Yes, it's now official. We knew this when we booked them, and that's obviously why we were so keen to include them in our 2018 lineup, and we have just been authorized to make the announcement. This will be the last year that The Elders will be touring as a band. Incredible to believe, but these guys have been playing together for 20 years, and have been one of the favorites at NTIF for almost all of that time.
So, if you want to come and say goodbye to Ian, Steve, Brent and the rest of the guys, save your seat at the Shannon Stage at NTIF. They will be playing all three days and i'm sure their finale will be a show not to be missed.
As always we are looking for new and returning volunteers. We offer the usual exchange; free festival entry, parking, t-shirt for two or more shifts for lots of hard work and the most fun event in Dallas!
A couple of areas need more help than ever. Our hospitality area, where we serve three full meals a day to musicians, staff and VIPs needs experienced or trainee restaurant staff. If you have any experience in the restaurant industry and want to help out, we could certainly put you to work.
As always, we really need help on both Sunday evening or Monday morning clearing up and moving back to our warehouse. We offer special incentives to these volunteers including Monday lunch, give-away tickets to other local events, T-shirt and many other goodies that we have left over. Plus you get to spend the entire weekend at the festival enjoying yourselves and not having to work.
Can't make up your mind and want to talk to other volunteers, then come along to the Volunteer Meeting on Sunday, January 28th at the Doubletree Hotel around 1:00pm and meet over 400 volunteers who can answer pretty much any question you have.
Welcome to NTIF 2018.
All musician applications are now closed, and we are well into the selection process. It's so hard with all those very excellent musicians to chose from.
Our process will be complete at the end of November when our performer pages will be updated.
Now accepting applications from volunteers. Sign up online and beat the rush - the best shifts go fast.
The Doubletree at Campbell Center, our host hotel, is now taking reservations. You may either call the hotel direct at (214) 691-8700 and give the block code NTI, or make a reservation here online.
