Volunteer!

CBMF is a %100 volunteer-run festival and we need your help to make it happen. Please consider signing up do to some volunteer work for us. It is scientifically proven that volunteers have more fun than regular festival-goers.

WHY VOLUNTEER:

Because we need your help!

Because you get free food all weekend long!!!

Because it’ll be fun…

Really, there is no reason not to volunteer.

We will open volunteer applications on MARCH 1st 2017 – email campbellbayvolunteer@gmail.com with the positions you’re interested in, and we’ll reply with an intake form that will help us find the best fit for your and your skills! Applications are open until MAY 15th, but some scheduling will be completed before then – apply early to secure a position on your favourite committee.
We often keep a waitlist of volunteers in case of cancellations, so if you missed the deadline but feel enthused, email us anyways.

2017 Campbell Bay Music Festival Volunteer Opportunities:

Bar
Staff the zone selling local beer and cider. Should be fast and friendly, and must be 19+ and have a Serving It Right license.

Camping / Parking
This friendly committee looks after organizing cars as they come in, helping folks find spots to pitch their tents, and, yes, the outhouses.

Floaters
We need reliable folks who are down for whatever we throw at you! You’ll be part of a crew that we can rely on to jump in and fill gaps in just about any committee, or take on jobs we haven’t even imagined yet. To be on this diverse crew, you’ll need to have a cell phone that we can reach you on during the festival. 

Gate
As a gate volunteer, you will be the first person guests meet when they arrive on the festival grounds. You will work in teams and greet people, exchange tickets for wristbands, orient them to the grounds, guide them towards the camping / parking folks, and answer any questions that they have.

Kitchen Helpers
This team helps prep, cook and serve food, and cleans up after mealtimes. We’ll be feeding performers and volunteers on Friday and Saturday evening and Saturday and Sunday morning, as well as some lunch and late-night food. This is a big committee!

Medical Tent 
Seeking folks with first aid or medical training who can act as first responders if necessary!

Merch 
This team staffs the merch booth! Selling performer records and shirts, and festival shirts and memorabilia. Helping folks find artist mailing lists. Under cover.

Security
Security is not quite the right word for what we’re after – we want a peaceful presence of folks in bright, identifiable shirts to have an eye on the site. Looking for people with great communication skills who are comfortable with late-night shifts.

Setup / Strike
Build it up, tear it down! We need your muscle and your wits for long days before and after the fest, and you get to take the whole festival off. Must commit to being available for daytime shifts on Thursday before the festival and Sunday after the festival.

Site
Maintenance, cleanup, garbage collection / organizing recycling stations, and more! Building things, digging things, carrying things. Fun, mobile work.
