You know when you're at Otis when you hear “BAIL UP”! The Shuttle crew has the fun job of helping attendees get on and off the shuttle, keeping attendees safe on the access road, and try to engage attendees in friendly conversation.
The Front Gate crew is one of the first friendly faces attendees see when they get to Otis. These volunteers will be responsible for admitting attendees into the festival, handling ticket sales, distributing wristbands, organizing entrance lines, processing will-call ticket reservations. There is also a late night shift where Volunteers can work a 5 hr shift on Friday.
These volunteers are responsible for the running and supervising the pre-approved games and activities. Know where the games or activity should be set up, the materials or equipment you’ll need, keeping the games friendly and fun.
At the merchandise table volunteers are looking to sell the new line of Otis memorabilia. This activity breaks down to maintaining an inventory, keeping a record of daily sales, help bands set up / take down of their merch and answer any questions about the festival.
Sunday Clean Up
Once the festival is finished we have a responsibility to Mother Nature to clean up after ourselves. These volunteers will work one five hour shift on Sunday.
