Volunteering at the Vancouver Island Musicfest had its perks – free access into the festival to watch all the acts – as long as you weren’t volunteering at the time – but you could at least hear the music if you weren’t to absorbed/busy in your volunteering job. Another perk was free camping on site and if your volunteer position offered it, you had backstage access that fed your gastronomic cravings with free snacks and hot/cold beverages as well as a view of the performers that you were told with strict adherence to stay away from.
Then there is this notorious inevitable – Festival Feet.
This is such a ‘thing’ that a local musician, Carl L. Ford who volunteers at the festival wrote a song about it, because you can’t help but notice how dirty your feet get there!
