Duluth's Homegrown Music Festival is a full week of live music and other related events spread out over several Northland venues.

The 2022 Duluth Homegrown Music Festival is scheduled to take place from Sunday, May 1 through Sunday, May 8 and with an event this sprawling, it takes a lot of people to make it all come together and organizers need more volunteers to help out in a variety of roles.

The call for volunteers was sent out through social media and their website as they would like to fill a variety of positions and there are training sessions scheduled in April.

Those interested to volunteer could sign up for 3 different positions. Here they are, along with a sample of the responsibilities they each entail. You can see the complete list of responsibilities through their website.
