Expectations of Volunteers


Depending on your role, your volunteer shifts on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday will range from 3-6 hours each day.


Each volunteer is asked to help with 2 hours of setup or 2 hours of tearing down the festival (more if you can).

Out-of-town volunteers, please help out as much as you can with setup and teardown.



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. Our Volunteer Manager start mid-March, so 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.
