Volunteer FAQs

What are the requirements to volunteer for SDGF?
• Volunteers must be 21 years or older on or before Thursday, June 7, 2018.
• Must have a valid email address that will be the main way of communication.
• Volunteers must be on time for their shift, wearing appropriate attire.
• There is a zero tolerance policy for the usage of alcohol or illegal drugs for volunteers during their shift.
What's the shift like?
• All volunteers will arrive 15 minutes before their shift and work approximately four hours. For pre-festival volunteers, you will be there on Friday, June 8, 2018, mostly in helping decorate the event and help set up the stages. On the festival day, Saturday, June 9, 2018, volunteers will have several options (see descriptions), like being a greeter, general assistance, helping with the stage management, etc. Post-festival volunteers will be helping out on Sunday, June 10, 2018 by cleaning up and breaking down the festival.
My friend is also volunteering. Can you coordinate my shift with his or hers?
• When you and your friend fill out your applications, be sure to indicate their name. Keep in mind that with so many volunteers and many varied needs, we cannot guarantee that you will share assignments with your friends, but we will definitely try!
What if I have to cancel?
• If you need to cancel, please cancel your application via email to sdgypsyfest [AT] by May 11, 2018.
How can I assure that I get on my preferred volunteer crew?
• There are no guarantees of volunteer crew placements. If you have special skills that would make you a better fit for a certain crew, please note that on the application. We appreciate your flexibility and willingness to lend a helping hand!
Is transportation or accommodation provided?
• No. All volunteers are responsible for their own transportation to and from the festival. One (1) GA ticket is given per volunteer for your work, which includes the ability to tent camp, but you must provide your own tent/equipment.
I already bought a ticket, but I would still like to help out for a few hours. Can I do that?
• We appreciate the offer, but for the sake of continuity and planning, we need volunteers who can commit to working a 4 hour shift at an assigned location.
