Would you like to be an Oyé Rep?
Each year, Africa Oyé has to work hard to keep the festival free which, with an ever-growing event, is becoming increasingly challenging.

This is why we need you!

As an Oyé Representative, you will be working with us in keeping the festival free to all – providing positive relations with our audiences and helping to raise funds to sustain future festivals.

The role of an Oyé Rep is to collect donations, conduct audience questionnaires, sell raffle tickets and hand out information about the event, all the while engaging with our fantastic festival-goers.

We are asking for 2 hours of your time (or more if you would like) at the festival on Saturday 17th or Sunday 18th June 2017. As well as helping the festival remain free for all, you will get an Africa Oyé t-shirt, refreshments and a chance to meet people and learn new skills to enhance your CV

About Africa Oyé

Africa Oyé is a registered charity which provides a free, 2-day music festival annually in Liverpool. 2017 sees the festival celebrate its 25th anniversary.

We are the UK’s largest celebration of African and Caribbean music and culture and have been described as having ‘the most vibrant atmosphere amongst the best festival audience in the world!’

What are we looking for?

Confidence, personality and enthusiasm. Our volunteers need to be outgoing and motivated, with a friendly presence and determined attitude.

Practical Considerations

To become an Oyé Rep we only ask that you are over the age of 18, have a love for the festival (or would like to learn more about it) and help us in our mission to keep the festival free for all for years to come.

You will need to make your own way to and from the festival site but there are plenty of public transport options and it is a beautiful cycling/walking location.

If you would like to sign up as an Oyé Rep for 2017, please email your expression of interest to

Africa Oyé will take place on 17th and 18th June in Sefton Park, from 12:30pm until 9:30pm both days. Entrance is FREE for all. For more information, please
