My friends are also volunteering. Can you coordinate my shift with theirs?
When you and your friend fill out your applications, be sure to indicate their name or the group that you are a part of. Keep in mind that with so many volunteers and many varied needs, we cannot guarantee that you will share assignments with your friends, but we will certainly try!
When do I show up for my shift?
Please arrive 30 minutes before your assigned volunteer shift begins and be ready to work. You will receive a volunteer t-shirt prior to your first shift. You will be expected to wear it while you are working, and you will be expected to take it off while you are not working.

There are no guarantees of volunteer crew placements. If you have special skills that would make you a better fit for a certain crew, please note that on the application. We appreciate your flexibility and willingness to lend a helping hand!
Is transportation or accommodation provided?
No. All volunteers are responsible for their own transportation to and from the festival. There is no lodging or accommodation provided for volunteers.
I already bought a ticket, but I would still like to help out for a few hours. Can I do that?
We appreciate the offer but unfortunately, for the sake of continuity, we need volunteers who can commit to working for the duration of the day.
