Seattle Bicycle Music Festival shaping up, needs volunteers

Plans for the Seattle Bicycle Music Festival are shaping up. The basic route has been established and bands are lined up. Haulin’ Colin is hooking them up with a trailer for the event, and the bicycle generator plans are moving forward.

The festival will start at Bergen Place Park (that weird triangle thingy at Leary and Market), then move to Denny Park, then finish at Cal Anderson. Here’s the lineup so far:

We’ll be starting at Bergen Place, in Ballard (at the intersection of Leary Ave, 22nd Ave NW, and NW Market St)

Wanna help out? Here’s their most recent volunteer call-out:

We’re still looking for a few great volunteers! If you have any interest in helping build the system, or decorate signs, or post fliers around town, or gather materials, come participate in our weekly parties meetings! We (usually) get a lot done, and I try to provide some bribes in the form of tasty treats, cold beverages, etc.

The engineering meetings happen every Monday, 6-8pm (you’re welcome to stay later though). They will usually take place on Capitol Hill, unless we need to go to a location with more tools and welding capabilities. In that case, we’ll send out updates and let you know where the meeting will be held.

Depending on the number of volunteers we have and the amount of work that needs to get done, we might have an additional meeting night to make signs, deliver fliers to local bike shops, pick up supplies, and take care of organizational tasks. But don’t let that scare you off, we’ll make sure you enjoy yourself and get well fed & beveraged.
