Working as a CAT at Reading Festival 2013 was an awesome experience! I got to meet loads of new people, both the workers and the campers and I saw most of the bands I wanted to see. The shifts are awesome, well the night shift is pretty crazy, but without doubt it is worth the experience. Volunteering is most definitely the way forward for festivals and I wouldn't go to them any other way!
You can find out what volunteering at festivals is like by checking out our festival volunteer interviews!
You can also find lots of info about every festival we volunteer with on our festival pages.
You can apply to volunteer at music festivals by signing up to our online festival volunteer application!
Festival volunteer applications open at the beginning of Feb each year, with sometimes a few extra festivals to volunteer at added throughout the year.
We send a message to every volunteer who signs up when applications open!
