What You'll Need to Apply


We will start the volunteer approval process in October 2016.

If, on the off chance, you are not accepted into the volunteer program, you will be able to purchase your conference registration based on the rate at the date of your application. (i.e. if you are not accepted but applied in August you could purchase a registration at the early bird rate. If you applied in October, you would be charged the fall rate.)

Folk Alliance accepts only a limited number of volunteers. Filling out an application does not guarantee acceptance. If you are accepted as a volunteer you will receive an email with instructions on how to register for a conference pass at no charge.

Please add volunteer@folk.org to your address book so that you won't miss any emails concerning your volunteer shifts.

Mission Statement

The mission of Folk Alliance International is to nurture, engage, and empower the international folk music community - traditional and contemporary, amateur and professional - through education, advocacy and performance.
