Volunteer with Summer Meltdown Festival!

We are seeking awesome, hardworking, music-loving individuals to volunteer at Summer Meltdown Festival this August 2-5, 2018. Summer Meltdown volunteers support the festival in a variety of ways, including parking, ticketing, greening, and more. In addition to helping Summer Meltdown pull off an amazing 4-day event, volunteers add to the incredible vibe of community found onsite. We invite you to join us in creating this one-of-a-kind celebration!

Volunteer Requirements

To apply to volunteer, each applicant must fully complete the online form and submit payment for the $60 volunteer impact fee. Impact fees help offset the costs of the volunteer program, including volunteer t-shirts, meals, and onsite perks. Any applicant who is not accepted to volunteer will receive a full refund of their impact fee; otherwise, this fee is nonrefundable.
All volunteers accepted into the program must submit a $200 deposit prior to the festival weekend. This deposit will be refunded in full upon completion of your volunteer obligations.
Volunteers work a total of 12 hours, divided into 2 shifts. Volunteers are encouraged to arrive on Wednesday, August 1st, the day before the festival begins. Volunteers must be checked in no later than 10am on Thursday, August 2nd, attend the volunteer orientation, and complete all assigned shifts. Volunteers must also follow Summer Meltdown’s rules and guidelines, which are in place to help ensure the safety and the integrity of our event.

Volunteer Benefits

In exchange for their amazing contributions to the festival, volunteers receive: admission to all 4 days of the festival; free parking; a volunteer t-shirt; one meal per volunteer shift; exclusive access to an acoustic performance for volunteers; PLUS the satisfaction of being a part of the magic that is Summer Meltdown!

Volunteer Camping – NEW Location

Volunteer camping has moved to a new location this year – Squire Creek Campground. This beautiful, forested campground is located 0.8 miles from the venue and features a pristine creek and old growth trees. There will be complimentary shuttle service provided for volunteers between the campground and the venue. Volunteers may also access the venue from the campground via a short trail walk.
Please note that volunteers will not be permitted to relocate their campsite to the patron campgrounds this year. We are planning for an increase in our attendance, so all campgrounds on site will be utilized for patrons. We understand that this is a shift from what we have done in the past, so we thank you in advance for your support in helping Summer Meltdown reach its sustainability goals!

To apply

Please complete the online form and pay the volunteer impact fee to submit your volunteer application. Select TWO preferred shifts (ONE per day). Please note that shift requests are not guaranteed, and you are likely to receive an evening shift even if you did not request one.
