Thank you for your interest in volunteering at The Nelsonville Music Festival!

It takes hundreds of folks coming together to make NMF happen.

Volunteer registration for the 2023 festival is not yet open…please check back in the spring!

We’ve included how our process *typically* works below. Updated instructions and volunteer FAQS will come when 2023 registration opens.


Here’s how it works:

  • You’ll pay a $15 fee to help cover administrative costs, pay for your t-shirt, and to support our volunteer program.
    • We’ll hold your encrypted credit card info to charge the cost of a weekend ticket if you do not show up or complete your volunteer duties. (We depend on all of our volunteers to take their work as seriously as we do!)
    • 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.
  • Once you make the payment, you’ll be redirected to a volunteer application where you can submit your information, preferred volunteer areas, and preferred availability.
  • Our volunteer coordinator will review and process your application, typically within 48-hours. Sometimes this takes a little longer, please be patient!
  • You’ll receive a password (your email is your username) for our volunteer portal, Volgistics, where you can select your 3, four-hour volunteer shifts.
