How you can help
Support the cause
The FUSE Fest requires a collection of able bodies to make the event run as smoothly as possible. We are looking for courteous, helpful, outgoing, friendly people to help make the FUSE Fest a success!
Preferably in teams of two, the Venue Manager is the FuSE Festival Liaison at each venue. They will be the point of contact for the bands performing at the venue, and for the staff at each venue. They will provide assistance to the best of their abilities to both the bands and venue staff. They will assist the door staff at their venue. They must be able to make decisions regarding minor issues and direct major issues to the FuSE Festival Leads. Not required but it helps, the Venue Manager should be able to make public announcements at their venue. Information such as the performance schedule, promoting the pedi-cabs and other venues, as well as additional general information is very beneficial to audience members.
Door Staff for each Venue
Door Staff will act as greeters for each venue, providing information such as who is playing, where things are (restroom, bar, other venues, etc), and in general represent a first point of contact at each venue. They will also serve as gatekeepers to ensure that audience members have a festival wristband, and direct people who don’t to where they can acquire one.
Stagehands help move band-gear in and out of the various venues and provide assistance to the bands to the best of their abilities. They should be able to lift 50lbs without hurting themself. Technical knowledge is not necessary, but certainly is a plus. Stagehands also are available to assist the Venue Manager and Door Staff.
