Volunteers have a choice of a variety of areas to work in, we ask that Volunteers work all their shifts in one area. We ask all returning volunteers to work in the same area they have worked in previous years. Experienced volunteers working in areas they feel comfortable in help the festival run smooth.

Areas include: Admissions, Volunteer Check-In, Camping, Beer Garden,  Merchandise, Zero Waste & Recycling, Ground Control, Hospitality, Setup & Cleanup, Art Vendor assistance, and more.
