Volunteers Application

Thank you for your interest in joining our team of Volunteers for Mo:Dem Festival 2019! Each year we are truly blessed to have an amazing team of Volunteers who dedicate their time and energy to help us create one of the most spectacular shows on the planet.
Volunteering at Mo:Dem Festival is a great way to get involved and to become a vital part of our demented family. A great opportunity to get a taste of working behind the scenes and discovering the real essence of Mo:Dem. The dedication and support of our Volunteers is a major part of the festival’s success. We are looking to engage reliable and enthusiastic volunteers who are keen to help us co-create a sacred space where nature, art, creativity, technology and the spirits of the forest meet to dance.

To be considered for a volunteer role at Mo:Dem Festival, you must meet the following criteria:
- Must have purchased a valid Mo:Dem Festival ticket either from Hadra Online shop or one of Mo:Dem’s ambassadors.
- Be over the age of 18.
- Be available to arrive at the festival site according to the requirements of the specific Volunteering program you have applied for.
- Able to commit to the event for the allocated time.
- Turn up to assigned shifts on time and in a fit state to carry out your duties.
- Be outgoing with good communication skills and initiative.
- Be responsible for your own safety and your belongings.

Note: Volunteers are required to purchase a ticket in advance in order for us to ensure that our volunteers turn up on time and carry out the tasks delegated to them. In the past, a number of applicants have accepted positions but then decided not to turn up or perform their duties. This puts unfair pressure on those who have turned up and taken their responsibilities seriously. By introducing this “safety net” we hope to make applicants think a little more carefully before submitting their application.

In exchange Volunteers will receive:
- On-site meals for the shifts/days you work.
- Access to a dedicated volunteer campsite, with showers and amenities.
- Help and support with anything whilst you are on site.
- Upon successful completion of the volunteer program, you will be entitled to a refund of the face value of your Mo:Dem Festival ticket (excluding b/f).
- The opportunity to make great friends in one of the most magical settings on earth!
