The Body & Soul festival is looking for "volunteers" to help out during the event:

Volunteering is a great way to get involved in one of Ireland’s most exciting, progressive and impactful festivals in exchange for a ticket.

Our volunteers work a range of roles and gain experience in how events and festivals operate from the inside out. For students looking to work in the creative industries, music, visual arts or event production, it’s an invaluable opportunity to make industry contacts and learn from experts. For everyone else, it’s also great craic, with sound people at a beautiful festival! Volunteers work shifts, so they can still experience the festival, and many volunteers are finished their shifts by the time the gates open.

Happy to be corrected, but I don't believe that this is a not-for-profit festival.. it's certainly an expensive one.

Tiers 1, 2, 3 and 4 are now sold out. Tier 5, priced at €169.50, are currently available.
P.ie, I ask you... What is this volunteering offer but a Jobsbridge-like scam, except one perpetrated by fake-ass progressives?

How progressive is it for the organizers to not pay the minimum wage?

Are the organizers of this event any different to any other bosses anywhere that exploit their workers?

Bunch of pseudo-progressive chancers, if you ask me... they'd fit in well at any large corporation where profits come before everything else.
