Your Role as a LEAF WeX

How early/late do WeXs have to work?

Before and after the Festival you can expect to work starting at 9am up to 6pm. During the Festival, shifts begin as early as 7:30am and end as late as 2am. 

Can WeXs request certain shifts?

Yes. On the application form you can identify your preference for job areas and tell us what shift times work best for you. We will work as hard as we can to make sure everyone gets a shift they will enjoy. The sooner you send in your application the more likely you will get the shifts that you have requested.

How do I know when to work?

You will be notified whether you are working prior to, during, or following the festival when you receive your confirmation email (the one with your ticket). We also send out a copy (subject to change) of the WeX schedule ahead of time. If you are working prior to -OR- following the festival your confirmation email will also let you know which day and where to go. If you are working during the festival you will receive your final schedule upon checking in with the WeX Team at the Boathouse after you arrive at the festival. Please do not try to change your shifts. We work around your availability and do our best to meet your requests. Coordinating nearly 500 WeXs twice a year is a considerable task and sticking with your original shift helps the festival run smoothly. If for some reason you MUST change your shift please notify us as soon as possible at WeX@theLEAF.org and we will do our best to work with you.

When do WeXs get their work schedule?

A copy of your WeX schedule will be emailed to you. When you receive it will depend on when you apply, however, they begin going out in March for May Festival and August for October Festival. Final schedules will be available upon arrival. Typically you receive a copy within 2 weeks of your confirmation once they start being sent out. Please do not call the office with schedule questions; you can email WeX@theLEAF.org

What are the different jobs?

We need strong people for Set Up, Tear Down and Clean Up; good hosts for VIP and Concessions; safe drivers for our Zoom Team; and all around LEAF lovers to work in all the venues on the Festival grounds. For more detailed information, please review WeX Roles & Opportunities.

Where do I park?

WeXs park in general parking Gate 6 (The Moon) unless they have purchased a Vehicle Camping Permit or are a LEAF Member that receives VIP Parking.

When do I need to be there?

Please plan to be on-site with enough time to check-in with the WeX Team 15 minutes prior to the start time of your first shift. If you need to set up your campsite, cabin, etc. please arrive an hour and a half before your shift begins—Keep in  mind that NO camp site can be set up BEFORE 4:00pm on Thursday. Please indicate what time you will be ready to work on your application.

How and where do I check in?

Your check in process is in two parts:

  1. First, WeXs will go through Drive Thru Check-In at the Owen Pool (Drive Thru Check-In times are:  Thurs: 6:00-10pm, Fri: 9am-11pm, Sat: 9am-11pm. Do not come early–there is no temporary/holding lot. Do not come late–the gates close) *Please Thursday check-in and arrival is ONLY for Plus and Star WeXs. Here you will check in your ticket & get your parking pass. Parking $10 per car at drive-thru and in advance online. 
  2. Once you are parked, drop off your camping gear, and come to WeX Headquarters to check in with the WeX Team. Here you will get your schedule card and information pertaining to your shifts.

*Please Note:*  If you have a shift outside the normal festival hours, you will be told where to go to check-in in your confirmation email.

How do I get my wristband for admission to the Festival?

When you check in at the Drive-Thru Check-In you receive your wristband for admission to the Festival. (See previous question for further details.)

Who is in charge of WeXs?

The WeX staff is made up of LEAF Staff. Throughout the year we plan for each Festival, coordinate meetings for our WeX Team to set policy, etc. Our most intense period of work is one month prior to the Festival and the month of the Festival itself. During the Festival we will be in and out of the WeX Headquarters. Please do not hesitate to find us should any problems arise.

Can my child accompany me on my shift?

Unfortunately, no. It is important you are focused first on your WeX work and are fully present during your shift. We request that you make childcare arrangements for the times you will be on shift. Childcare is available at the Festival in Elfhaven ($).

Can I bring my dog?

Unfortunately, no. It is for the safety of all festival patrons, WeXs, staff and performers. 

When are deposits cashed?

  • You don’t turn in your WeX card.
  • You turn in your WeX card without sufficient signatures from you shift supervisor(s) for EACH and ALL SHIFTS.  
  • You turn in your WeX card with bogus signatures.
  • You don’t show up to the festival.

Turn in your signed WeX card once you have completed your shifts.  If you do not drop off your card at WeX Headquarters before you leave the festival you must send us your signed work card! You can send it in the mail–within ONE WEEK (arrive by the following Sunday’s mail)–or you can send us an email with it scanned as an attachment. All DEPOSIT CHECKS will be torn up after we receive your signed card and successful completion of your shifts according to our WeX Policy. 

What if my availability changes?

Please email as soon as you know there is a change in your schedule. We appreciate your timeliness on this issue, as your shift is very important and we will have to work to find someone to fill it. 

THANKS for WeXing AND taking the time to read!  We hope we answered all of your questions, if not please email WeX@theLEAF.org. See you at LEAF!
