Want free passes to Fest and Pre-Fest? Sign up to volunteer



Gainesville’s punk concert Fest has always relied on volunteers, and its preceding two-day festival in Tampa will be no different — with an enticing reward for those who help out.

Big Pre-Fest in Little Ybor, which takes place from Oct. 29-30, will be holding two volunteer sign ups on Oct. 1. One will be at St. Petersburg’s The Local 662 at 7 p.m. and the other at The Orpheum at 9:30 p.m.

For one approximately eight-hour shift at Pre-Fest, volunteers get a free pass to the festival and a limited edition shirt. Those who volunteer for two shifts will get passes to both Pre-Fest and Fest.

The lineup for Big Pre-Fest in Ybor includes headliners such as Teenage Bottlerocket and The Bouncing Souls. Fest, which runs Oct. 31-Nov. 3, features every band playing in Tampa as well as acts like Minneapolis punks Dillinger Four, Descendents descendants ALL and ‘90s emo group Braid, above.
