Thanks for your interest in being a volunteer at the 2022 Nelsonville Music Festival! You have just a few steps to sign up to volunteer, please read all of the information below.

Volunteers are required to work a total of 12 hours at NMF, a total of three 4-hour shifts during or before the festival. In exchange for your volunteer time you will receive 1 WEEKEND PASS (good for all three days) and 1 CAR CAMPING PASS (good for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights). You will also receive a t-shirt and be a part of making an amazing weekend of music and art happen!

The Nelsonville Music Festival charges a $15 fee to all volunteers to cover administrative costs and help pay for the t-shirts. When you click the link below, you will be taken to a payment page for the $15 fee (the page has a “quantity” feature, be sure to keep that number at 1). Once you make the payment, you will be redirected to a volunteer application where you can submit your information, preferred volunteer areas, and preferred availability. When the payment and application are completed, they will be sent to our volunteer coordinator who will approve them within 48 hours and send you your password (your email is your username) for the volunteer portal, Volgistics, where you can select your 3, four-hour volunteer shifts.

If you cannot use a credit card to pay above please contact our Volunteer Coordinator at volunteer@nelsonvillefest.org and we will make arrangements for an alternate payment.
