
Receive details about exact assignment, location, shift time, important info and pick up a lanyard with credentials, t-shirt, map, schedule, etc. If you cannot attend, we will e-mail you the assignment and information, and you can pick up your volunteer credentials/materials on the day of the event. 

Volunteer Duties
Will vary based on your shift time, role, and which venue you’re at. Common duties may include:

  • Assisting musicians with carrying equipment in and out of the venue
  • Work with sound tech (if applicable) to keep show on-time and running smoothly
  • Counting attendance (clicker provided)
  • Checking tickets (at closed venues)
  • Calling event coordinators with any issues or questions
  • Briefly emcee, thank sponsors, introduce musicians on stage (if desired)
  • Supervise musician lanyard/credential pickup (greenroom)
  • Check credentials for greenroom and after-party access
  • Relieve other volunteers for breaks, ‘float’ to other venues if needed
  • You should have a chair or place to sit at pretty much every venue, so you won’t be required to stand the entire time. There may be some lifting of potentially heavy/awkward items, but we may have roles that will not require lifting.

PERKS for Volunteering with Us!

  • Showcase Team t-shirt
  • Volunteer Credential lanyard
  • Food & Drink Deal punch card (can be redeemed for food and drink at select Showcase venues). We cannot allow volunteers to consume alcohol DURING their shift.
  • Other food/drink available – water/snacks in greenroom, food & drink at after-party
  • Venue & Performance Access (outside of your volunteer shift) – access to see all performances
  • Greenroom & After-party access – both located at The Experience Building/La Vita Bella. 

Plenty of street and public parking lot parking is available in the area. There are no time limits on the weekends, so you can park in any public parking space all day. 

Thank you again for your interest and if you want to sign up, please e-mail ldda@longmontcolorado.gov or call 303-651-8484.
