VOLUNTEER while you get SHUTTLED! A multi-tasker’s dream!

This is what you’d be doing:

-Arrive 15 minutes BEFORE bus is set to leave.
-Check off those who have signed up– there should be spaces for everyone on the list.
-Make sure our solo travellers feel welcomed.
-Foster a fun environment for all!
-Encourage and foster LNT principle.
-Bring the 10 principles to the bus ride!!
-Make sure the bus driver is considered and happy so everyone gets where they are going safe!
-Those volunteering for the ride home should be riding the shuttle home also.

I need two volunteers, 9:15 pm-11:30 pm leaving from the venue.

I need two volunteers who are leaving early to start at 11:45 and take the midnight shuttle to King George Station for the last skytrain, leaving from venue.

DJ bios:

Steve Maly:
Born and raised in the Montreal scene, Steve Maly uses hip hop roots to throw down the perfect blend of gangster house and techno.

DJ Tango has been playing for audiences in Vancouver and area, at Burning Man, and in Australia, since 2001. Parties, clubs, festivals, fundraisers…his experience is diverse. Electro house, tech house, breaks, glitch hop, tribal…his styles are varied.

A 16 year veteran of the Canadian west-coast intentional dance scene, Khan’s lush progressive sets are filled with tribal rhythms, beautiful melodies and mystical landscapes.

Performing since 1993, diem’s signature sound is “hardtribaldisco”, a blend of tribal Latin rhythms, hard funk, house beats, breaks, and layered evil disco. He’s coming all the way from Seattle!
