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... 


Due to the current COVID-19 situation:

We will decide on July 31 whether or not to go ahead with planning for the 2021 festival.
If we decide to go ahead, performer applications will open on August 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.


If you are keen to get involved, email or text 0409 400 281


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.
