FAQ

My bestie is also volunteering, can you coordinate my shift with his or hers?

When you fill out your applications be sure to indicate their name. Keep in mind that with so many volunteers and many varied needs we cannot guarantee your assignment with friends, but we will certainly try!

Is transportation provided?

No. All volunteers are responsible for their own transportation to and from the festival. We encourage you to park in one of our shuttle lots. We will provide you with a parking pass.

Should I bring anything?

You should wear sturdy, closed-toe shoes. You might want to bring sunscreen, a water bottle, and a snack. Depending on weather, you also might want to bring extra layers of clothing.
