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 a team. Stewards are a vital part of the festival.
Volunteers get a free full festival pass. You'll work for approximately 15 hours in total over the period of the festival but there is still plenty of time to enjoy yourself.  If you're thinking about coming along on your own, you'll always be working as part of a team and camping is available in a separate stewards’ area.


There are three categories of steward:

Weekend Stewards

Weekend Stewards work over the 4 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, or behind the bar. You'll be able to express preferences when you apply, though we cannot guarantee everyone gets the positions they prefer.

Set-up Stewards (now full)

The set-up team work prior to the event to help with the set-up. You will need to be available from Monday to the Thursday in the run up to the festival. The team works approximately 9am until 5pm each day (Thursday will only be until about midday).   We provide tea, coffee and lunch. Volunteers need to be mobile and reasonably physically fit to carry out this work.  You get the whole festival free though!


We have closed applications for set-up stewards. Following a great response, we have now filled the positions in this team. If you have already applied and not heard from us please check your spam email folder.

Take-down Stewards

This is the team that assists the Site Crew with the clearing up process after the Festival. There 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 can camp in the Stewards' area or with the Site Crew and Set Up Team. We ask these stewards to pay a bond of £100 (roughly equivalent to an early bird ticket) by cheque. This will be cashed before the festival.  You'll be fully reimbursed in cash once the clear-down is complete.
The main benefits of being on this team are that you can enjoy the whole Festival and appreciate the beautiful site in all its natural glory on Tuesday afternoon.
