Volunteering is the number one experience of being a part of our legendary festival. Not only do you become an integral part of the event and get to connect with your community in a meaningful way, but the friendships and experience you gain will enrich your time at the festival as you become a part of the team that makes it all happen!
We ask our volunteers to complete a minimum of 2 x 5-hour shifts in exchange for a festival ticket. Should volunteers wish to come early and attend the Thursday pre-party, 3 x 5-hour shifts are required.
