Middle Waves Music Festival

Middle Waves Music Festival 2022

Thank you for your interest in volunteering for Middle Waves! Middle Waves volunteers are vital to the festival. They're the first smile, high-five, head nod or compliment you may come across on festival grounds. And they do anything from slinging merch to swapping wristbans for tickets to setting up fences. We cannot do this without you! It will take over 200 volunteers to ensure an amazing weekend in Fort Wayne. There are a few ground rules for being a Most Valuable Volunteer (MVV):

  1. Be an awesome steward of the Middle Waves vibe.
  2. You must show up for your shift. If you are a no show/no call, you will not be able to volunteer in the coming years. Also, if you don't show up and you redeem your discounted ticket, we will charge you the full weekend pass amount for the ticket you purchased - GA or VVIP.
  3. Be at least 18 years old.
  4. MVVs must rock their special MVV shirt during their shift. Then you must go back to your regular duds as soon as your shift is over. 
  5. Check out this MVV Guide for some basic safety and general MVV info.
  6. Agree to our MVV Waiver! Your signup, is your consent.
  7. Attend a MVV Training Session. Two options are available.You only need to attend one of the sessions. MVV Training will be held Tuesday, May 31st from 5:30 - 6:30 PM AND Thursday, June 9th from 7 - 8 PM at the downtown branch of the Allen County Library - Meeting Rooms A, B & C. You can pick up your shirt at this time. 
  8. Have an incredible time!

If you would like to get a ticket at a discounted rate:

  1. Sign up for one or more shifts on SignUp Genius.
  2. Wait for an email to come with your unique ticket link and get the discounted rate dependent on your volunteer shift(s). We will send you your ticket access info within a week of your signup. 
  3. Purchase your discounted ticket.
  4. Count down the days until the festival weekend!
  5. Tell your friends to sign up too!
