Simmer Down Festival 2017 is looking for volunteers to help make sure the festival runs smoothly and everyone has a great time. The Reggae and World Music festival is free and open to all, and has a range of acts across two stages and a belly-bursting variety of food to taste. This year, Simmer Down Festival will be headlined by internationally acclaimed Jamaican Reggae artist Freddie McGregor, so is expecting a large number of people to attend.

Volunteer!
