As a volunteer, you will have access to the same things as the spectators - the music, the food, the fun and the party. You will play an essential role in the success of this entire event! This year, volunteer shifts for 80/35 are available from Wednesday through Sunday in a variety of areas. A majority of volunteer shifts last between 4 and 5 hours, some are shorter. A number of shifts are available before and after 80/35 for set up and tear down. Volunteer needs include checking wristbands, selling drink tickets, admissions, helping with recycling efforts on-site, gate control and much more.
