Volunteers are the friendly face of the Festival

Sign up now to join the team!

Volunteering is open to everyone aged 16 and over.

The Festival is delivered with the help of over 200 volunteers who support all of the events in the programme, and undertake tasks including:

  • Stewards
  • Backstage Crew
  • Technical Support
  • Drivers
  • Administration
  • Publicity
  • Social Media
  • Event Hosts
  • Customer Service

Volunteers join the Festival from the Milton Keynes area and beyond, and are of all ages and backgrounds. 

Motivated by being part of something extraordinary, volunteers meet new friends, have fun, gain a sense of pride and achievement, 'give back' to the city and the community, and in some cases their experience counts towards furthering their careers.

We welcome interest from people of all backgrounds and abilities. Please get in touch to discuss any requirements.

All roles at the Festival will be undertaken and managed in line with government Covid-19 guidelines, and will be adapated if there are any changes in official guidance or restrictions before or during the Festival.

“I volunteered at the Festivals in 2012 and 2014 and it was a fantastic experience. I loved the opportunity to contribute to some cutting-edge art and culture right on my doorstep."

"What a great sense of camaraderie. Everyone involved was genuinely friendly and helpful, and looked out for each other.
