Volunteer Roles

Cygnet Folk Festival Volunteer Roles

The Festival's fantastic reputation rests on our enthusiastic, resourceful, friendly volunteers: some come back to help year after year and their experience and loyalty is inspiring. Others just happen to be coming down to Tassie or down from Hobart and bring new energy, talents and experience from other events. Everyone's contribution is valuable! 

Volunteering for 12 hours or more before or during the festival means you receive a free festival pass, with camping if required, plus benefits such as access to the Volunteer Green Room, the Sunday night cabaret and entry to special pre and post festival events.
