Volunteer at NFF this Easter

We are still looking for volunteers to be part of our fantastic #ourNFF team.
If you love music, want to support folk artists and culture or, you simply want to be surrounded with great people, then please join us. It's a brilliant way to discover the Festival and for 20 hours of your time we'll give you a season camping ticket to enjoy the other 84 hours of the Festival.
Volunteers have access to the volunteer center, discounts at our delicious food stalls, two free drinks at the volunteer party held on Monday night and the chance to become a part of our Festival family!
