Peats Ridge Festival calls out for event volunteers

The three day New Years camping escape, Peats Ridge Festival has recently sent a shout-out to anyone looking to kick start a career in events and promotions by working on one of summer’s biggest festivals.

Now in its eighth  year, the Peats Ridge Festival has become one of the most eagerly awaited events of the year

With tons of different volunteer roles up for grabs, the packdown crew work will be expected to work for seven and a half days restoring Glenworth Valley to its pre-festival beauty while making new friends and enjoying evening entertainment each day.

As an incentive, the crew will enjoy a full week of camping after the festival to relax and unwind after the three days and a ticket to Peats Ridge in 2012, as well as receive an invite to the staff party in Sydney.

Those with a keen eye for style can join the decor crew and be an integral part of designing the feel of the festival or join the green team and be an ambassador for sustainability. Or for the stronger ones out there why not consider being a part of the set up and construction crews and help build the festival – one tee pee at a time.

Peats Ridge is also on the lookout for Masterchefs to help feed the masses and man the various kitchens throughout the festival site.

Festivalists at Peats Ridge Festival

Music lovers will have their chance to score a front row seat at the three day music and arts extravaganza and see huge acts like Gotye, Xavier Rudd, The Stanton Warriors and The Dum Dum Girls, all for free.

“With shifts at the Festival lasting only five to six hours each there is still be plenty of time for volunteers to soak up the atmosphere and check out some great acts. They can even nominate when they’d like to do their shifts so they can plan around what they want to see over the three days” said Matt Grant, festival director.

Now in its eighth year representing some of the brightest of Australian and international music acts, Peats Ridge is staged at Glenworth Valley, just  an hour’s drive from Sydney and held between 29 December-1 January.
