Bunbury Music Festival: A Volunteer Experience

You didn't think I was finished with Bunbury, did you? Well, I'm almost there...until next year. Right now, I wanted to share some thoughts (and photos) from a Bunbury volunteer! My friend, Brittney, volunteered at Bunbury in 2013 and 2014. It's a great way to help out the festival for a bit and then see some live bands...for free! All the photos in this post are ones that Brittney took herself.

In 2013, Brittney had just gotten back from studying in England for a semester when she got an email asking for volunteers at Bunbury. She decided to sign up and had a blast, so it was easy to do it again in 2014!

The Black Cadillacs
Brittney has really enjoyed her time volunteering and thinks it's even better than just attending the festival. Volunteering allows her to meet fun people and see a bit of the behind-the-scenes moments. Brittney is currently in Canada for graduate school, so she knew she wanted to volunteer this past summer to give her something fun (and local) to do before she headed off.

Let's see if she's home long enough to do it in 2015!!

I've only volunteered for book festivals, but it really is fun. Especially if you don't have the money to attend really. And if you get a good spot where you get to actually meet people, that's really cool!
