Volunteers are the heart and soul of the festival! They help with a little bit of everything — beer garden, front gate, site setup, infield entrances, recycling, groundskeeping and more. If you are looking to donate some of your time to help us make this year’s festival a success you are in the right place. For volunteering your time you will receive free admission to the festival, a camp spot if needed and an official volunteer festival T-shirt.


Submit your application as soon as possible – volunteer spots are awarded on a first come first serve basis. Submitting this form does not guarantee you a spot. You will then be contacted to schedule your shifts.
After your shifts are scheduled you will receive an email with our Volunteer Agreement including our hold harmless document and a link to upload your identification.
