What memory stands out most when you think of your time at the Festival?

Walking past a stage at 10am with a crowd of people dancing like it is 10pm, when you start your day like that you’re on a festival high for the rest of the day.

Why do you volunteer for the Festival? What inspires you?

The VFMF is built on the work of volunteers and a spirit of open-mindedness, combine that with some amazing music in a breathtaking setting and it is hard not to be inspired.

What’s your favourite part of the Festival?

The sunset during the evening concerts is just magical.

What advice would you give to new volunteers?
Try and find “your” committee, that could be one that aligns with your values or interests or one with a group of people you get along with. It just becomes so much more when you find the group where you do more than just put in your hours.
