The moment has arrived!

We know that everyone is excited for the prospect of returning to festival life after a long year of isolation. Our community health and safety is of the utmost importance to us as we look towards the best way to host an event!

Here’s what we need from you:

Volunteer for the
Production Leadership Team (PLT)

YOUtopia is all about YOU and requires an exceptional team of volunteers to make it all happen. We are looking for seasoned community members that are interested in creating a YOUtopia for 2021 that keeps health and safety a priority. The PLT will need to be adaptive and resilient as we all navigate the complexities of hosting a large in-person event in California.

The PLT is the core of all artistic decisions at YOUtopia. The art theme, soundscape, theme camp placement, volunteer SWAG, Commissary menu, and how many Kubotas are allocated to each department are all up to you!

Collaborate with the Board of Directors (BoD) to determine the best way to host an event: in-person, socially distant, drive-thru, virtual, etc. This will include planning your budget and big decisions that require legal oversight. Nothing is set in stone, but we need a PLT that is determined to succeed!

Our Timeline:

  • April – Recruit PLT
  • May – PLT Feasibility Study for a YOUtopia 2021
  • June 1st – Cut-off for an October 2021 in-person event decision
  • June – Department Lead Recruitment

Does this sound like YOU?!
Join the team!

Complete the
Community Survey

The BoD has put together the following survey for the community to gauge the appetite for an event and its nature (in-person only, drive-thru, virtual, etc.) Your input means everything to us, so please take this opportunity to tell us what’s on your mind.

We thank you all for supporting this process and your continued interest in making YOUtopia unforgettable. We will be eagerly reviewing applications for PLT and look forward to all of the community feedback!
