With the cost of hotels, food, alcohol, and tickets, we can all agree that festivals are expensive. We’re always searching for new ways to save money on festival travel, whether it’s maximizing rewards or staying with a bunch of friends. Traveling smart allows you to attend more festivals, so it’s obviously a no brainer.
Volunteering at country festivals is a great way to attend a country festival without having to pay for admission. Most festivals require you to work a certain number of hours in exchange for a free festival ticket that you can use when your shift has ended. Not to mention, giving your time to something you believe in always feels back. You might even get to make some new friends and meet some of your favorite country stars. 2018 Country Music Festivals
