$1 Tickets to Treasure Island Music Festival This Weekend, Just for Helping Out

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

Not the most glamorous work, but you get to see LCD Soundsystem for just a buck.

If you’re trying to get in to the Treasure Island Festival this weekend and are willing to do some volunteer work in exchange for $1 addmission, then you’re in luck: Some friends of ours at Clean Vibes and dropped us a line to let us know that there are still spots available for Saturday and Sunday volunteer spots as Trash Talkers, who are those helpful people that let you know which rubbish bin you should place your soiled, but biodegradable recycled paper plates in. (Seriously though: is that compost? recycling? just trash?)

All you have to do is sign up for a $1 service fee. They’ll need to run your credit card for price of one-day ticket, but assuming you actually show up and do your job, they won’t actually charge you for anything other than that one buck. Clean Vibes is looking to fill in some afternoon and evening slots, but most of them have good views of the stages, so you won’t be missing much by saving the planet through proper recycling and such. If you’re interested, check out the sign up pages, there’s one for each day of the festival, so make sure you’ve arrived at the right link for the day you want to work:
