USEFUL INFO

Preparation
Wonderfruit is a 24-hour festival and shifts will be apportioned throughout the day and night. Staff are required to arrive for work punctually, well rested, sober and prepared for the assigned task and the weather.

Food
Volunteers are expected to arrive for their shift fed and encouraged to come armed with snacks and water. It is very important to leave a positive impression on all Wonderfruit guests and staying well ­fuelled is crucial.

One meal will be provided per 6-hour shift and two meals will be provided for a 12­-hour shift, as well as plenty of water re­fills. We can only accommodate standard meat or vegetarian meals and our kitchen cannot guarantee vegan or wheat/gluten-free meals. Volunteers are responsible for their own on­-shift snacks and all off-­duty meals.

Accommodation
Shared camping accommodation will be provided for volunteers on site. If you volunteer pre-event and camping is not available, shared hotel/dorm facilities will be provided.

What to wear
The weather in Thailand in December can fluctuate and it’s essential to prepare for weather contingencies from scorching midday heat, cooler nighttime temperatures and even the possibility of rain. Waterproofs, extra layers, sunscreen, sun hat and bug spray are all useful essentials.

What are the shifts like?
Pre-event, volunteers will work a minimum of 24 total hours divided into four (4) 6-hour shifts between 1 and 11 December 2019. Plan to arrive 30 minutes prior to each assigned shift. All pre-festival volunteers will be done with their work requirements before the festival begins. These positions are limited and will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. During the festival, (12-16 December) volunteers will work a minimum of 18 total hours divided into three (3) 6-hour shifts and should also plan to arrive 30 minutes prior to each assigned shift. All during-festival volunteers will work at least one morning shift and one late night shift to ensure that everyone works equal time and that schedules are balanced. Shifts are subject to change.

FAQs

Where will I be working? Can I choose where I will be placed?
Shifts in each department are based on placement considerations. Additional shifts may open up closer to the festival if/when someone cancels.

Why do I have to pay a deposit?
We want to provide you with a valuable, worthwhile experience. In order to plan an awesome experience, we take a deposit to ensure that volunteers will show up on time and do the jobs that they agreed to do. If you show up on time, follow the rules, and work diligently on the tasks assigned to you, your deposit will be returned.

My bestie is also volunteering. Can you coordinate our shifts?
When you and your friend fill out your applications, be sure to indicate each other’s names. Keep in mind that with so many volunteers and many varied needs, we cannot guarantee that you will share assignments with your friends, but we will certainly try.

When do I show up for my shift?
Please arrive 30 minutes before your assigned volunteer shift begins and be ready to work. As we get closer to the event, additional details will be sent about checking in for your shifts.

What if I have to cancel?
If you need to cancel, be sure to do so via email to volunteer@wonderfruit.co by October 30, 2019

How can I ensure that I get on my preferred volunteer crew?
There are no guarantees of placements. If you have special skills that would make you a better fit for a certain crew, please note that on the application. We appreciate your flexibility and willingness to lend a helping hand.

Is transportation or accommodation provided?
No. All volunteers are responsible for their own transportation to and from the festival. There is shared on-site camping provided for volunteers.

I can’t commit to be a fully-fledged volunteer, but I’d still like to help out for a few hours. Can I do that?
We appreciate the offer, but for the sake of continuity we need volunteers who can commit to working 18 hours.
