Crew For A Day

Want to see what it's like to be part of the crew at The Gathering? Try it for one day with CFAD.

Could you see yourself applying for crew at next years The Gathering? Are you wondering what all those people running around in their crew sweaters are doing? Would you like to experience TG..."behind the scenes"?

Then Crew For A Day, or CFAD for short, is the thing for you.

As Crew For A Day you will get the opportunity to experience what it’s like to work as a volunteer at The Gathering. You will be joining one of the shifts in the crew you wish for, and there you will get to learn more about what this crew do and how they work. If you wish to apply for Crew the following year, having been in CFAD is a huge advantage. 

To apply for CFAD you need to be a participant at The Gathering, and in certain crews (Security:Security and Security:Medic) you need to be at least 18 years old. Furthermore, you can not have previously worked as CFAD or crew at The Gathering. 

We would like you to write a few words about the following points in the application:

  1. In order of priority, which three crews you would like to be CFAD in
  2. Why you are applying to these crews in particular
  3. Who are you?
  4. Some crews would like you to answer some extra questions. You can view them here


We have a limited number of spots, so a well written application will increase your chances.

The crews that accepts CFAD this year are:

  • Event:Game
  • Event:BroadcastUnit
  • Event:Arena
  • Security:Medic
  • Security:Security
  • Info:Desk
  • Info:Content
  • Tech:Support
  • Core:Logistics
  • Core:CrewCare


A couple of these crews wants to know if you are able to work before or after the party. If you say yes to this, this will be the day you are CFAD. Unfortunately we cannot give you one day during the party and one day before or after. This is because we would like to give as many as possible the opportunity to have their day.
