    **If you work on Thursday and/or Monday, you get a one-day pass to the day of your choice**
  • Off-site parking + Recycling/Composting volunteers: Weekend pass for one (1) shift, and parking for the day of volunteering
  • Camping: access to camping for the whole weekend (Thurs-Mon) -- must either purchase a pass to the festival or complete a volunteer shift at the festival to get a festival pass.
