The volunteer requirement for festivals is 3 days or 14-16 hours onsite. In exchange you will receive one-day pass to enjoy yoga classes and the rest of the full Wanderlust program as a thank you for all your hard work.
A one-day pass ticket gives you access to the festival, allowing you to choose up to three activities per day. In addition, you’ll receive a volunteer wristband that allows you drop in yoga at The Greatest Place, any other day when you are not on a shift, and access to all music and the general festival grounds. You will also receive a super sweet volunteer t-shirt and unlimited high fives.
