Getting involved in the 2020 festival

The backcountry festival is a volunteer run event. We welcome your ideas on how we can make it a great event. If you have a skill relevant to being in the backcountry, and can offer your time, please get in touch.

The festival has grown rapidly in just two years and 2020 is already shaping up to be bigger than last year. It has grown well beyond being a ‘one man show’ so, this year we have set up a series of working groups, each of which has responsibilities for a section of the festival.

The groups are:

Program – tours, skillshares and workshops

  • co-ordinator TBC

Speakers program – to run over two afternoons (fri and sat)

  • Cam Walker (CO-ORD)

Social events including the outdoor bar
