VOLUNTEER WITH STONEDEAF

Do you want to be a part of Rock History?

If so, read on Stonedeaf Festival is a brand new Rock Festival based on legacy of the old Monsters of Rock shows held at Castle Donington during the 1980’s and 90’s. An old fashioned festival organised entirely by rock fans who attended the original shows at the Castle.

We cannot achieve this without volunteers who share the same vision as we do. People who are just like us and long to go back in time and revisit an era of Rock Festivals where it wasn’t just a show; it was a life changing and magical experience. If you would like to be a part of this historic event and think you are that type of person we need then please keep reading.
