We have continued to operate with a by donation
system in order to maintain the festival’s accessibility.
However, there are a lot of expenses incurred while organizing
an event this large, and we rely on donations to help cover
all of these.
May we suggest:
$ 5 for unemployed
$10 for under-employed
There are countless opportunities to get
involved in the festival, both in the weeks preceding it,
and on the actual day. We have to set up the entire site,
staff the food kitchens, support the security staff, help
peoples find parking, etc. and it’s a lot of work. We
rely on the energy and dedication of our volunteer crew, so
why not get involved & participate in an interactive way?
As little or as much time as you can give is appreciated.

Culture is the lifeblood of any community
and of any organized resistance, and it is in this spirit
that Under The Volcano comes together for our 14th year to
celebrate "Cultures of Resistance". Our initial
mandate (which includes our by-donation ticketing system,
programming of non-mainstream artists and no large corporate
sponsorship) has remained intact, although our audience size
has grown exponentially. We strive to present a broad range
of voices, highlighting many communities and their work, and
we hope to continue to build bridges with diverse groups of
It is not our intention nor desire to create
an environment that hinges on a whole bunch of rules, but
we have 3 that are very important...
Please respect the neighborhood, as we have
a good relationship with the community around Cates Park and
it is important to us that this is maintained.
The latter rule seems to be a difficult
one for people to accept, but it is necessary nevertheless.
The membersof the collective all love dogs (in fact most of
us are dog owners), but to ensure that everyone (including
parents with small kids and people who are scared of dogs)
have a good time, we ask that you not bring your pet to the
festival. The crew at the gates will not allow anyone with
a dog inside, irregardless if they are on a a leash or not.
save yourself a trip and leave the pooches at home.
Lastly, we would like to thank you for continuing
to support Under The Volcano. Next year will be our 15th Anniversary,
and we hope you’ll join us for what will prove to be
our biggest festival yet!
