The ChillOut Festival Team combines people who bring a wealth of ideas and experiences to the festival. Some are new to ChillOut and several have spent the past few years working on the festival. These committee members volunteer their time to plan and coordinate the Festival and related events.

The committee employs limited staff to assist with event coordination. Together we are a great team who aim to bring you a fabulous ChillOut 2018 and other events across the year.
The one thing that binds us together is our commitment to ChillOut and our shared determination to deliver a better festival each and every year.

We are always interested in hearing from people who may like to join our Management Committee or simply assist in the planning and organisation of ChillOut. Please contact the ChillOut office.
