Midsumma Festival is a volunteer-fuelled organisation that wouldn't exist without the contribution from individuals within our community. Every volunteer is an ambassador for Midsumma Festival: enthusiastic, friendly, helpful and professional.

We are seeking volunteers to work throughout the upcoming festival, running from 19 January to 10 February 2019 in Melbourne and surrounding suburbs. Volunteers work on our two signature events Midsumma Carnival in Melbourne on Sunday 20 January and Midsumma Pride March in St Kilda on Sunday 3 February, as well as a suite of smaller cultural events throughout the festival.

If you volunteer, we will say thank you by providing you with a Midsumma t-shirt, water bottle and tote bag as well as festival accreditation that gets you last minute free entry into selected Midsumma shows, a 10% discount at the Midsumma Festival Bar at The Coopers Malthouse and entry into the VIP Bar at Midsumma Carnival (if you're not working)... and on the last night of the festival we throw a big Thank You party where you get to mingle with volunteers, VIPs and artists.

If you'd like to volunteer, please check out the Volunteer Roles and Volunteer Agreement below then head to Volunteer Registration to start the ball rolling.

If you would like to assist throughout the year in the Midsumma Office or with Midsumma Technology (website, social media, office network), we'd especially love to hear from you - you can phone us on 03 9296 6600 or email [email protected].
