Festival set-up volunteers help us with the momentous task of—you guessed it—setting up and breaking-down. Typical jobs include the set-up and break-down of festival tents, barricades, tables, chairs, fans, and other supplies. We ask that any set-up and break-down volunteer be prepared to do some heavy lifting. We strongly advise wearing close-toed, sturdy shoes.
