  • Volunteer after party on Saturday, Aug 17 with exclusive concerts by some of our festival performers.
  • Souvenir volunteer T-shirt (to wear during shifts)
  • “Volunteer Tarp” on the hill—When off shift, join other volunteers on the Volunteer Only tarp.
  • New friendships and a fantastic good time!

 

EXPECTATIONS OF VOLUNTEERS ARE:

Volunteers are expected to be available to work a shift on every day of the festival. Shifts on Friday-Sunday range from 3-5 hours each day of the fest, so you’ll have lots of time to enjoy music and other activities.

 

During the Festival weekend most volunteer roles are 12-15 hours over the three days (Friday-Sunday), plus 4 hours helping with setup or teardown. Thus, the minimum number of volunteer hours ranges from 16 – 19 hours (with some roles requiring less).

 

Children under 12 may attend the festival FREE of charge, but childcare arrangements must be made whilst parents are working volunteer shifts.

Shortly after applying you will get a confirmation email that we received your form. It may be a couple months until you find out what team/crew you’re placed on. It’s up to you and your assigned Crew Coordinator to determine which daily shifts you will work.
