Volunteers sought for Naas music festival

It takes place over July 5-7

The Forever Young festival is seeking volunteers  for the event which takes place at Palmerstown House in Naas from July 5 to July 7

The festival will  run by a charity organisation and it aims to raise money for a new initiative, to set up new veterinary treatment centres across Ireland in a bid to help animals in crisis.

It’s Ireland’s very first 80’s festival and will feature 80’s icons including The Human League, Holly Johnson, Level 42, Kim Wilde, Jimmy Somerville, Bonnie Tyler and many others. The event dates and times are: Friday,  July 5 from 5pm till 11pm; Saturday, July 6 from 12pm till 11pm and Sunday, July 7 from 12pm till 11PM.

Those interested are asked to  carefully read and answer all sections clearly. The age policy for volunteering at the festival is 18 years plus.

The organisers are seeking as many people as possible to work for 3 days and the role titles are festival stewards, green team members, operations team members as well as team leaders and volunteer support team members.

Volunteers must be available to arrive at the festival site by 10am on the Friday for a briefing.

Shifts are 6 or 8 hours long. Volunteers are expected to work 16 to 18 hours over the weekend in exchange for a 3 day ticket to the festival. This will take the form of 3 x 6 hour shifts or 2 x 8 hour shifts.
