Please indicate your date and time roster preferences below.

While we like to accommodate any preferences we can, please understand the majority of shifts will be allocated on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday are during the festival setup. Monday is pack up and clean up.

We will need a few people to help us set up and pack down, but these roles are filled very quickly. Most of the help we need is during the Festival, and we may need to roster you during times you haven't given as a preference.

If you still wish to volunteer, but there is a particular time you have work or family commitments, please let us know in additional information below. The times on the table below are general indications, and your shift times will vary according to the role you are in.
