Be an Electronic Producer

In partnership with Victorian not-for-profit youth music organisation, The Push, Grampians Music Festival (GMF) presents an opportunity for emerging electronic producers from regional Victoria to headline the opening night of GMF 2020. Applications open later this year. Keep an eye on our Facebook for more details.

Be a DJ

If you’re a whizz on the decks and live in regional Victoria, you need to enter our DJ comp! If you win, you’ll be our resident DJ for the weekend, entertaining our crowds in between acts and kicking off the festival Sunday with a one hour set. Applications open later this year. Keep an eye on our Facebook for more details.

Be a volunteer

Want to share your gorgeous personality with us and help make the festival run? We have a number of volunteer roles available, during setup, the event and pack down.

To be eligible, you must first be available over the festival dates or during set up and/or pack down – this is REALLY important because last minute cancellations make things really difficult.

In exchange for working two x 4 hour shifts, you can earn yourself a free festival ticket.

Join our Regional Youth Mentorship Program

Applications for the 2020 Regional Youth Mentorship Program is now open!

Are you aged between 17 and 21 and want to gain hands-on experience at a music festival, right here in your own backyard? If the answer’s yes, the Grampians Music Festival Youth Mentorship Program is for you. 

The program is a unique opportunity to get involved in a really exciting event and gain practical festival experience that you can put on your resume. The successful applicant will work closely with the GMF Director, CFO and other staff in the months leading up to the festival, and also work over the festival weekend helping with all facets of the event’s management.

The mentorship program runs from 1 November 2019 and finishes on the last day of festival pack down. Applicants must be available to attend fortnightly meetings, and be able to work every day on site at the festival.

Become a GMF Promotion Partner

  • Are you the person who rallies your crew and plans their calendars?
  • Can you talk the talk and have the gift of the gab?
  • Do you LOVE GMF and want to share it’s awesomeness with all your friends?

You could become one of our Promotion Partners and earn yourself some $$$ and score a free ticket to boot!

So what’s it all about? We’ll send you hard copy tickets and 10 GMF posters where you can enter your details. To be eligible for a free ticket, you must put up all 10 of your posters and sell at least 5 hard copy tickets. For every ticket you sell, you will also make a $10 commission. The more tickets you sell, the more you can earn yourself! Remember to collect the money for your tickets to return to GMF.
