Volunteer Opportunities

Each year Something Fest assembles a team of energetic and passionate volunteers to help bring our vibrant festival to life! 

If you’re interested in digital, innovation, technology, or you are just looking for an exciting opportunity to grow, we’d love for you to join our tribe!


As a volunteer, you’ll play a pivotal role in our team and have the chance to:

  • Welcome our amazing speakers and attendees
  • Assist with ‘Beyond the Stage’ activities
  • Help with way finding and navigation around the venues
  • Help field general enquiries on the day


All whilst gaining hands-on industry experience in a dynamic, fast-paced environment

Immersion: More than just volunteering.

Volunteering is great, but even the most outstanding young humans still need nurturing & guidance, and a little bit of showcasing.


Immersion by Something Fest will offer to students with a keen interest in digital, innovation and tech the opportunity to be fully immersed in our ecosystem.

Our 2024 Immersion program consists of 3 key components: Give, Get, Connect.

Give. Volunteering at Something Fest. 


Volunteering at Something Fest isn’t just about lending a hand – it’s an incredible opportunity to:

  • Gain valuable, hands-on event experience
  • Network and make new friends
  • Immerse yourself in Brisbane’s thriving digital, innovation, and tech ecosystem

Get. Attend Something Fest.


One of the most unique parts of the Something Fest volunteer program is that for every day you volunteer, we’ll reward you with a day of complimentary attendance at the festival!

Take the opportunity to network with your future colleagues, learn from the incredible speakers on stage and have a heap of fun with the activities ‘beyond the stage’.



Our Volunteer Connect web page showcases each of our volunteers including:

  • what you are studying
  • what your career goals are
  • the types of opportunities you are ideally seeking


This page will be shared with all Something Fest attendees, providing an incredibly unique and valuable opportunity to be promoted to future employers and peers.
