Although the festival runs from the evening of 30th August until the early hours of the 4th September, we require Dimensions volunteers to help between 28th August and 4th September. Most departments are split into SHIFT GROUPS to enable Volunteers to plan their trip before their specific shifts are sent out in August.

Shift Group B: Thursday 31st August – Sunday 3rd September

Shift Group C: Friday 1st September – Monday 4th September

Departments without a Shift Group: Wednesday 30th August – Monday 4th September

Please note, all volunteers are required to arrive on-site and be issued with their wristband/s the day BEFORE their first shift.

Volunteer positions are only confirmed once you have purchased your volunteer deposit. Volunteers who complete all their shifts will have their deposits refunded to them by Saturday 30th September 2017. Please note, booking fees are non-refundable.
