Friends of the Festival Volunteers Opening in September 2019 for the 2020 festival
The Festival could not take place without the support of our wonderful Friends of the Festival volunteers. There are many positions available during the event so be sure to let us know your particular field of expertise or interest. Returning volunteers please email [email protected] first to indicate your willingness to return. New volunteers, please complete our online application form. Please note however that your application does not necessarily guarantee you a position and/or your first preference, as we receive many applications and vacancies are limited. Unfortunately we are unable to provide accommodation for volunteers – you will need to organise your own. Volunteers will receive a weekend pass and a free Friends of the Festival T-shirt in return for working 10 – 12 hours across 2 or more shifts. It is not possible to volunteer for a ‘half festival’ pass. For further information, please contact Robyn at [email protected] or 03 5568 2227.
