Description

Doune the Rabbit Hole is a music festival in the glorious ancient oak trees of the Stirlingshire countryside in Scotland. It returns this summer with an impressive line-up of global acts, national treasures and emerging local talent. The intimate and independent music and arts festival sees the likes of Levellers, Big Country, The Beat, This is the Kit, Akala, Atari Teenage Riot, Aidan Moffat & RM Hubbert and We Were Promised Jetpacks take to the stage. There will be fun workshops for everyone, a huge children’s area, arts, crafts and delicious local food, ciders and craft ales to soak up too. Plus, it’s dog friendly!

Work And Activities

e tasks will involve working on the actual physical construction and deconstruction of the event – this could be painting signs, constructing stages, marking campsites, building roads, erecting marquees, creating car parks, catering and much more. An induction and some training will be provided. Volunteering is throughout the whole day on site with good breaks for lunch etc. Volunteers will not be working throughout the festival so this is a time to enjoy the music and community at the festival, making the most of the beautiful event!
