Youth Beatz Seeks Volunteers

Tuesday, 09 April 2024 12:46

Youth Beatz Festival is back for 2024 and sign-ups have now opened for young people and adults to register their interest in volunteering at this year’s event.

This opportunity is specifically for people who want to support the delivery of the event over the Youth Beatz festival, including our region-wide Fringe programme that will see free events delivered across every Ward area throughout Dumfries and Galloway – and the main event days.

Volunteering roles during the main event days range from photographers to stage support, welfare to customer service, content creators to donation points collectors and more. There are also opportunities for those who would prefer to volunteer behind the scenes in the week leading up to and following the main event with a call out including people who want to give their time to physically transform the site from field to festival.

Chair of Dumfries and Galloway Council’s Communities Committee, Councillor Ian Blake, said: “In 2023 we were incredibly grateful to have over 9,300 hours of volunteering from both young people and adults. If you are thinking of signing up for Youth Beatz 2024, I would encourage you to do so. There are plenty of opportunities to suit all interests, whether this is in customer service or stage management. If you have some spare time or would like to get some volunteer experience, we’d be delighted to hear from you.”

This is the perfect opportunity for people interested in:
Gaining experience working in live events industry.
Building their skills and working as part of a motivated team to deliver an award-winning experience for young people.
Sharing their expertise and experience.
Getting more involved in their community.

Vice-Chair of Dumfries and Galloway Council’s Communities Committee, Councillor Jackie McCamon, said: “Our council is very grateful to those who choose to volunteer their time to this fantastic event that brings so much to our region. We are also delighted that we will once again be welcoming back young volunteers from across Scotland who will be participating in their Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Gold Residential through the festival.”

Sign-up is now open until 31May:
