Can’t afford to attend one of this year’s festivals? Why not work at one instead?

01/07/2011

All of the major festivals hire hundreds of staff each year from stewards to support staff. So, why not register today and join in the fun?

How does it work?

Register online with the organization you want to work for. You may have to put down a deposit – the price of a ticket – which is reimbursed after the festival as long as you turn up to your shifts. If you’re stewarding, these can vary from guarding entrances, giving people information and stewarding events. Most stewarding jobs are for 5 days, and you will have some free time to enjoy the entertainment.

Most organizations will also provide you with meal tickets for every shift, private camping, private toilets, free tea and coffee, and hot showers, making for an enjoyable festival experience. You’ll usually also get transport to and from the festival if it’s a big organization.
