Please ensure you are available for the tasks described in your application. Successful applicants will be sent a deposit link and asked to confirm, as changes to availability cannot be accepted once your Deposit and your application have been processed.


The Deposit protects the festival if a volunteer cancels or does not show up to their shifts. If for some reason you need to cancel before July 5th, you are responsible for finding another volunteer who is available for the exact same shifts and qualified for the teams you selected. The replacement must be approved in advance by the volunteer coordinator.
