Volunteer Camping

Volunteer Camp is located in a portion of the Meadow Campground. This beautiful, grassy campground is located within a short walk of the venue. Please note that this campground is tent-camping only, so all vehicles must remain in the parking lot.

Volunteers are required to camp in the area designated for volunteers. The GA camping areas are reserved for patrons who have purchased the opportunity to camp in that space. Thank you very much for your understanding as the festival aims to be sustainable for decades to come, and respectful of all who participate.



To apply

Please complete the online form and pay the volunteer impact fee to submit your volunteer application. Select TWO preferred shifts (ONE per day). Please note that shift requests are not guaranteed, and you are likely to receive an evening shift even if you did not request one.
