What we ask for
Enthusiasm, reliability, cooperation, patience and flexibility.
What we offer
Support, appropriate training, new friends and at least one unforgettable weekend.
Solas Festival volunteers are entitled to a free weekend ticket and a pass to the Aftershow Party. But, in return, we’ll ask you to do a shift of stewarding. These positions will usually require an average commitment of 4 hours per day, leaving plenty of time to enjoy some of the festival.
Volunteers must be at least 16 years old, and over 18 for certain roles. Some volunteer positions will require specialist skills and experience, but most will just need lots of enthusiasm, reliability and a willingness to work alongside others.
