Join the team!
There are many, many, jobs that need to be done during a festival, and volunteers help us every year with many of them! From selling tickets, snacks and merchandise, to greeting musicians, to checking the grounds and facilities, to directing cars and campers to where they need to go.
The positions are listed below and signing up online is easy! We’ll be making online signup possible as we draw closer to the festival, but in the meantime, take a look at what you might like to do and let us know if you have any questions.
Volunteers get in to the festival for the day of their shift absolutely free!
