The Electric Carnival is a featured attraction at Lollapalooza '94's Mind Field. Lollapalooza is a concert tour founded in 1990 to showcase the best in alternative rock. For the past four years, the festival has presented numerous prominent alternative bands, a second stage of local bands, and a front-of-the-house area with additional attractions. Sponsored by Interval Research Corporation, Electric Carnival will present Lollapalooza concert-goers with over 60 kiosks showing 18 different kinds of multimedia exhibits. For the final three weeks, the carnival will have a satellite Internet connection. Join the Carnival -- Volunteer! Sound cool? Then why not come be a member of the Electric Carnival crew for a day? We're looking for volunteer facilitators to help us out at each Lollapalooza site. Want to experience all the new technology first hand? Do you have an understanding of what interactive multimedia really is? Interested in sharing your knowledge, as well as expanding on your expertise, with Lollapalooza concert-goers who may have little or no understanding of the Internet?
