Thanks for being a TEI volunteer! We've put together this page for you to help you get started and learn all about our workshops so that you have a great TEI experience!
Please arrive to the Vans Warped Tour on your specific date by 10am. Be prepared to volunteer with us from 10am to 3pm, with load-out assistance around 6pm.
Meet Allison Lanza by the front gates at the TEI tent that's out by the front of the gates at 10 am.
WHAT'S A TEI WORKSHOP:
A TEI workshop gives you the opportunity to spend 40 minutes backstage in a small group conversation with some of your favorite artists playing on the Vans Warped Tour! Workshops range from instrument lessons to in depth conversations about touring, life hardships, creating music, and much more.
WHAT TO TELL SOMEONE THAT BOUGHT A TICKET IN ADVANCE:
Tell people the location of our tent that day. Example: next to the Journeys left foot stage, by the Parent tent, etc.
Tell them that workshop schedules are posted every morning after the show schedule is released. They can find the workshop schedule at the blue TEI tent on site or at thinktei.com/warpedschedule.
GREAT, DID YOU SELL A TICKET ON SITE? NOW WHAT?
Tell the person where our tent is located and what time their workshop starts so they can check in on time.
