Call for volunteers!

Boombox is free for you to attend and enjoy, in order to make that happen we have some lovely sponsors but we also run the entire festival with volunteers.  We need people to help move gear on and off stage, we need people to help set up and tear down each night, as well as run the merchandise tables for the artists.  If you or anyone you know would like to be a volunteer, please send us an e-mail bigassboomboxseattle@gmail.com.  We could use your help!

Thank you in advance!

This could be you!
