APPLY TO VOLUNTEER AT WOMAD - APPLICATIONS NOW OPEN!
Volunteers play an essential role in the operations and delivery of WOMAD, from stage runners to traffic control and zero waste superstars. In past years we have had up to 400 volunteers involved, performing duties ensuring WOMAD runs smoothly by assisting and supporting key staff during this world music, arts and dance celebration.
Volunteers get to experience the best of both worlds at the festival, doing good by giving back to the community and enjoying one of the best-loved cultural festivals on the planet! As a volunteer, you work approximately half of the festival operating hours, so there is plenty of time to dance and soak up the sounds and scenery.
Our application period is from 18 September 2023 - 23 February 2024. Applications will be assessed on an ongoing basis. Application close date may change based on numbers of applications.
