Welcome to Onsite Work Exchange (WE)

Thank you for your interest Onsite Work Exchange (WE)!  We’re honored and humbled by our selfless family. So, what is WE? Our WE program is for those interested in holding sacred spaces, maintaining the flow and function, and being a co-creator of Shakti Fest.  Our events would not be possible without you.  It is because of volunteers that thousands of people are enabled to come play, practice, heal, and discover true union (yoga) with themselves and others.

This program is particularly useful to those with financial challenges, as a festival ticket is provided free of charge in exchange for your service, as is free camping. Many of our previous onsitve WEs return as paying participants, while some have transitioned into staff.


There are 2 levels of Seva (service):


Sevas volunteer 4-6 hours service per day during the festival. This may include work in the yoga halls, staff kitchen, with our green team, and many other areas. There are some available shifts before and/or after the festival.

*Free entrance and camping.

Maha Seva

Maha Sevas volunteer 8 hours service per day during the festival.  These are typically people with previous Seva experience, however there may be exceptions.  Maha Sevas work in similar positions as Sevas. There are some available shifts before and/or after the festival.

*Free entrance, camping, and 2 vegetarian meals (breakfast and dinner) from onsite ktichen.

Positions are NOW open for Shakti Fest Set-up & Breakdown Crew!

Come early or stay late, great opportunity to be free during the festival while playing a very significant role.
