Black Deer Volunteers

Hats off to our amazing 2018 team of volunteers, you really did play a huge part in making it a festival weekend to remember for all.
Huge congratulations and thanks to all involved.
If you’d like to be a part of our 2019 team of volunteers, then you can now register your interest, here.

So, why should you join Black Deer as a volunteer?


To get some event experience under your belt – to help with those career plans of yours.
To meet new, like-minded people.
To be welcomed into the Black Deer community during its early days. Playing an important part in its growth.
Finally. And importantly. By sharing your valuable time for free with us, you’ll get: Free entry (if all shifts are completed), free parking, free crew camping, access to free crew showers, a free meal for each completed shift.
