Volunteering at DMF

Not only will you get a buzz from volunteering, you will be part of a fabulous team, and be making a difference.  Anyone can be a part of it! 


 The Dart Music Festival has been staging fantastic musical weekends since 1998  for our town and community. 

 The entire event is run by volunteers and funded by generous sponsors and donations. 

But the committee can’t run it without you!  So if you love music, love being part of a team and want to be a part of what is the best festival in town (yes we are biased!) get in touch

You could help in so many ways… 

Collector – absolutely vital to the effort, these amazing people hijack our adoring public with smiles and laughs and wring their money out of them.  You can do as many or as few shifts as you want, all help is gratefully received.  Please email sallywalley1@gmail.com

Set up and build – Although we have a crack team of builders and breakers there are always plenty of jobs to do.  If you are interested in volunteering for before or after the festival please email dmf.operations@outlook.com

Musicians parking – We have parking for our acts but sometimes drivers can’t be trusted to actually follow the signs.  This is only at our busiest times and is pretty easy….but vital! please email dmf.operations@outlook.com

Venue volunteer / Announcers (Flavel & guildhall) – Our venue managers are amazing but we always need more of them!  They meet the bands and help them with all aspects of getting into their venues and their performance. They also help the public with any of the varied things they need! Alternatively we need announcers for most venues so if you have the gift of the gab and fancy introducing some of our lovely bands please email dmf.operations@outlook.com

Working in the information hut – Over the festival our main point of contact with the public is at our information hut.  You would always be working with a member of the committee but it is fun and varied (and I am told there is sometimes cakes!).  If you think you could help with that email treasurer@dartmusicfestival.co.uk

PR liaison – In this modern world of ours we need all sorts of help with social media etc so if you fancy turning your hand to some writing or posting for us please email dmf.emilie@outlook.com

Photography – Every year we need a few official photographers who get access all areas passes in return for pictures for the use of DMF.  Please email dmf.emilie@outlook.com

Litter – Yep it isn’t glamorous but we have gloves….and litter pickers!  If you have 1/2 an hour after the last act or in the middle of the day to do a quick sweep of any of the venues we need you! please email dmf.operations@outlook.com

Fundraising – More of an ongoing commitment fundraising is a vital part of our financial planning.  Maybe you have an idea for a one off fundraiser or a great idea of something you could do to raise much needed funds?  The committee is really friendly and supportive and will help all the way.  If you fancy that email dmf.chair@outlook.com

Committee – Yeah we know committees tend to scare people!  But we are a pretty friendly bunch and we have the honour of being the current custodians of this incredible event.  If you have a skill or a willingness to help all year (well September – May, we take the summer off) then email dmf.chair@outlook.com
