Summer of Give
Seeing as it's in a good cause, I agreed to give a shout out for this one. V, the youth volunteering charity, are giving away free summer festival tickets as part of their 'Summer of Give' campaign.
Essentially, V are looking for 18-25 year olds to volunteer both their time and talents in return for free tickets for 3 festivals this summer: T4 on the Beach at the Isle of Wight, Relentless Boardmasters in Newquay and Creamfields.
The idea is for volunteers to show off their talents to other festival goers, skills which I'm reliably informed can include music, dance, photography, writing or even fashion styling. All talents will be required to pass a judging panel and just have to perform to the festival's crowds for 4 hours a day on the 'BigvBus'. Given the public's passion for talent show and opportunities to perform, I'm sure it'll go down a storm.
I know there are a bunch of music lovers in the blawgosphere (and a number of philanthropists, too) so if this sounds like something you'd be up for, why not give it a whirl? Applications can be made via their website at http://vinspired.com/summerofgive
The offer ends on 28th June so anyone who's keen should get their skates on.
