Northern Lights Festival Volunteer Application

Who can volunteer?

Anyone over the age of 16 can volunteer at the festival. You do not need to be in the music industry to volunteer – a good portion of our volunteers are enthusiastic folk fans.



Volunteer Structure

As a volunteer, you will be assigned to a specific team (events, security, production, runner, etc.) each with its own Crew Chief. Crew Chiefs are responsible for scheduling and training a specific volunteer area of the festival and they are also responsible for checking in with their volunteers throughout the festival to ensure that volunteers understand their assignment.

Volunteer teams include:

  • Events

  • Hospitality

  • Information

  • Instrument Check

  • Load-in/Load-out

  • Merch

  • Marketplace

  • Registration

  • Runners

  • Security/Doorkeepers

  • Special Projects

  • Volunteer Coordination
