Calling South Canterbury people that want to volunteer and see some of the biggest names in New Zealand music.
The Volunteer Army Foundation is planning The Concert event that will be held at AMI Stadium in Christchurch on November 3. Organisers promise it will be the biggest music event "Christchurch has ever seen".
The ticket price? Four hours of volunteer work for any number of projects, including digging a new garden bed at the Waimate Community Garden, restoring the Sumner dunes, doing jobs at the SPCA and helping out at the Christchurch Women's Refuge street appeal.
People can also suggest projects.
There are 10,000 tickets available for The Concert. The event is R15 with R18 areas.
The lineup will be announced this month.
People can register their volunteer project on the website theconcert.co.nz, or on the event's Facebook page.
Volunteering Mid and South Canterbury co-ordinator Lyndal Watt said it was a Canterbury-wide initiative and projects were available here.
"If local people have got local projects then youth can still get tickets. I'm quite happy to take people's names and find them a project to do.
"Organisations can put their own project on [the website] and volunteers can register on the website."
The Concert is being co-ordinated by Student Volunteer Army head Sam Johnson, who said a team of five was working on the project fulltime.
"As well as that core group, there is also the student volunteer committee and a team of 50 ambassadors that are taking the volunteering message into schools.
"They are an amazing group. It takes a lot of effort to put on a concert and we're all working together to make it happen."
He said The Concert is about people making a difference in their community, then celebrating at the event.
