Volunteering is a way to make the BOTMC your own festival, and you'll get in free to one of the concerts at the Freight & Salvage.

Here's how it works:

  • If you volunteer for one of the ticketed events, you get into that event free.

  • If you volunteer at a free event, or volunteer for a job that takes place before or after the festival, you get free admission to either the Thurs. or Fri. night concert at the Freight.

  • If you do two volunteer jobs, you can get in free to both Freight concerts.

  • We are unable to offer free tickets to workshops since the fees go directly to the instructor. 

To volunteer, please send an email to , and please provide the following info:


1. Your name (and the names of anyone else that you are signing up)
2. Your email (and the emails of anyone else that you are signing up)
