General Outline for Night Security:



  • Two people per shift
  • There will be two four-hour shifts, one Friday night, and one Saturday night.
  • 4 total volunteer positions available



  • Both Volunteers on shift must have a cell phone in case of need for contact.
  • All night security volunteers must be at least 18 years of age.
  • Night security must be completely sober on shift, and the hour leading up to their shift. No drinking while on duty is permitted.
  • Must have a general knowlege of the festival's policies and procedures.
  • Ideally individuals should have some experience or training in security duties, however there will be some training will be given on site.
  • Security volunteers must be good-standing citezens with no criminal history.
  • Must attend a training and orientation session at festival location on Friday Aug 18 at 3pm.



  • Every half hour they must take a walk around the grounds checking:
    • Stage Area
    • Gate Entrance (which is closed and locked at midnight each night)
    • camping areas
    • Lake
  • In checking these areas you are looking for any suspicious activity, unruly persons, or anything out of the ordinary. If any of these things are found, investigation is required with appropriate action to follow where needed.
  • Respond to any gate requests (there will be a number posted at the locked gate to reach security volunteers if the gate needs to be opened or closed for good reason).
  • If any campsite if found to be too loud, or if any other campers make a noise complaint, night security will remind the noisy campers of festival camping policies.
  • Respond to and report any emergency that arises during the night.



  • Of all volunteer duties this one carries the most responsibility.
  • We don't expect any problems to arise during the night, however night security would be the first line of response to anything thay may arise.
  • Due to the nature of the festivals location, it is impossible to fully secure the stage area, and pavilion. It is nessesary to have round the clock eyes to keep an eye on things to avoid any ocassion of theft or other suspicious activity
  • This is a more physically demanding task as it is a four hour shift through the dead of night. Volunteers on this shift must be awake and fully alert. It is reccomended that volunteers bring some form of light entertainment that doesn't distract too much in order to avoid boredem and fatigue.
  • It is strongly reccomended that volunteers on this duty take a nap and or good rest/sleep before their shift begins, and then have a full sleep once their shift is over.
  • The benifit of this volunteer duty is that there are no daytime requirements meaning you may participate in as much festval activities then as you please.
