Doune the Rabbit Hole NEEDS YOU!

Volunteering is a great fun way of enjoying the festival from the inside!  We rely upon a large team of individuals who share our ethos and are committed to helping us to deliver the best possible experience of the festival.  We are looking for individuals with an interest in music, art, performance and community spirit to help us to run things smoothly and deliver the best possible experience for artists, performers and the public!

If you think you can help us in any way then please get in touch with Rachel on rachel@dounetherabbithole.co.uk

  • During the Event:

As always, we need people to help out both back and front of house during the event to make sure the festival runs smoothly.


You will need to be on site from 7pm on Thursday 21st August ’til 11am on Monday 25th August.

The following are just some of the available roles over the weekend:

  • Box Office
  • Stewards (If you’re SIA Licensed then please get in touch with jamie@dounetherabbithole.co.uk directly)
  • Stage Management
  • Volunteer Group Leader
  • Technical Crew (back stage)
  • Production Office Helpers
  • Cooks
  • Hospitality managers and assistants
  • Drivers (with vehicles!)
  • And many, many more!

Shift patterns for volunteers will vary over the Festival period. Applicants should be available for a minimum of 3 shifts during the festival. Shifts will be on a rota-basis, each shift lasting approx 6 hours.(probably less really!)

Back of House hours may vary greatly depending on the task at hand and will be managed directly by our BOH festival coordinator.

*Some positions may require a few hours overnight shifts.*

You will be expected to sign a volunteer contract with DTRH upon acceptance of your application and provide emergency contact details as well as a mobile telephone number on which we can contact you in the event of you failing to turn up for a shift.
You will also be asked to pay a £30 deposit returnable to you in full at the end of your contract with us.

DTRH will provide volunteers helping during the event with:

  • One meal per shift and refreshments.
  • Free access to Doune the Rabbit Hole Festival arena and camping facilities (while not on shift).
  • A variety of training opportunities.
  • A LOT of fun making new friends, meeting people and helping the event run smoothly!


If you have any other general questions about volunteering for the festival, please contact rachel@dounetherabbithole.co.uk.

 We look forward to hearing from you!
