Thanks so much for your interest in volunteering at One Love Music and Art Festival! We have a fantastic location this year that allows for expansion in many ways. There are lots of volunteer opportunities before, during and after our event. Please complete the application now so we may be able to best utilize your help. We will try to accommodate your preferences and will definitely appreciate your flexibility if your assistance is needed elsewhere. If you have some expertise that you are willing to offer, tell us about it in the answer box about skills. If you are a qualified EMT or have medical skills, please say so in that box as well.
Our volunteers work behind the scenes, supporting the department managers to produce the festival, to keep it clean, and to tear it all down when it is over. It's a rewarding experience to produce a transformational festival and to give festivalgoers the best One Love Experience yet!
We depend very much on the help we get from our volunteers; and we appreciate it, a lot! Our volunteers are part of the community that is the event. We look to you to be helpful in all the tasks because they are all necessary, as well as helping to spread the loving vibe that we and the Festival are about. We want you to enjoy the Festival even while working. But every area of the production depends upon volunteers that are committed to being there when we need them. A trend among festivals in general has developed where too many volunteers applied; got accepted; were assigned a department, task and time slot and not shown up. This has led festivals, including ours, to require a deposit as collateral for you showing up for your shifts. Provided you show up on time, sober and as agreed upon, after you complete all your shifts you will be fully refunded within two weeks after the event for your deposit. If you are accepted, you will be sent a link to make your $100 volunteer deposit (PayPal account, credit or debit card required). Some festivals charge a non-refundable application fee; we don't. This deposit adds a level of inconvenience for both the festival and the volunteers, but it works as far as reducing the last-minute confusion finding people to fill in for absent volunteers or worse, being under staffed.
CANCELLATION POLICY: If you have been accepted to be on our team and need to cancel, you have until October 2, 2017 to do so in order to be refunded your deposit. Cancellations dated October 3, 2017 or after will not be refunded. Cancellations need to be communicated via email ONLY. Please put, "I need to cancel" in the subject line.
You will receive an email from us with details about paying the deposit in mid-August; so be ready. After we receive your deposit, we will assign you a department based on your preferences, skills, experience and our needs. Wait a couple of weeks to hear back from us.
YOU NEED A DEVICE: We are using an app that shows volunteers their work schedules. It allows better communications between you and the coordinator. You need to have either an iPhone or iPad with iOS 9.3 or later, or Android phone with 4.4 or later. Make sure your phone has this minimum requirement. Details will follow including where to get the app.
