Just because you are reading this – we think you're RAD already!
Volunteering is a great way to get involved in the magic of building and running the festival. You get to work with the people that create the festival as well other awesome vollies and of course watch the bands and enjoy the festival in return for your shift. It’s a win / win really!
Jobs and shift times are varied, and change with each festival. If you check out each festival application it will show you the available shifts. Our favourite thing to do is to connect people with the jobs that they can shine in. Make sure you tell us about yourself and what makes your boat float!
Many Hands LOVE our vollies – we try to make this the best experience possible for you. You will receive:
$2.20 to verify your credit card.
A few hours of your time.
We’ll confirm your application after we’ve had a good look at it. You can usually expect to hear from us within a few weeks.
We do give preference to repeat vollies, and will refuse applications for one of the following reasons:
Usually 3 weeks before the festival.
We ask you to sign this to assure that you are in the know about all your obligations as a vollie.
We know festivals are super fun places, and its easy to get carried away in glitter and good times. We need to make sure you are going to turn up to your shift, and the legally binding way to do this is to get you to tick the agreement. You wont be able to volunteer with us unless you agree to these terms and conditions.
We do this so we can securely capture your credit card details and then charge you if you don’t turn up for your shift or don’t adhere to the terms and conditions of volunteering. Although we firmly believe in the good in everyone -Imagine if we didn’t do this? Every person and their glitter tights would be applying just for a free ticket!
Absolutely! Make sure you request them, and they request you! We will try our best, but can’t always guarantee this. You also may not be on the same job, but maybe on the same shift time. Not really a biggie- you’ll be partying together after your shift anyway!
Okay – We are music lovers too- We totally get this. Being a volunteer means that you may have to work when your favourite band is on. It is a slim chance that this may happen. If it does – and you REALLY can’t cope- email us. We’ll see what we can do – although shift changes are VERY rare indeed.
Please keep this in mind when you apply to be a vollie
We hold no qualms about this one. If you miss your shift/ are late for your shift or turn up under the influence, you WILL be charged for your ticket and blacklisted at future events
