FRIENDS OF THE FESTIVAL TERMS, CONDITIONS AND APPLICATION
The Anglesea Music Festival 2010 and 2011 saw the coming together of many wonderful individuals who became the AMF 'Friends of the Festival'
Without these volunteers there would be no festival... so on behalf of the festival director Karren Stoneham, the executive committee, the artists and festival goers a HUGE THANK YOU goes out to all of our volunteers!!! We hope you will join us again in 2012!!!
How it worksSplit into three groups:
THE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE
Responsible for the Creation, Development, Co-ordination, & Running of EVERY ASPECT of the Anglesea Music festival, this small group of dedicated individuals, along with Karren Stoneham (Festival Director) work behind the scenes leading up to the big event and also during the running of AMF.THE WORKING COMMITTEE
Who met weekly in the months leading up to the festival, are very important and were responsible for administration duties such as...
The Bus Route
Posters/Road signs (placement, management & maintenance)

There was NOTHING that the AMF friends of the festival didn't do.
The sense of excitement & community togetherness the 'Friends of the Festival' created was electric, it spread like a wildfire around the Anglesea community & added to the vibrant festival atmosphere (we are sure that the bright orange T-shirts must have also played a part in the vibrancy...) but to be part of the friends of the festival please fill out an application form.
