Our festival could not survive without the 400-strong team of enthusiastic volunteers who make it all happen, both during the event and over the preceding weeks. Thank you to all past volunteers for your wonderful support!
Volunteers who give nine hours or more of their time will receive a free entry ticket, but usually need to pay for camping. See Working as a volunteer for full information about what we ask you to do and the benefits we offer.
Volunteer applications for the 2018 festival open in January 2018. If you haven’t volunteered previously, you can add your email address to our mailing list and you will receive all the information you need in advance of registration opening.
Previous volunteers who would like to work in the same area as last year should contact their Area Manager now (if they haven’t already contacted you!) and pre-register for agreed shift days and times.
Important! If you plan to volunteer, or even think you might, please DO NOT buy a ticket when they go on sale in January 2018. Your online ticket purchase cannot be refunded. Early bird tickets will be on sale until 11 February, by which time you will have received confirmation of your volunteer status.
We would like to acknowledge our appreciation for Max Klubal, Founding Member, for his generous support of the Fairbridge Festival volunteers.
