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 2017 festival.

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?

Clean Vibes: These volunteers are all about maintaining and preserving a clean site. You could be helping assure that our fans are properly disposing of their trash, recyclable, and compostable products, helping prep the site each morning before the festival opens, or helping clean up the site after the event ends. These jobs could also possibly include some heavy lifting. 


PRE-Show: Must be available to work a minimum of 18 hours spread into 3 six-hour shifts between July 10th and 13th. 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 14th and 16th. 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 14th and 16th and 2 six-hour shifts between July 17th and 18th. 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.


  • Must be at least 18 years old
  • Must pay a $20 non-refundable application fee
  • Must put down a $189.50 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.
