I had the most amazing weekend and loved every single moment of it! The work split up the partying and watching bands nicely and we had enough time to rest or watch bands in between shifts. It was an eye opener into how much work goes on behind the scenes at a festival. All the Hotbox volunteers, camp supervisors and camp managers I worked with were great and really put a lot of time and effort into helping and making sure the public were safe and happy. I would love to come back next year, but don’t think its going to be possible as my sister has just booked her wedding for that weekend!! I would recommend anyone to work with Hotbox at a festival and hopefully I will get the chance another year.
