Media Info

Due to several concerns regarding coverage of the Boston Freedom Rally, including working side by side with major media outlets such as WAAF, we have to run a tight ship in regards to media access to the Rally this year.

Only the Masscann media team will have STAGE ACCESS – outside media and press will be restricted to “press pits” among the crowd.

We are looking for photographers, videographers, news & publications, social media gurus, post production and more!  If you are interested in volunteering for the MassCann Media Team, please use the form below.

Volunteer perks:

  • Stage access & Front row experience to the 2nd largest cannabis event in the country
  • Endless business networking opportunities & exposure (work will be featured on website, social media and publications)
  • Masscann Volunteer T-shirt
  • Access to Speak-Easy VIP After Party Saturday night (Access = Your name on the list. The cost to attend the all inclusive party is $30 for everyone, even VIP guests & Rally speakers).

Requirements:

  • Each volunteer works 2 hour blocks at a minimum of 2 of the 4 stages.
  • All volunteers are required to capture 4:20 footage!
  •  Each volunteer will have the opportunity to choose which blocks they work, i.e. those that wish to cover a specific band/speaker/vendor etc.
  • If you are not assigned at a stage, please capture as much as possible of the goings on around you, per the points of interest listed below.
  • All contributions and donations whether equipment, post production, social media and technical abilities welcome and will be rewarded.

Posting/Uploading Footage:

  • Each contributor must let us know whether they will be dumping raw footage on rally day, and/or taking care of their own post production.
  • Each contributor is welcome to share their work on their own outlets, websites, and media publications as desired. Masscann/Norml must be represented and mentioned/tagged. (See above for social media information).
