The trade hours for Krew Members are:
During show shifts: 18 work hours
Pre/post show shifts: 24 work hours
You will be charged an non-refundable impact fee of $20 per car and $100 per RV. Impact fees are collected on site. Carpooling is encouraged!
If you are confirmed as a Krew Member, You will receive a Confirmation Letter. If we are unable to add you to a Krew you will receive a Waiting List letter.
We will contact you within one month of your application submission to let you know if you have been accepted on a volunteer Krew. Thanks for your Patience! If you bought a ticket before getting confirmed for a Krew, we are unable to refund your ticket.
We are always in need of responsible Krew members. We are looking for talented, energetic, enthusiastic folks who love festivals to help maintain the high quality of this annual event. We are looking for folks with all sorts of different skills. Prior festival experience is a plus. Most festival barter Krew jobs do not require specialized skills (there are a few exceptions which are noted).
TRAINING & SCHEDULING: Training occurs at one of two group meetings at the festival site in June. Both meetings are MANDATORY. The first at the Festival General Meeting at 9 pm on Thursday, June 11, 2020 and then at individual Krew meetings. The individual Krew meetings will be scheduled by the Coordinator before or after the General Meeting. Coordinators are responsible for scheduling shifts.
Festival Krew members receive one (1) All Weekend pass to the festival (a $350 value), a staff shirt, one meal per six hour shift, and free camping in Barter Krew Kamp. Krew members who want to give more time are welcome to do so.
WHAT CAN I BE A KREW MEMBER FOR?
There are MANY different types of jobs for which we need Krew Members at the Festival, ranging from Parking Lot Crew, to Security, to Kitchen, etc. There are also many different options for WHEN you work.
BARTER KREW CODE OF ETHICS:
As a Hog Farm Hangout Krew Member: 1. I realize that I am subject to a code of ethics similar to that which binds the professionals in any field. I, like them, assume certain responsibilities & expect to account for what I do in terms of what I am expected to do. I will honor the goals, rules, and regulations of the festival. 2. I interpret “Barter Krew Member” to mean that I have been accepted as a “partner-in-service” and I expect to do my work according to standards set out by the festival organizers. I understand that the shirt (marked staff) is my uniform. I will refrain from using alcohol and/or drugs before or during my work shifts, or at any time while wearing my staff shirt. I understand that as a Krew member, I represent the Hog Farm Hangout and will act in a manner that reflects positively on the event. 3. I promise to take to my work an attitude of open mindedness, to be willing to be trained for it, & to bring to it my interest & attention. I believe my attitude toward Krew work should be professional. I believe that I have an obligation to my work, to those who direct it, to my colleagues, & to the public. Being eager to contribute all that I can to the goals of the festival, I accept this code of ethics, to be followed carefully & cheerfully.
BARTER KREW OBLIGATIONS:
Krew Members are one of the mainstays of this festival – without their dedication and effort, we could not put the Festival on each year. Each Krew Member represents the “face” of the Hog Farm Hangout and thereby is an ambassador for our organization. The Hog Farm Hangout expects that they will be enthusiastic, friendly, helpful and professional at all times during their Krew shifts. It will be important to report on time & ready to work to all shifts to which you have been assigned.
In addition, Krew Members are required to:
- Sign & return one copy of their Festival Krew Member Application/Contract/Waiver when they check in.
- Attend both of the Training Meetings held at the Festival site (Black Oak Ranch). Attendance at our General Krew meeting is mandatory for all Krew Members & indicates a Krew Member’s commitment to completing their job assignment. Individuals who miss the training meetings & do not communicate with their Area Coordinator are subject to being replaced. General Meeting is held at 9 pm Thursday, June 11, 2020 at Black Oak Ranch.
Check with Coordinator for Krew Meeting Times.
