Regular Shifts – 6–12 August 2019
Where and what
A unique world of unity, creativity and freedom comes alive for five days at the Matterley Estate in Winchester.
Chapter 11 of the Boomtown Saga brings us a “Radical City”.
MS LAURYN HILL, PROPHETS OF RAGE, THE STREETS, CHASE & STATUS, GROOVE ARMADA, CHRONIXX, SLAVES, UB40, SALT-N-PEPPA, GOGOL BORDELO, XAVIER RUDD, KATE TEMPEST, BEDOIN SOUNDCLASH + SO MANY MORE….
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 be part of the ‘Gates & Stewarding Team’; welcoming festival-goers, checking tickets and wrist-banding. You’ll get a crew wristband, free entry to the festival, training and support from an experienced team, a free lunch provided, tea and coffee, a safe place to leave your stuff and loads of time to enjoy the music!

Early shift information:
Super Early and Early Shift volunteers will have completed one or two shifts before the festival starts but may be required to complete one or more shifts over the festival weekend.
Regular shift volunteers will complete all 3 x 8-hour shifts between Thursday 8th and Monday 12th August.
If you have requested Super Early, or Early Shift and that shift is already full we will put you on the next available shift pattern and let you know. If a friend wants to volunteer with you on an early shift but the shift is already full we will only be able to move a volunteer from the early shifts to the regular shifts to volunteer with their friends but not the other way round.
Boomtown is a city like no other! A spectacle that eclipses reality, pulls in theatre, escapism, community & creativity…What’s not to like about that?
