Volunteering

How can I volunteer for the Festival?

Volunteer applications for bmmf 2017 can only be made via our website by completing an online application form.

All Volunteers for bmmf 2017 are required to complete the online application form including volunteers who have worked in a volunteer position in previous festivals.

What's the deal with volunteering?

If you'd like to volunteer for the 2017 festival this is the deal.

Your volunteer commitment is a minimum of 10 hours over the festival. In return you receive a free weekend pass, a festival t-shirt, an invitation to the Volunteers Party, and the warm fuzzy feeling of being part of the Festival.

We are happy to try and meet your needs if you have kids, work, travel restrictions or other responsibilities, but there is a need to share the shifts around in an equitable way.
