High Water Festival Launches Earned Ticket Program

High Water Festival has announced its Earned Ticket Program. The program provides opportunities for those interested in attending High Water to complete a set number of community service hours--specifically for one of the Festival’s charitable partners--to earn a ticket to the event. A limited number of volunteer openings are available through Charleston-based Charleston Waterkeeper, Green Heart Project and Water Mission.

Folk duo Shovels & Rope says, “We are completely humbled by the excitement for High Water, and we can’t wait to share what we’ve been cookin’ up with everyone. It was always part of our vision for the festival to give back in a meaningful way, and this ticket program allows us to get a few more tickets out to our Charleston folks, as well as encourage people to get active with our nonprofits.”

The sold-out inaugural High Water Festival, curated by Shovels & Rope, comes to Riverfront Park in North Charleston Saturday - Sunday, April 22 - 23. High Water Festival integrates music, food and art, while also impacting the Charleston community. Artists performing at the two-day event include the Avett Brothers, the Shins, Shovels & Rope, Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats, and more. The full lineup of performers is available on the Festival website.

“Creating a positive, lasting impact on the community is part of the ethos of every event we create. Additionally we are always looking for creative ways to support the organizations that are helping to improve the community. With this program, we are accomplishing our goals and rewarding our fans--what could be better?” says Jeff Cuellar, Vice President of Strategic Partnerships at AC Entertainment.

The Earned Ticket Program is now live on the High Water Festival website. Interested parties may sign up for volunteer opportunities with one of the Festival’s three charitable partners. Each person is eligible for only one ticket (regardless of volunteer hours), and may only volunteer with one nonprofit. Tickets will be distributed upon completion of hours or at the discretion of each organization.
