Front Gate
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, processing will-call ticket reservations, and filing waivers. There will also be additional duties, like checking passes in the parking lot and handing out trash bags.

High energy work environment, attention to detail, and personal skills a must.

Shuttle Help
You know 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 folks in friendly conversation.

Hype crew, must love Otis.

These volunteers are responsible for the running and supervising activities and workshops. Activities will occur on Saturday afternoon and may run on a different schedule from the rest of the volunteer shifts. Some volunteers will act as an Otis representative or assistant for the various workshops that will take place during the festival, other volunteers will run events camp counselor style.

The Merch Table is the epicenter of our festival, it serves as an information hub and the place where attendees can purchase Otis or performer’s merch. Volunteers will keep track of and sell Otis Mountain merchandise, record sales, help bands set up / take down their shops, and answer questions from patrons.

Detail oriented, local knowledge, main stage view.

We are committed to minimizing our environmental footprint at the Get Down and as part of our sustainability team you will help us keep the festival grounds clear of trash, hand out trash bags, and implement our recycling program.

Roving shift, nothing can tie you down, passion for trash encouraged.

Sunday Cleanup
Once the festival is finished we have a responsibility to Mother Nature to clean up after ourselves. Tasks will include picking up micro (and probably some macro) trash, handing out trash bags, and directing people to waste bins.

One n' done shift, you won’t miss any music, be the change we want to see in this fest.

Hosted on the ancestral lands of the Kanienkehaka of the Haudenosaunee nation and the Odanak of the Abenaki people. 

Do good things.
