Pre-event Volunteering Roles

Farmer’s Market Event Promo:

If you can vouch for our awesome festival, then we would love you on our team to help promote the festival outside the Farmer’s Market in the few weekends leading up to the festival. If you are energetic, enthusiastic and just love talking to people, then this is the role for you!

If you complete 6 hours as a Pre-Event Volunteer, you will be rewarded with free entry to the festival.

Event Pack In Assistants:

These volunteers are not to be messed with! They are energetic, enthusiastic and love getting their hands dirty. They will be the crew that are working during the build up to the big day by assisting us to set up the entire festival. If you think you have what it takes and want a workout that is engaging and fun, this is the role you are perfect for!

If you complete 6 hours as a Pre-Event Volunteer, you will be rewarded with free entry to the festival.

On the day Volunteer Roles

Event General Assistants:

Fancy yourself as a bit of an all-rounder? Then look no further, this is the role for you! These volunteers are adaptable and love just getting stuck in whether is needed. They get a taster of various roles and get to experience a sample of event management, as well as meeting the people in our great team.

While you are moving around you can use your festival credit to indulge in the delicious food on offer.

Event Entrance Assistants:

If your friends describe you as loud, enthusiastic, energetic and an all-round hype human then we have the perfect volunteer role for you! This crew will be the face of the festival on the day and welcome all the beer and food enthusiasts as they arrive! We need fun and excitement at the front line – think you can bring that to the table, then we want you!

We obviously can’t expect you to have all this energy without the proper fuel! Each volunteer will receive credit to spend as you wish on food at the festival when you have your break once the rush slows down!

Event Pack Out Assistants:

Similar to the Event Pack In Assistants but in reverse! If you are energetic, enthusiastic and love getting your hands dirty, then we would love your help in finishing the final pack out once the festival has come to a close.

If you complete 6 hours as an Events Pack Out Assistant, you will be rewarded with free entry to one of the Orientation gigs in the new year. Nice!


Not only will volunteering at the DCBFF be a whole heap of fun it will also be an experience of a lifetime! Get some on the ground knowledge of events and join our amazing team!
