be part of our gang?

Doune the Rabbit Hole relies on the generosity and dedication of hundreds of lovely volunteers each summer. Once again, we’re on the lookout for friendly, enthusiastic people, over the age of 18, to help make the magic happen. It’s a great opportunity to delve into the workings of a small, boutique festival and experience what happens behind the scenes. You can find out more about specific roles below, and hopefully, everything you ever wanted to know about volunteering is in our FAQs. For anything else, please get in touch –

There are the main areas of volunteering but other opportunities may be available in discussion with the DtRH team … 

Build and Break Crew

Possible dates on site working: Fri 6 – Thu 12 July and Mon 16 – Fri 20 July – you get Fri 13, Sat 14 and Sun 15 to enjoy the festival! (4+ days on site, if only 4 we would prefer this was Wed 11, Thu 12, Mon 16 & Tue 17 July)

Role: Working on the actual physical construction and deconstruction of the event – this could be painting signs, constructing stages, marking campsites, building roads, erecting marquees, creating car parks, catering and much more.

Weekend Crew

Possible dates on site working: Thu 12 – Mon 16 July

Volunteer orientation and supper: the evening of Thursday 12 July

Hours: up to 18 hours over the festival, no more than 6 hours a day unless you elect to do so!

Role: Working during the actual event to help it run smoothly and ensure all goes ahead as planned on the weekend itself. The roles available include helping behind the bars, stewarding, litter picking (under supervision and with PPE supplied by DTRH), driving (licence required), helping park cars (Friday mainly), helping at Box Office, Artist Liaison (hospitality for artists), Technical Backstage (helping on stage production) and more.

Street Team

In addition to the on-site roles above, we are also on the hunt for energetic Street Team members  Do you want to help promote DTRH this year? If so, you’re awesome! You’ll simply need to do the same number of hours between now and the festival as an ordinary weekend volunteer would do over the weekend – a total of 18 hours of flyering and/or postering and the chance to attend some of Scotland’s best gigs and events between now and then while on the job. This is a hotly anticipated volunteer role with limited availability so don’t delay!
