Festival Jobs and Festival Work with Hotbox Events
Festival Jobs and Festival Work
You can gain free entrance to the summers' best festivals by applying to volunteer with Hotbox Events or joining our festival staff team!
Hotbox Events works closely with festival organisers; recruiting and managing festival staff and volunteers for UK festivals including the Reading Festival, Leeds Festival and Latitude Festival.
Our festival staff and volunteers play a big part in creating a good atmosphere and helping the festival goers to get the most out of their festivals. By joining the Hotbox Events team you can help us to continue to achieve this!
Applying to work at festivals as a volunteer
The easiest way to get involved with festival work is to start by volunteering. Volunteering at festivals allows you to gain experience, make festival contacts and most importantly see if festival work is right for you! Many of our festival volunteers progress to join us in staff positions once they have gained some experience working at festivals.
Applying to volunteer at a festival is also the best way to secure your position at a festival as every year we receive hundreds of applications for the limited number of festival jobs we have available.
For more information about volunteering at festivals with Hotbox Events please select the festival you're interested in:
- Volunteer to work at Latitude Festival
- Volunteer to work at Reading Festival
- Volunteer to work at Leeds Festival

Applying for work and jobs as part of our festival staff team

If you're not interested in volunteering and only wish to show your interest in working with us as part of our paid festival staff team please email us. A member of our festival recruitment team will then get in touch and request that you send through your CV showing details of your experience and any relevant qualifications.
When recruiting festival staff we look for relevant festival or event experience - this doesn't need to have been with us but if you have volunteered with Hotbox Events at a festival or event in the past this will help with your application.
When we begin the festival staff recruitment process for the year - usually a month or so after we start recruiting volunteers - we'll be in touch. Those shortlisted will need to be available for an interview either over the phone or face-to-face.
We always advertise our festival staff jobs on our website, in our newsletter, and via our social networks. So if you're interested in working at festivals with Hotbox Events please make sure you've subscribed to our Newsletter, RSS Feed and joined us on Twitter, Facebook and Google+!
