Role

Volunteers will be required for 3 x 8 hour shifts. We are the ONLY stewarding team offering no overnight shifts! We’re looking for festival volunteers to join our ‘Gates & Stewarding Team’; welcoming festival-goers, checking tickets & wrist-banding.

As a member of our family, you will receive a crew wristband, free entry to the festival, training and support from an experienced team, 1x meal token per shift, tea, coffee & loads of time to enjoy the music!

We have access to a secure volunteer campsite which has free hot showers, phone charging points, and a safe & supportive community of My Cause UK volunteers who are one BIG family!

Whether you come by yourself, or with friends, you’re guaranteed to meet new faces & relish in the community feel of the My Cause UK crew at Boomtown this year!
