Become a Steward
We are now opening up applications for volunteer stewards.
Stewarding is great fun and definitely not all work! If you’ve not done it before why not give it a try. It is a great opportunity to make new friends and feel part of the team. Stewards are a vital part of the festival and it would not run without you!
Volunteers get a free full festival pass to all the acts and although you are expected to work for approx 15 hours in total over the period of the festival there is still plenty of time to enjoy yourself. If you are thinking about coming along on your own, you will always be working as part of a team and camping is available in a separate stewards’ area. So why not give it a go?
There are three categories of steward:
Event Stewards work over the 4 actual days of the festival. The jobs are very varied: you could be working in the performance arena, around the site, on gate control, in the campsite, or in town on Saturday when there is a dance procession, and gigs in pubs. In particular, we are looking for volunteers to work in the Festival Bar.
The set-up team work prior to the event to help with the set-up. You do need to be available from the Monday to the Thursday in the run up to the festival. The team work approximately 9am until 5pm each day (Thursday will only be until approx midday). We provide tea, coffee and lunch. Volunteers do need to be mobile and reasonably physically fit to carry out this work. You get the whole festival free though!
This is the team that assists the Site Crew with the clearing up process after the Festival. The will be one short duty on Sunday evening to start clearing the Arena Area, but the bulk of the work is on Monday and Tuesday (you must be available right through to 5pm on Tuesday). You would be camping with the Site Crew and Set Up Team. We do ask that these stewards pay a bond of £100 (equivalent to an early bird ticket) by cheque that will be cashed before the festival. You would be fully reimbursed in cash once the clear down is complete.
The main benefit of being on this team is that you can enjoy the whole of the Festival and appreciate the beautiful site in all its natural glory on Tuesday afternoon!!
