Festival Volunteering Opportunities
How does it work?
It’s simple – you give your time at a festival, and in return – we make a donation to a charity of your choice. You don’t need to raise any money or make a donation yourself. You simply pay 1x refundable deposit which covers you for as many festivals as you wish to volunteer at. All you need to do is complete your shifts & have a great time! You then receive your deposit back after your last event.
Volunteering is a gateway to making unforgettable friends while getting free entry to the UK’s leading festivals! Volunteering with My Cause UK means you become part of a community that is exciting, adventurous and passionate about making a change in the world we live in.
What will I be doing?
The role you take on depends on the needs of the festival. This can include: stewarding stages, campsites and car parks, running festival eco-bonds, staffing gates, checking tickets and wrist-banding. Make sure you check the festival you’re interested in to see the specific role you’ll be doing.
Can I volunteer with friends?
Absolutely! The more the merrier! We can’t guarantee that your roles will be in the same location, but we will try our best to ensure that you will be working at the same times so you can enjoy your time off together. Please make sure you add the full names of your friends on your application, exactly as they have spelt their name on their application.
What's in it for me?
Why buy a festival ticket, when you get in for free? All of our positions will get you a crew wristband that allows you to enjoy the event when you are not working. This includes free tea and coffee, snacks and around the clock support from our awesome team of volunteer managers. For weekend camping events you will also get perks like a free meal ticket for each shift worked, access to a dedicated crew camping area with hot showers, phone charging points and lots more!
Why not join the official My Cause UK community group on Facebook?
