In order to become a WET member for the Harvest Music Festival, you must complete the online application. Once accepted, you are required to submit a deposit via credit card/check card in the amount of $200 (the price of a ticket with camping) to secure your spot. The deposit is applied immediately when you submit your credit card information, held throughout the festival, and released after the festival pending completion of your volunteer hours.
All applicants are notified of their status within 2 weeks via their "My Events" section on the WET website.
WET members receive admission to the festival, camping, WET t-shirt, and an amazing experience. Water is available to WET members while on shift.
WET members will perform a variety of tasks to assist in the festival’s success. Departments include: Clean Up, Parking, Merchandise, VIP, Catering, Production and many more! A WET member may be asked to switch departments as last minute changes surface. Any task in which a WET member is not physically capable of performing should be noted by the WET member to the supervisor and the WET member are deferred to another task. All tasks are supervised.
All WET members must work an average minimum of 15 hours for admission to the festival. If you are selected for Pre-festival work and you complete all you’re your hours before the festival starts, a minimum of 20 hours are required.
If a WET coordinator feels that a volunteer is under the influence of alcohol or illegal drugs and cannot perform the assigned duties, the volunteer are relieved of duties and forfeit their WET deposit. Absolutely no exceptions are made or discussed.
You may choose on your application your top three bands that you prefer not to miss but please note that we will try our best to honor your request, but there is no guarantee that you will not be working during your top three bands. Most night shifts are located inside the music festival concert area.
NO, unfortunately purchased tickets cannot be refunded. All WET members must make their deposit through the WET website in order to volunteer.
Potential WET members should mark on their applications to signify whether or not they are available to work before or after the festival starts. You are notified beforehand if we have a pre festival position available. Please note that this does not mean that you will complete all of your shifts before the festival starts. You may be required to also work during the festival.
WET members must be at least 18 years or older.
Schedules are determined by festival labor needs, past experience, friend requests, band requests and any other appropriate factors. You must expect to work at lease one night shift during the festival days. Unless you have been requested by a specific department head, please do not email us requesting certain shifts or departments.
After you fill out the WET application and have been accepted through the WET website, you will have to submit a $200 deposit online via credit card/check card. After you have submitted your deposit information, you are confirmed as a WET volunteer.
ONLY credit cards/check cards are accepted prior to the event.
Once it has been confirmed that you have completed your obligation for admission to the festival, we will release your deposit. (Within 5 - 10 business days after the festival)
