The UK’s premier experimental music and art festival – Supersonic – returns 22nd – 24th June 2018 and there are plenty of opportunities to get involved as a volunteer.

Supersonic has secured its experimental reputation with over 14 years of consistently innovative and explosive concoctions of visual installations, films, exhibitions and music. Guaranteed to open your eyes and ears to music and art outside the predictable genre labels and familiar performance spaces.

You will be part of an ever growing, friendly community of music and art lovers helping to maintain the values of bringing the extraordinary to curious audiences in an all inclusive way. This is will be an invaluable experience into how a festival runs but not only that, you’ll be contributing to something truly Superspecial whilst making friends along the way!

We need a dedicated team of volunteers to help deliver Supersonic over the festival weekend (22nd – 24th June) and also in the run up to the festival (early June onwards).

We would like every volunteer to commit to 15 hours over the weekend

Volunteers must be over 18 years old

This year we are on the lookout for people for the following roles:

  • Artist Liason/Box Office
  • Hospitality/Site Set up
  • Merch/Promotion




Supersonic Festival 2018 gratefully acknowledges the generous support of our funders and sponsors
