We welcome over 1100 volunteers to our team each year and we’d love to have you join our crew!

Thanks so much for your interest in volunteering with Vancouver Island MusicFest.

Volunteers are the lifeblood of our organization. We welcome over 1100 volunteers to our team each year and try to place as many new volunteers as possible. If we can’t place you this year we will put your name on our waitlist and contact you as soon as a crew opening becomes available.

Our 2024 Volunteer application form is now available and can be found here.

A few things to note:

Volunteer at MusicFest!

  1. Returning volunteers will be contacted directly by their past Crew Coordinators (or new coordinators of their pre-existing crew) on January 15, 2024. If you have not heard from your coordinator by February 1st please send the volunteer coordinator an email.
  2. If you did not volunteer last year but have in the past you will need to fill out a volunteer application. Be sure to write in the name of the coordinator of the crew that you were on.
  3. Some of our crews are self recruiting. If you apply for a crew that is self recruiting and have not in fact been recruited by that coordinator your application will be sent on to a crew that has space and accepts applications.
  4. If you are 16-19 years of age (new or returning) and you have already applied
    you will need to have a youth waiver signed by your parents or guardian and
    submitted to your Crew Coordinator. Click here for Youth Waiver
  5. If you plan to camp in the Volunteer Campground you will be required to complete the Volunteer Camping Registration in advance. Your Crew Coordinator will be emailing the link to you. If you plan to camp in the Public Campground you will be required to pay. The Volunteer Campground Policy is available on the Volunteer Resource page.
  6. Volunteers will no longer receive a discount on Merch. With rising costs the event wishes to keep merch affordable to everyone. In order to do that we can no longer offer discounts.
  7. You cannot apply until you have read the Volunteer Rights & Responsibilities.  Click Here to read.
