Download Festival


6-10 June


Weekend festival held at Donington Park.

You won’t see these headliners anywhere else, so if you want to be moshing along to Guns & Roses, Avenged Sevenfold and Ozzy Osborne this summer, you know where you need to be.

The vibe

Rock and metal fans have been calling Download home since 2003, but its history goes back much further. The crowd effortlessly mixes old-timers with newbies; no wonder it’s often described the friendliest festival on the block.

The role

We’re looking for festival volunteers to be part of the Gates Team, welcoming festival-goers as they arrive, checking their tickets and wristbanding.

You’ll be required for 3 x 8 hour shifts between Wednesday and Sunday. There will be no overnight shifts! You’ll get free entry and priority access to the event, training and support from an experienced team, a free meal for every shift, access to crew camping and facilities with your own chill, charge and chat area, tea and coffee, and loads of time to enjoy the music!

Why Download Festival?
