Thank you for your interest in becoming a volunteer with Nova Scotia Music Week. This event could not exist without the generous time donated by our volunteers. You are the backbone of our event!

By volunteering with Nova Scotia Music Week you will become part of a growing and internationally recognized event. The festival provides a great opportunity for you to meet new people and gain valuable skills and experience. It also provides great benefits in exchange for your time and efforts, including the chance to hear some of the best music Nova Scotia has to offer. It is our hope that you will get as much enjoyment and satisfaction from being a part of Nova Scotia Music Week as we do by having you on board.

A minimum of two volunteer shifts must be completed, except in cases where volunteers have only been scheduled for one shift by the Volunteer Coordinator. 


Any volunteers who fail to adhere to the Volunteer Handbook and Code Of Ethics, who fail to arrive for their shifts, or who display irresponsible behavior will not be allowed to return the following year and may have their pass confiscated.


With volunteering, you also gain a number of benefits. Here are a few:

  • A free t-shirt, identification badge, festival program, and volunteer handbook
  • Access to all showcasing venues throughout the week, subject to capacity.
  • Entry to the Closing Reception
