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 2019 festival.

Sign up here.

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?

There are two different options for volunteering at Forecastle. Each has their own requirements and shift availability. Please read carefully before deciding to apply for one or the other. You must choose between one or the other and cannot do both.


These positions are only open on the PRE-Show dates from July 8th-11th, 2019. These volunteers work in a variety of areas in the days leading up to the festival helping prep and set up the event. You could be helping build an art project, setting up different fan experience areas, or working to help us organize and maintain different part of the site. These jobs could possibly include some heavy lifting.


– Must be at least 18 years old

– Must be available to work at least three 6-hour long shifts between July 8th-11th, 2019.

– Must show up to all shifts on time, sober, wearing proper attire and ready to work until you are dismissed

– Because all work is done before the festival begins, Forecastle Logistics volunteers are not required to pay a deposit or application fee. Wristbands will not be issued until the end of your last shift.


These volunteer positions 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. Clean Vibes volunteers are required to pay a deposit, because some of their shifts involve working during show-days. THERE ARE MULTIPLE SCHEDULE OPTIONS AVAILABLE FOR CLEAN VIBES VOLUNTEERS.
