Why Volunteer?​

Gate Crew

Selling tickets at the gate, giving people wrist bands, directing people to campsites,

and giving people general information of the festival. this is one of the more important roles of volunteering. This duty will be divided into four two hour shifts over the weekend.

Beer Gardens

Checking ID's, giving out wrist bands, selling beer tickets, pouring pints. Certainly you will become one of the more recognized faces that people love at the festival! Of course though, this position does come with a certain degree of responsibility. You must be at least 18 years of age to be able to volunteer in the beer gardens. This duty will be divided into four two hour shifts.


Burgers, and Hot Dogs, and Fries? Oh My! Also merch, and treats! Do you like to cook at all? Can you make a pot of coffee? The kitchen/consession is a position of making food and selling some merch for the festival. Let's face it... the look on a child's face as you hand them a freezee that's longer than their body is worth all the volunteer time spent in the kitchen! This position will be broken into 1-2hr shifts over the weekend.

Grounds and Facility care

The grounds are beautiful, and we would like to keep it that way during the festival. This position involves emptying garbages, cleaning the kitchen and beer gardens, and also taking care of the bathrooms when needed. Sounds like a lot of work, but in reality this is actually probably one of the less demanding volunteer positions. It's still quite important though! This position will be split up into specific times for cleaning facilities, and a need to basis for grounds clean up.


Due to the nature of how our festival is set up, day and night security are required to keep an eye on the front gate and stage during the festival and after hours. This is probably one of the more physically demanding positions, however the bonus is that the volunteer times are split into larger blocks giving you more freedom to participate. In addition you get a free security shirt. How neat!
