A number of thoughtful folks have been contacting us with offers to volunteer for this year’s event. If you have the time and inclination to help out before, during, or after the festival, please contact our new volunteer coordinator Jeanne Kallal at email@example.com
Volunteers receive a swanky t-shirt, food & drinks at the volunteer party (Sunday, June 29th — more details to come), and early bird access to camping spots. In past years we’ve been particularly short of help for site prep and post-festival clean-up (it takes a few days to get Brian’s yard back in order and to return donated goods.)
We guarantee there will be no snow.
Advance tickets and camping passes are now available online via PayPal. Just select the Tickets option and follow the trail of crumbs. Hard copies of tickets have yet to be delivered to Earth’s General Store (Edmonton) and Ravenhill Agencies (Tofield), but we’ll spread the word once everything’s in place.
One of the performers for this year’s festival just got some cool news… Check it out here: http://goo.gl/qYggWh.
Olympic Games are on the radar, so naturally your thoughts turn to… agriculture and live music. Yes, it’s an “on” year for Wild Oats & Notes — this year’s festival will be running June 27 – 28.
Two days only, you say? Friday evening and all-day Saturday? Si. Without a holiday Monday, we’ve found it’s tough to hang on to the bulk of our crowd, and the exodus of trailers, RV’s, and assorted camping vehicles is not only disconcerting/discouraging to onstage performers, it’s actually dangerous to the remaining music fans, as all campers must exit through the main stage area.
So it’s an abbreviated schedule compared to recent years, but the concentration of talent will raise a lot of eyebrows — some amazing new acts and a few back-by-popular-demand returnees. We’ll be announcing performer and schedule info shortly on our website, so mark the dates on your calendar and stay tuned.
The 2012 festival was such a success and so much fun we’re going to do it again… in 2014.
We’ve always been an every-two-year event (discuss among yourselves whether that makes us biannual or biennial), if only to try and starve out the mosquitoes.
Check back in early 2014 for updates.
