Three easy steps, then you are well on your way to snagging one of those prized FloydFest volunteer spots:
1) Read these details below and be sure you are clear on all requirements. Email email@example.com with any questions.
2) Fill out the online application in its entirety and select your 1st choice shift schedule. Please select at LEAST one night shift and a TOTAL OF FIVE SHIFTS to total 20 hours of volunteer work.
3) Pay the $20 application processing fee.
- You must be 18 years old or older.
- To work in any ABC areas of the festival, you must be 21 years old or older.
- Identification will be checked and age will be verified when you come to Volunteer Check-in to get your credentials.
- Must have a positive, hard-working mentality.
- Must be on-time for every shift (if not a little early).
- Once OFF duty, you may do as you wish as long as you are not wearing your volunteer credentials and are not in uniform (an inside-out volunteer shirt is still recognized as a uniform). However, if a volunteer is off duty and is problematic to festival operations, security or the law, volunteer privileges are likely to be lost as a result.
