Do I get into the show for free?

In almost all cases, yes. Generally you’ll receive access to the general admission or standing area at the show, or a “working pass” that allows you access to the venue. Note that you will usually miss all of the opening acts while registering voters, and may miss some of the headliner’s set in some circumstances. For this reason, we discourage anyone from volunteering when their absolute favorite band is playing. There are also rare instances where, because of venue rules, we are not able to see the show at all (this is extremely rare and we try to avoid it, but it can happen). But yes, seeing live music (for free) is a huge part of the HeadCount volunteer experience.
