2017 marks the 17th anniversary of The Denver Post Underground Music Showcase, the biggest independent music festival in the Rocky Mountain region and the premier showcase for Denver’s incredible local music scene!

You can be a part of the most exciting, music-filled weekend of the year by becoming a UMS volunteer! Work one or two shifts (about 4-5 hours each) and enjoy the rest of the festival for FREE. Or, apply to be one of the specially selected full-time volunteers who are the true insiders of the festival and get exclusive access to other great events throughout the year.

Follow the application link to view the wide range of volunteer positions, provide some basic contact information, your availability, and tell us what areas of the festival you’d like to work.

There are several ways you can volunteer your time so discover what works perfectly for you! – Pre-festival Street Team promotions – spread the word with handbills and posters about the UMS at other live music events leading up to the festival – Sign up for 1 or more 4-5 hour shifts during the 4 days of the festival – Apply to be selected as a full-time volunteer and be a part of the action all four days of the festival with special perks only extended to our full time Vols!

If you’ve signed up for pre-festival or full-time positions, you’ll hear from us very soon. If you indicated a desire to do one or two shifts, we’ll get in touch with you with details about proposed assignments and a volunteer orientation meeting. In the meantime, keep an eye out for our volunteer socials. They are a great way to meet the team – the super cool team of folks who make the UMS so great.
