We want to especially encourage those who don’t have the resources to afford a festival ticket to consider volunteering. In return for just 12 hours of work over the course of the weekend (or in the months leading up to it) we offer a free festival pass and your own festival promoter code that pays you 10% commission for every ticket you help us sell. If you are coming from out of town, we will also put you in touch with local Austin attendees who may be able to help you find affordable accommodations.

Volunteer tasks during the festival could include set-up or tear-down, registering and greeting guests, prepping program spaces and stages, helping keep the grounds clean and green, or whatever other little tasks are needed to keep the event running smoothly. Prior to the festival we especially need help with marketing and promotion -  media and graphic design, local on-the-ground promotion efforts, recruiting potential partners and more. And all of our volunteers are asked to help us practice radical hospitality by loving the people who come and building a fun, festive community whose positive energy can be carried with us all year round!
