Apply to Volunteer

Thank you for your interest in joining our team.

We use the same volunteer form for all our gatherings including Working Bees, so please user the form below

Before you fill in your application, we ask that you please read the following to help understand what to expect when volunteering for ConFest.


What Does it Mean to Volunteer at ConFest?

Most importantly, everyone at ConFest is a volunteer! 

ConFest is entirely volunteer and community created. That means no one gets paid to organise the festival. It is co-created by you and me.

Every adult is asked to contribute a minimum of two hours of their time as part of their ticket price. This fosters an active community and keeps ticket prices affordable. ConFest is everybody's gathering. If you see something that needs doing or a way that you can give back to the community for two hours of your time, please go ahead and do it. If you are unsure of how you can contribute your two hours, please please come to the Info tent and enquire about how you can help. 

Volunteer for more than 2 hours
If you would like to volunteer above and beyond the required 2 hours (or have already done so) and would like to help build the core operations of ConFest with us, please fill out the volunteer application below. Once you have volunteered 24 hours, we thank you by offering you a $10 volunteer's ticket.

If you have never volunteered at ConFest before, to be eligible for a volunteer’s ticket, you must have done your 24 hours of volunteer work prior to the festival start. This can often easily be achieved by arriving 5 days before the start of the festival and helping with the last week of 'set up'. Exceptions apply if you are volunteering in emergency departments.

Volunteer for more than 12 hours per year
If you volunteer more than 12 hours you get a portion back
 * You must file an activity form

Volunteer for more than 24 hours per year
If you volunteer more than 24 hours you get $90 back
 * You must file an activity form

There are a number of teams you can volunteer for

Learn about the different teams here

Rangers and Medics
We are also offering early entry for those that will volunteer a couple of shifts with welcoming and rangers. You won’t be eligible for a volunteer's ticket but you will get the privilege of choosing your campsite before the masses arrive and having an extra day in the bush getting some extra ConFest loving. If this applies to you, please also fill in the form, making sure you select early entry.

If you end up volunteering 24 hours, get an application form from Site Operations because you'll also be eligible for membership to DTE (with voting rights), a refund of $90 for this gathering, and a $10 ticket to next years gathering.

Below you'll find a link to our volunteer application form. PLEASE ALSO READ THE TEAM DESCRIPTIONS BELOW. If you already have a team in mind, or if one role really appeals to you above all others please nominate it in your application form. A volunteer coordinator or team facilitator will then contact you. 

If you are unsure where you'd most like to help, or where you'll really be needed, just complete the volunteer form, selecting all the teams that interest you, and we'll be in touch. 

Many people will attest that what we give to ConFest, we get back ten-fold!

Please make you’re registered and logged into the website before you complete your form.
**PLEASE NOTE: registering and filling in the form does not mean you are a confirmed volunteer. We email out our confirmations closer to the event.
