Solas Festival couldn’t happen without volunteers.

Volunteering is the best way to get involved right at the heart of Solas. It means experiencing the festival from the inside. It gives you an opportunity to meet new people and make connections, to learn and develop skills, to do something new and different.

There is a range of different roles to suit everyone, whatever your skills or age (although unfortunately, we can’t accept applications from anyone under 16). Roles include stewarding, driving, selling tickets and merchandise, and artist hospitality. Other roles may be available depending on your experience.

What we ask for

Enthusiasm, reliability, cooperation, patience and flexibility.

Volunteers should expect to give a minimum of 12 hours of their time over the festival weekend. This normally means one four-hour shift per day and leaves you with lots of time to enjoy the festival.

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 access to the volunteer base: a cosy inside space with tea, coffee and biscuits.
