Be a Volunteer
2019 VOLUNTEER APPLICATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED. THANK YOU!
We're full for this year, but please consider applying for 2020 when applications open up in February.
Experience the entire Ness Creek Music Festival for free! Show up a day early and scout out the perfect site for your home base during the festival weekend. Hang out in the hospitality lounge backstage and enjoy a delicious hot meal every day. Note that volunteers must indicate that they wish to purchase a meal card for $20 in order to take advantage of the backstage meal service. This does not include the Wednesday or Sunday dinners. Those will continue to be offered to all volunteers regardless of whether they have chosen to purchase a meal card or not. Join us for a volunteer barbecue to kick off the weekend, and cap off your festival experience with the volunteer appreciation party on Sunday. Make new friends, gain valuable experience, and know that you are playing an essential role at the festival!
Volunteers truly are the backbone of the festival. You make the magic happen! Whether you’re a first timer or an old hand, we appreciate the smiles, commitment and team spirit you bring to the festival! Check out our list of Festival Volunteer Crews to get an idea of where you might fit best. You can select your first three crew choices when applying – your crew placement will take into account your preferences. Please also look over our Volunteer Guidelines. As a Ness Creek Festival volunteer, you are part of a big and wonderful team that works together to create an amazing Saskatchewan event, so we use these guidelines in an effort to make your experience a positive one.
If you've been asked to pay a volunteer deposit or need to pay your membership fees, you can find all of that information here: Volunteer Fees
