Help Us and Have Fun! – Music Festival Volunteers


Will you help us put the fun back into fundraising this summer?  

Are you ready to roll with Liam Gallagher at Malahide Castle* in June,  break free with Queen at Marlay Park in July or salute summer’s end at Electric Picnic

New Talent. Old Legends –  we got them all covered with 13 nights of Irish gigs  & 2 long weekends in London at Finsbury Park in June or at Gunnersbury in July.

Volunteer with the Social Democrats to staff the bars at these festivals with our partner the Workers Beer Company. Free transport, camping facilities & other perks are provided to all volunteers along with good tunes & a great time. And the SocDems get a donation of your earnings for your hours worked. We’re inviting all supporters and members to volunteer with us – you don’t have to be a party member.

Last year many of our volunteers worked just one or two gigs, but we also had a few hardcore funsters who did nearly all the gigs.

“People think that I completed 84 hours with the Workers Beer Company out of some dedication to the Party. I did it because it was the source of some seriously good craic and has given me some new lifelong friendships. I also got to see a whole lot of bands, FOR FREE”  Jan Bosch, Champion Fundraiser

Whether you want to do one gig or every gig, we would be delighted to have you on board as part of our family of fun.  Every extra volunteer make a difference.
