Scotland’s newest music festival will be coming to Camperdown Park on the 12th and 13th of August 2017. Carnival Fifty Six is an annual festival held on the 56° North grid line in Dundee. Rudimental, The Fratellis, Mark Ronson, Clean Bandit & Sacha now added to the line up for this year.

The great news for Festaff volunteers is that they can camp on site for the weekend - no need to drive home after headliners - just slide into your sleeping bag.....and hey presto your up in posistion to fully enjoy the next day.

The festival boasts a phenomenal line-up over the weekend, celebrating music, comedy and culture. The stages and tents will be home to some of music’s biggest names, comedians that make you cry lol’ing, and lots of local talent showcasing their brilliant skills.

Please note: once on site at Carnival 56 you are required to be on volunteer shift where and when required by the Music Festival promoter and Festaff management. You will be advised as far as possible of volunteer shift patterns, etc. in advance of the music festival but we cannot be 100% accurate of all that is required until on site. Please bear this in mind.

You must plan and make your own way to and from the event. Free staff car park passes are issued on arrival.
