Thank you for your interest in volunteering with the Adelaide Festival.

Registrations for volunteering with Adelaide Festival 2 – 18 March 2018 are open until late January.
We are seeking to fill our team of up to 200 committed, positive, people-focused volunteers to assist with a range of roles across Adelaide Writers Week, The Palais, our wonderful Music program, administration and much more!
Adelaide Festival values the time, talents and devotion of our fantastic team of volunteers. We welcome both return volunteers and those new to volunteering and volunteering with us! Our goal is to make your Adelaide Festival Volunteer experience an enjoyable one.

On top of the Festival experience and joining a team of fabulous colleagues, we have some exclusive benefits for Festival volunteers which help us say thank you.


Note: Applications to volunteer with Adelaide Festival are processed via the Festival Volunteer Network (FVN) which is an independent, not for profit service that connects volunteers to the 11 major arts festivals in South Australia that make up Festivals Adelaide. Whether you wish to volunteer at one or all of the Festivals in the network, the process is the same and eliminates the need for you to have to fill out new applications for each of these festivals.

Applications for The Lost and Found Orchestra Volunteer Performer roles are currently on hold while the creative team match current applicants to roles. Please contact our Volunteer Manager for further information!
