    ABOUT MURFEST TEAM

    We refer to our MURFEST Volunteers Team as Bhakti Warriors. While the MURFEST Team primarily supports the logistical operations of the festival, more importantly, we are the spirit warriors too! We greet attendees as they arrive, help them get around, and say goodbye to them on their way home. We are the face of the festival, and without the dedicated support from the MURFEST Team, the festival simply could not take place and would lack that special something that keeps us coming back year after year.

    MURFEST Bhakti Warriors are the space holders of this great event! This is a sacred position. We are the keepers of the fire. We hold the space for the community to dance, make music and embody their truest, most authentic selves.

    MURFEST takes place over 3 days. MURFEST Bhakti Warriors give a portion of their time in exchange for entry to the festival. We will assign shifts to ensure our Volunteers get a chance to celebrate health & wellness too; dancing, stretching and making new friends.  We will ask for your shift and crew preference, but the final decision will be made by us based on our needs and your interests.

    THEN…

    Once you have submitted your application, please be patient while we review it. We will email if you have been accepted, with a link to confirm and pay your impact fee.

    We will send our first wave of acceptance emails in September, after this we continue to receive and accept applications as needed and will email as soon as possible—and yes, there are usually a few last minute spaces open last minute, so it’s worth applying.

    Please note that acceptance will not include your team, role or position. This will be confirmed and announced in our Orientation Meeting, just before the event starts and after you have paid your impact fee.

    WHEN YOU ARE CONFIRMED AND PART OF THE MURFEST TEAM…

    We will invite you to join the MURFEST Team Facebook group, so you can receive quick updates, reminders, and connect with the whole community of MURFEST Team members. Here you can organize ride shares and even meet up and get to know the team before the festival.
