Boomtown Fair 2017

Boomtown rose up from the underground in 2009 to become one of the UK’s wildest and most inspiring independent festivals. From a humble village fair it is now a sprawling creative metropolis and home to every species of artistic miscreant! Join thousands of citizens on an immersive audio-visual joyride, dancing through the labyrinthine streets and plazas on a non-stop weekend journey of discovery!

Returning for our third adventure at Boomtown, the My Cause UK family can’t wait to get back to our spiritual home. Be part of our team and you will be running the gates, welcoming more than 50,000 people to the festival – getting them in the festival mood, checking their tickets and giving out wristbands.

You will be the face of the festival and in return for your time you will get free entry to the event, a free meal while on shift, access to crew camping and facilities and as a thank you we will give a donation to the charity of your choice!

Going to more than one festival?

Many of our volunteers choose to spend their whole summer with us at a number of events. You only need to pay one deposit to attend as many events as you like, and every hour you volunteer raises more cash for your chosen cause.
