Volunteering and Stewarding at the Festival

We wouldn't be anywhere without our volunteers! We are super grateful to everyone who helped last year, and contributed to the success of the event. 

We are now looking for stewards for this year's festival, or extra help during the weekend at the festival HQ for an hour or two. Contact us at
