TomorrowWorld Volunteer Opportunities
TomorrowWorld is coming in just a few weeks and if you’re still pressed for cash and don’t think you’ll be able to afford the festival, check out these great volunteer opportunities! An interesting fact: due to Belgian law, Tomorrowland cannot have volunteers, so this is a great new feature for Tomorrowland/World fans!
WET, or the Work Exchange Team, is a great program that works with tons of festivals besides TomorrowWorld, including Interlocken, Bonnaroo, Camp Bisco, and Coachella. WET volunteers work in a variety of “departments” such as VIP, Parking, Art, Merchandise Sales, Ice and Water, etc. When you apply you can put down what department you’re interested in, though it’s not guaranteed you’ll be placed in that department. You have the option to work before, during, or after the festival. A perk to volunteering before or after the festival is you get to enjoy yourself the entire time, however the total number of hours you must work is greater than if you volunteered during the fest. If you’re volunteering with a crew, you can put in up to 3 friends that you want to be working with. WET provides a separate campsite for it’s volunteers and general volunteers are expected to arrive and check in by 6pm on Wednesday, September 25 (pre-festival volunteers need to arrive Monday, Sept. 23). When you sign up to volunteer you will need to pay a fee of $15 to WET and a $375 deposit which will be refunded to you on the completion of your volunteer work. The general information page for volunteering through WET at TomorrowWorld is available here and FAQ for volunteering with WET at TomorrowWorld is here. General WET FAQ is available here.
Clean Vibes is another great opportunity to volunteer at TomorrowWorld for a free ticket. Similar to WET, Clean Vibes is offered at many festivals, including Hangout, Mountain Jam, Bonnaroo, Camp Bisco, All Good, and more. However, with Clean Vibes you are helping to keep the festival facilities clean, AKA you’re picking up garbage and making sure people put their garbage in the appropriate receptacle (garbage, compost, recycle). You cannot work before the festival, however you do have the option to volunteer during or after the festival (if you work after the festival, you will have to work some extra hours). Like WET, you will need to put down a deposit (the cost of the ticket, which will be refunded after the festival) plus an $15 administrative fee. All Clean Vibes volunteers must check in on Wednesday, Sept. 25 by 6pm and will camp in the staff/volunteer camping area. A fun fact about Clean Vibes is that it was started in 2002 at Bonnaroo!
