Middle Waves Music Festival

Middle Waves Music Festival 2020

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 selling tickets or setting up fences. We cannot do this without you! It will take around 250 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. (Yes - they are they same awesome material as last year's MVV shirts!)
  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 Wednesday, May 27th at 5:30 PM AND Thursday, June 4th from 7 - 8 PM at the old General Electric gym on the West side of the Electric Works campus (1030 Swinney Ave, Fort Wayne, IN 46802 — Building 23). You can pick up your shirt at this time. 
  8. Have an incredible time!
