August 10th - 13th, 2017
We are seeking awesome, hardworking, music-loving individuals to volunteer at Summer Meltdown Festival this August 10-13, 2017. Summer Meltdown volunteers support the festival in a variety of ways, including parking, ticketing, greening, and more. In addition to helping Summer Meltdown pull off an amazing 4-day event, volunteers add to the incredible vibe of community found onsite. We invite you to join us in creating this one-of-a-kind celebration!

Volunteer Requirements:

Pre-Event: To apply to volunteer, each applicant must fully complete the online form and submit payment for the $40 volunteer impact fee. Impact fees help offset the costs of the volunteer program, including volunteer t-shirts, meals, and onsite perks. Any applicant who is not accepted to volunteer will receive a full refund of their impact fee; otherwise, this fee is nonrefundable.

Festival Weekend: All volunteers must submit a $160 deposit prior to the festival weekend. This deposit will be refunded in full upon completion of your volunteer obligations. Volunteers work a total of 12 hours, divided into 3 shifts. Volunteers MUST arrive at the venue no later than 10am on Thursday, August 10th, attend the volunteer orientation, and complete all assigned shifts.

Volunteer Benefits:

In exchange for their amazing contributions to the festival, volunteers receive: admission to all 4 days of the festival; free parking; a volunteer t-shirt; one meal per volunteer shift; exclusive access to performances in the volunteer campground; PLUS the satisfaction of being a part of the magic that is Summer Meltdown!

Volunteer Camping:

Upon their arrival to the venue on Thursday, August 10th, Summer Meltdown volunteers will create a home-away-from-home in the volunteer campground. This campground serves as a home base for volunteers and will be the meeting place for volunteer orientation, announcements, meals, and exclusive acoustic performances.

For volunteers who wish to camp with friends or family, you may move your tent to a general admission campsite starting Friday, August 11th at 11:00am (depending on space availability). Please note that volunteers are not permitted to set up tents or otherwise reserve spots in a general admission camping area prior to this date. Thursday is the busiest time for checking in patrons at the gates and the general admission campgrounds must be kept clear for patrons during this time.
