Be a Volunteer

Volunteer Applications open March 1st at 10:00 a.m.

Don't just go to Blues & Brews, be a part of it! Volunteering is a great way to earn a 3-Day Pass, meet new friends, get a free festival t-shirt and be a part of the show! All you have to do is fill out the application and choose the shifts and department that you'd like to join (box office, customs, park operations). 


  • All Volunteers MUST submit an application below to be considered for a Volunteer Position. If you are accepted as a volunteer, you will be assigned two shifts in exchange for a 3-Day festival pass, and a festival staff t-shirt. We typically assign you one morning shift and one afternoon or evening shift.
  • Please note that Camping and Juke Joint passes are not included. If you are volunteering and want to camp during the festival, you will need to purchase a camping pass. Camping does SELL OUT.
  • You must be 18 or older to apply.


A deposit is required. This deposit is equal to the full cost of a 3-Day festival pass, which you will receive as an accepted volunteer. This deposit allows us to charge you for that 3-Day pass if you fail to satisfactorily complete your scheduled shifts (refer to the 'I Agree' section on the volunteer application for the complete listing of circumstances that would require us to retain your deposit). We accept only debit/credit cards for deposits. Please note that we do not charge your debit or credit card unless you are assigned as a volunteer and you fail to satisfactorily complete your scheduled shifts. The application process alone does not validate or jeopardize your deposit.

Application Deadline

We accept volunteer applications until all positions are filled. Please note that we fill volunteer positions on a first-come, first-serve basis, so the earlier you submit your application the better your chances of obtaining the position you prefer.

Acceptance Notice

Acceptance notice begins in the early summer and thanks for your interest in volunteering at this year's Telluride Blues & Brews Festival!
