As a volunteer at Lost Village, you will be expected to pay a deposit, which will be equal to the full ticket price. Once you complete all assigned shifts and to a standard that is expected, your full deposit will be returned to you after the festival. Please be aware that if you miss any part or full shift your deposit will not be returned.
