Frequently Asked Questions
Will everyone who applies be successful?
No. We receive more than double the amount of applicants than there are Volunteer spots, so this means we don’t have room for everyone – it’s nothing personal. If you miss out you can ask to be placed on the ‘Volunteer Waiting List.’
When will I find out if I have a Volunteer spot?
All Volunteer applicants will be notified before the end of Round One Ballot Sales.
How long do Volunteer shifts go for?
In exchange for a full festival ticket, Lucky Volunteers will receive 2 x 4 hour shifts that take place over the festival weekend. This is over $40 per hour for 8 hours work. We cannot accept shift time requests.
Am I required in the lead up to the festival?
No. This year you will collect your ticket on your way to the festival site. Please be sure to check emails regularly. You will receive your shift details and all correspondence this way.
When will I find out my shifts?
Shifts will be sent out via email roughly 6 – 8 weeks prior to the festival.
What if my shifts clash with my favourite band?
We have introduced an initiative whereby Lucky Volunteers are able to nominate an ‘Unmissable Band’. We will endeavour to schedule your shifts to avoid clashing with your ‘Unmissable Band’. However, please note, there are no guarantees. Please take this into consideration before applying to volunteer.
If I apply to become a Volunteer and miss out, is there any other way I can receive a Volunteer spot?
There is no guarantee of receiving a Volunteer spot, but you are more than welcome to sign up for the Volunteer Waiting List.
Why is there a Volunteer Agreement?
We need to be sure that Volunteers will honour their commitment by completing their shifts, so we put it in writing. This also covers Volunteers under the festival’s insurance. We ask all Volunteer applicants to complete this agreement. Please be sure to read the Agreement prior to agreeing to it.
Why do I need to supply credit card details?
As security for a Volunteer ticket. You will only be asked for this information if you are selected as a ‘Lucky Volunteer’, in which case your credit card will be charged a small processing fee of $2.00. Your credit card details will then be securely stored until after the festival. If you breach the Volunteer Agreement, Terms and Conditions or any of the festival policies then your card will be charged with the cost of the ticket (including booking fee) plus an administration fee of $150.
What if I need support?
MMF Pty Ltd is an equal opportunity employer. Notify your Manager or the ICC if there is something you would like us to be aware of. This may include accessibility and welfare needs and medical conditions. Your privacy is respected. You can also register medical conditions with First Aid during the festival and they can refrigerate medication on your behalf.
