What You'll Need to Apply


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.

  Member Application (16 hours)
Once you click, you will log in to your FAI member account to access the member-only application.

  Non-Member Application (22 hours)
Non-member applications are currently WAITLISTED. You may still fill out the application and see if there are last-minute openings or become a member to volunteer.

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.
