This is our most popular option for getting involved and is a blast! Volunteer shifts are available from Thursday, July 11 through Sunday, July 14 and shifts typically last 4-5 hours. In exchange for your time, you can get a free one or two-day ticket and t-shirt. Get more details and sign up here.


Our planning team volunteers work with executive director, Jarin Hart and/or Des Moines Music Coalition board members on things like art installations, vending, booking, interactive activities, ticketing, marketing and more. If you are looking to invest more time and really make an impact on the festival, this is the area for you. Contact for details.
