Whether you’ve enjoyed the festival for years or are new to "Hillsiding", we encourage you to consider becoming an official member of our wonderful Hillside Festival community. As a member, you’ll support our mission to celebrate creativity through artistic expression, community engagement and environmental leadership. You’ll also help us to create opportunity in the arts and tech for underrepresented groups, including youth, Indigenous, female, and LGBTQ+ identified people.

What's in it for me?

Join us to receive newsletters and invitations to exclusive member events, and have your voice heard, along with your vote, at our Annual General Meeting. Most importantly, this is an opportunity to add your input into this fantastic group of engaged people who help ensure the festival represents the community in which we live, and that it continues to thrive.
