I worked as a CAT at Leeds Festival 2012 and it was of the best decisions I have ever made! Recommended highly by my friends who volunteered the year before. I was extremely nervous to join them this year as I'd never volunteered at a festival. Within hours we got chatting to a group camped next to us and immediately hit it off with some amazing people making our shifts extremely memorable. Working the festival and chatting to festival goers in white camp also gave me a massive confidence boost and I met some incredible people who I am still in touch with. I got to see my favourite bands for free, rave on a muddy slope with a group of mental festival goers, took a liking to Lambrini and lost my voice singing and jumping around in the crowds! Genuinely cannot wait for next year!
