Event Info

Folks Festival - Work in Exchange for a Ticket Program

We are in full swing preparing for the 30th Annual Folks Festival. Part of what makes all of our festivals magical are the folks that volunteer to help us out. Each volunteer contributes their time and energy during the festival in exchange for a 3-day festival pass.

Volunteers represent Planet Bluegrass to thousands of Festivarians. If the thought of remaining sober during your shifts bums you out, volunteering is not for you. If greeting and helping Festivarians does seem like something you want to do, then we would love to have you be a part of our team!


Work Requirement - 12 hours 
You must be available to work one shift each day of the three-day festival. (Some shifts are available before the festival. Please mark this on your application if interested.)

Accommodation- Camping is sold separately - click here 

Check-In - You can check-in to receive your wristband and staff hat at the Box Office any time before your first shift. (Bring your ID.) Please allow yourself enough time to check-in and walk to your first shift. Our Box Office will open on Thursday, August 6th at noon. You can check-in at your convenience before your first shift. You will need your wristband to access the festival grounds where you are most likely working so plan ahead.
