Our festival is voluntary run with a committed team working to get the festival to where it needs to be on the lead up, but during the festival we need more volunteers. We love to recognise those who volunteer for us and have had many volunteers return year on year because they've loved it so much. 

If you're interested in getting some experience at a festival and would like to spend a weekend with our team, then please send us an email to team@highpeakindie.com, letting us know which area you're most keen to work in, where you're based and why you'd love to volunteer at our festival.

Get ready to meet new people, make friends and start creating memories that will last a lifetime.
