As we troop on into another new year, we welcome another years worth of recruits into the festival industry. Whether you're a student on the hunt for some work experience, an adult looking for a fun career change, or even just somebody looking for some free festival tickets - here's our top three festivals for you to start your volunteering journey at.


Amid emerald fields and the lushest rural countryside of Herefordshire lies Nozstock The Hidden Valley.

Offering an array of roles, Nozstock are taking applications for an Administrative Intern, a Family Camping Assistant, an Electrics Assistant, a Construction Assistant and Decor Crew. They also have a number of short-term roles, all available to apply for here.


The strength of Shambala lies in it’s diverse community. There are a zillion ways you can be part of the festival, so click here to look through all the different opportunities and get involved! Most applications close on 31st January (if not sooner) so don’t hang around!

The rest of their applications (Bar staff, Stewards, Poetry, Workshops and the rest!) will go live in the coming weeks, so do check back.

Birmingham Pride

Volunteering for Birmingham Pride means you’ll be a valued member of the Birmingham Pride team, in the thick of everything over the festival weekend in September. Pride requires dedicated, passionate people to help with the parade, stewarding, fundraising, accessibility, and more. You could be working with us in the ticketing areas, at the ‘Street Party’ event, the ‘Free community Pride’ event, or the ‘Smithfield Live’ arena. Whatever your passion or interest, they have a role for you, here.
