TEST REGION Riverboats Music Festival


Riverboats is on the look-out for enthusiastic, music-loving volunteers to join us over the Festival weekend.

The arrangement is simple – in return for one four-hour volunteer shift we’ll give you a three-day, $155 weekend ticket. Jobs may involve serving our thirsty festival-goers behind the bar, selling tickets or merchandise, moving stock and generally keeping the place humming. You’ll be a busy bee for a few hours, but after that it’s all fun and games – and we promise you’ll enjoy the experience too!

To register we need you to be over 18 and for bar shifts you’ll also need to hold a current Victorian RSA certificate – sound doable? Fill out your details below and we'll be in touch.

Successful applicants will be advised via email in mid-December and rosters will be sent out in January.
