Set Up: Sat Aug 7th 2004, help set up booths, paint signs and get the park ready for the festival

During the Festival:

Gates: Stand at the gates, take money, greet all the pretty people. Work it sugar, Under the Volcano relies on donations to exist.

Info Table: Sit in the shade and answer questions. Questions like: When is the last bus? What band is on stage right now? Where are the workshops? Also includes directing incoming volunteers to their stations. You will be equippd with information and walkie talkies. You will feel smart and powerful.

Children’s Area: Play with kids! Art! Sports! Fun! Sign up quick, this
area always fills up first!

Security: Feel tough, be tough, but peace sister, no rough stuff.

Parking: Direct cars to empty parking spaces, chastise single occupancy vehicles, get to say “No, your other left, sir”

Food: Feed volunteers, munch on stuff when people aren’t looking.

Recycling: ‘cuz it’s better than taking out the trash.

After the Festival:

Take Down: Break down the stages, pick up garbage. More fun than you might think. We usually go back the next day and can provide rides if you need one.


All Volcano volunteers will get free entrance to the festival, one meal, and in some cases a t-shirt.
