Join our team of Greeter Fairy Godparents and you get the opportunity to be one of the first smiling faces welcoming your family home and blessing their journey on the pecan playa. You'll get to meet and greet (and butt wash!!) so many people and socialize, and it's a great way to get familiar with the layout of the playa and to know where all the theme camps are located!  Volunteers in this department will be checking that Burners entering the playa have a solid understanding of: our Burn principles (including but not limited to: photography policies, consent, leave no trace, etc),  having all the supplies they need to survive the experience, and understanding where they are headed (We get to show off the fancy maps and get people acquainted with Camps!!). Additionally, our department also works with other departments in Genesis (InterZone Coordinator, Parking, and Towing) to direct traffic through the Greeter's area! This is a fun department to volunteer in whether you are a fresh or seasoned burner! 

This is a high energy, fun way to volunteer and greeters are often a participant's first exposure to the principles, the land and the event. This volunteer position is so much more than hugs and dancing, greeters must be knowledgeable about all things Flipside and able to quiz / assess each participants readiness.

Sign up with your Theme Camp or a group of friends! You can sign up for a shift by clicking on the shift slot. If the shift can have a group signup, there will be a "sign up and generate group link" button. This gives you a URL that can be sent to your friends to sign up on the same shift.

Choosing a shift - some things to know

  • The gate can't be open if greeters isn't staffed and operational. You should plan on being at the greeter's station 15 minutes before your shift to check in and get oriented.
  • The first shifts of the day start at 8:45 to allow time to get everything setup, uncovered and ready to go!
  • The last shift of the day occasionally ends as late as an hour after gate closes, if there are last-minute arrivals, to make sure those last few participants are greeted and also to secure/close down the greeter's station. If you can, please, please, please sign up for these later shifts.

Early Entry

There are a few early entry shifts for Greeter's. All Wednesday and Thursday morning shifts get Wednesday Early Entry.

Tickets

You have your ticket, right? There are no free passes to Flipside - EVERYONE must buy a ticket. A sincere commitment to volunteer may encourage others to help you find one when it becomes available, however.

Most of all thank you for your time in helping to make Flipside work!!!!!!
