Volunteer at DCMF!

Volunteers are the lifeblood of the Dawson City Music Festival.
Many people also consider it the best way to see the festival – from the inside.

Can I volunteer?

Yes, absolutely! Every year, people from near and far volunteer with our different crews to help make the festival the best it can possibly be. There are positions suitable for people of all ages, ability, and availability and we are happy to accommodate specific needs. Between July 19 and 21 we are looking for help in the merch booth, at the door, ushering, serving drinks, helping out in the kitchen, and more!

What is expected of me as a volunteer?

We require all volunteers to be reliable and responsible. You will be representing the festival and our community so we ask that you be polite, professional, sober, and courteous at all times. Please stay in touch with our Volunteer Coordinators before the festival – and of course, show up for your shifts!

Volunteer duties are divided into 5-hour shifts. You can choose to volunteer for one, two, three (or more) volunteer shifts. Learn more about these options below.

How do I sign up?

Simple. All you have to do is fill out this form.

What do I get for volunteering?

Listen to great live music, contribute to the Yukon’s biggest summer event, and get awesome perks like festival passes and a VIP volunteer party!

Volunteer duties are divided into 5-hour shifts. If you volunteer for…

5 Hours: you get a Friday wristband OR a Sunday wristband. Your choice! This is a great option for those who want to participate but are very busy during the festival weekend.

10 Hours: you get a Friday wristband AND a Sunday wristband. We’ve got morning, afternoon, evening, and night shifts so you can make sure to see all your favourite bands and plan your weekend in advance.

15+ Hours: you get a full weekend pass. This is the most popular option, as you get to be in Festival-mode the entire weekend, earn a full free pass, make a ton of friends and work on up to three different super fun crews!
