Each year we’ve asked hundreds of friends and fans to help put on Maha, and you’ve answered the call. That’s pretty incredible, because without you, the festival wouldn’t be possible.

Volunteer registration for 2022 will open in the spring. Check back here!

How to Volunteer at Maha

Know The Perks

A free ticket to the festival

A Maha volunteer T-shirt, highly coveted and oh-so fashionable

Early access to next year’s volunteer shifts, so you can grab the one you want

An exclusive invite to next year’s Lineup Announcement Party for Volunteers

All the warm-and-fuzzies knowing you’ve helped a local nonprofit bring thousands of people together to have a freaking wonderful time

Register in Advance

Our volunteer platform, VolunteerLocal, makes everything automatic and easy: signing up and selecting your shift, changing your shift, or canceling your shift can all be done online until the portal closes a few days before the events start. After that, you’ll need to contact us directly at volunteer@mahafestival.com to make changes or cancel your registration. 

Throughout the summer you’ll receive important shift information via email, so make sure you open and read messages from Maha! Pro tip: avoid using a work or school email address as our rad “festival” messages can end up in spam filters. You can also add volunteer@mahafestival.com and info@mahafestival.com to your address book to ensure you get the memos.
