Don’t just go to Forecastle, be a part of it!

Forecastle will be looking for some outstanding volunteers to help us put on the 2016 festival.

Forecastle Volunteer Requirements:

  • Must be at least 18 years old
  • Must pay a $20 non-refundable application fee
  • Must put down a $180 deposit that will be refunded shortly after the festival as long as you complete your work assignments
  • Must show up for all assigned shifts on time, sober, wearing proper attire, and ready to work until you are dismissed.

You’ll have your choice of three different schedule tracks:

PRE-Show: Must be available to work a minimum of 18 hours spread into 3 six-hour shifts between July 11th and 14th. Yes, you work a few more hours than During-Show volunteers, but you’re done before the festival ever starts.

During-Show: Must be available to work a minimum of 12 hours spread into 2 six-hour shifts between July 15th and 17th. Sure, you work during the festival, but you will work one less shift and are guaranteed one full day off during the festival to enjoy the shows.

During/Post-Show: Must be available to work a minimum of 18 hours spread into 1 six-hour shift between July 15th and 17th and 2 six-hour shifts between July 18th and 19th. If you’re willing to stick around and work after the festival, you’ll only have to miss a small portion of the event and are guaranteed two full days off during the festival to enjoy the shows.

What do you get?

In exchange for your contribution to the success of an amazing event, you will receive a festival t-shirt to commemorate your experience and access to the festival whenever you aren’t working.

What do you do?

We’re still putting together all of our needs for 2016, so keep an eye here as things develop. Volunteers will work all over the site doing a variety of tasks from helping set up different areas, to customer service, to hospitality management, and helping us keep the site clean.

How do you sign up?

Applications will be available in March.
