A few things to note:

Volunteering at MusicFest!

  1. Returning volunteers will be contacted directly by their Crew Coordinators from last year (or a new Coordinator of their Crew from last year) before February 1st. If you have not heard from your Coordinator by February 1st please send the Volunteer Coordinator an email.
  2. If you did not volunteer for MusicFest last year but have volunteered in previous years you will need to fill out a volunteer application form for this year.
  3. If you are a returning Volunteer who wishes to apply for a different crew this year, please contact your Coordinator from last year to let them know. You will then be required to reapplythis year for the new crew of your choice.
  4. Some of our crews are marked as self – recruiting. Please do not apply for these crews unless you have been recruited by the Coordinator and know the Coordinators name. If you were not recruited and still apply for one of these crews, you likely will not be placed on this crew and may be rerouted to a different crew that you did not apply for.
  5. If you have been recruited by the Coordinator of a self – recruiting Crew, please list the Crew name and Coordinator name in the appropriate fields. When prompted to fill in first and second choice Crews on the application please click on the ***** if the corresponding Crew is not available.
  6. If you are 16-19 years of age (new or returning) and have already applied as a Volunteer you will need to have a youth waiver signed by your parents or guardian and submit it to your Crew Coordinator.
