Get Involved

Newstead Live is a community event managed by volunteers. The festival relies on the local community and folk giving their time to make it happen. There are ways to get involved... 


Please check back in early 2021 to find out how things might run for 2022. In the normal course of events, performer applications would open on June 1.


Volunteers are the backbone of festivals like Newstead Live. There are a range of tasks needed, including door attendants, stage managers, cleaners, MC's and reception staff. For a total of about 8 hours volunteering over the duration of the festival, you will earn yourself a free weekend ticket.

Accomodation Hosts

The festival relies on the generosity of local folk to host some of our performers over the festival weekend. If you are a local resident and have a space room or home to offer, we would love to hear from you.  

Please register your interest in hosting a performer.
