Free Ticket, Free Meals, Discounted Camping & Lovely Yellow Tabards – Sign up to Volunteer!

All Outlook Festival Volunteers need to be on site and available to work between Wednesday 3rd September and Monday 9th September 27th. However these dates may vary depending on the shifts that you choose.
Volunteers will be asked to pay a £140 deposit (+£12.50 booking fee) which will be refunded by 31st October 2014, on the successful completion of 3 x 6-8/hour shifts.
*NEW* Pay one deposit and volunteer for both festivals!
The volunteer package includes:
- Free festival ticket
- x1 Food token per shift
- x4 Nights refunded camping (refunded with deposit)
- x3 Shifts (6-8hours)
- Deposit = £140.00
Volunteers are an integral part of the festival, and help create a safe, positive environment and the community atmosphere our festivals are famous for.
Volunteering at festivals is a great way to party on a budget, make new friends, and gain valuable work experience. We aim to give our all volunteers the opportunity to take as much away from experience as they want. Many return year after year; and some have even become part of the team running the festival!
For those of you trying to get a foothold into the events industry, you can apply for the Management Support Team (MST). In return for their hard work assisting mangers in all areas of the festival, these onsite interns get expenses paid (hands on) work experience placements onsite in Croatia.
When you book through the volunteering system, those of you opting to camp will have 4 nights (£42) of your camping refunded along with your deposit.
You will receive one meal token per shift.
If you would like to be a part of Outlook 2014 and think you fit the bill, please fill out the online application and apply for the events you want to work at.
The closing date for the initial round of volunteer applications is Friday 20th June 2014, with a deadline for final deposit payments to be made by 27th June 2014. Please note that applications may re-open after this date, however you will not be able to choose the role you want to work in.

Outlook Roll Call (#outlookrollcall) is a way we can interact more closely with fans of the festival in advance of this years event and also post-festival so that we can improve on things for next year.
We’re also using this platform to give away prizes! In order to get the party started early we’ve lined up some amazing prizes to give to the people who care most about our festival.

Would you like to display your artwork to 15,000 people in and around an abandoned fort in Croatia? Outlook and Dimensions Festivals are looking for powerful creative minds to showcase their work at this year’s festivals and bring Fort Punta Christo alive over 2 weekends from the 27th August – 7th September.
Fort Punta Christo and it’s surrounding forest laden peninsula is perhaps one of the most amazing festival location ever imagined; an abandoned fort built in the 1800’s placed within a lost world. Surrounded by the crystal clear Adriatic Sea reflecting a pristine sky during the day and when the sun sets and the sound systems begin to quake…the festival turns into a different beast!
Outlook Festival is Europe’s largest sound system cultural festival and we’re constantly evolving. Held in a 200 year old abandoned Fort in Pula in the stunning region of Istria, Croatia. Outlook is at the forefront of bass driven music, featuring some of the biggest names from the most vibrant and cutting edge dance scenes around.
BRIEF: Visualising sound & movement.
Investigate the sounds of the festivals; how we experience, feel and interact with music. The brief presents you with a chance to visually express dance music and the emotions awakened by soundsystem culture.
We are looking for a wide range of innovative visual artists and creative minds to showcase their work and be a part of this year’s festivals. In return we offer you a unique creative atmosphere to realise your ideas.
Before submitting your application take a moment to consider – how your piece can be engaged with and it’s use within the festival.

-To capture festivalgoers’ imagination and accentuate the natural beauty of the festival site.
- Consider text and image
- Use whatever methods and media you consider appropriate to convey your solution.
