Courtenay, Vancouver Island – Volunteering at Vancouver Island Musicfest – Day 1

Well, here we are.  I’ll let you read more about Vancouver Island Musicfest by clicking on the link on its name.  My focus is behind the scenes of what it is like to be part of the crew of this musical unity and the actual festival itself!

Michael is an Electrical Volunteer.  He makes sure everyone has power.

I’m Performer Services.  I’m backstage – the main backstage – to make sure the musicians are taken care.  Not as glamorous as it sounds…..part of what I do is cut a lot of vegetables for the performers to snack on!

We arrived on Tuesday evening – two days before the festival starts – with our rented travel trailer, placed in volunteer camping. Our spot is the trailer behind the trailer behind the silver truck.

Our rented home for a week!!

And now we have a home!

 

Now for the parts of the festival as they start to develop!

This is walking from our trailer, from the volunteer camping site (take note of the space – because this will quickly change!) towards the exit of this location.

This empty for now spot is where I’ll be for my volunteering shifts – the Concert Bowl Stage.  The main stage is brought in and unfolded.  This is preparation for it!

These fifth wheels and campers (next to the main stage) will be where the main attraction performers will stay while on location.

The Barn Stage!  It’s a real barn – for a Therapeutic Riding School!  The horses, I guess get a vacation as they are relocated for the festival!!
