Festival set-up and pack-down team

Register to be a festival set-up and pack-down team volunteer

The set-up and pack-down team supports the festival team to set up the festival site in the few days before the festival and pack down the site in the few days after the festival.

We are looking for people who are organised and have an eye for detail.

This is a great option if you want to be involved and want to enjoy the whole festival start to finish, as you will work before or after the event.


There are indoor, air-conditioned roles and outdoor, active roles available in this team.

Indoor roles will have a chair available for most of the time and some can be seated at all times.

Outdoor roles require you to move around the festival site and in some cases include reaching and lifting.

It will require you to interact with people and support them in their roles.


Indoor roles
