Festival and Event Staff

Hotbox Events recruits and manages festival and event staff for festivals across the UK.

The first event we worked with was Leeds Festival in 2003, since then we've grown from supplying a small team of just 6 staff to over two thousand stewards every year!

If you run a festival or event and would like more information about the festival and event staff Hotbox Events can provide please contact us.

Our Festival and Event Staff Experience

Our management team has been recruiting and managing festival and event staff since the early 90s.

We supply and manage teams of up to 850 at the festivals we work with, helping in the campsites, on fire towers, gates, wristband exchanges and in the arenas.

Our Festival and Event Staff Services

Our event teams provide support and customer service to festival and event goers, whilst working with other onsite agencies to help reduce crime and keep ticket holders safe.

The key areas our festival and event staff assist with include:

  • Working in campsites, arenas, on gates, fire towers, and wristband exchanges.
  • Our staff are the eyes and ears of a festival or event; trained to be proactive and alert to any potential problem.
  • Promoting crime awareness and crime prevention to the public.
  • Working with onsite teams to ensure medical, fire and security issues are dealt with promptly and safely.
  • Helping to prevent overcrowding and on hand to monitor crowd safety.
  • Assisting the public to create an environment where they feel safe.
  • Directing the public, assisting with ingress and egress to help the process run smoothly and effectively.
  • Supporting ticket holders, providing information about the event including facilities and performances to ensure they have the best possible time at your event.

I loved working as a CAT at Reading festival 2009! I'd already been to Reading festival the year before, but this was the first time that I worked. The shifts that I worked meant that I was able to see most of the bands that I wanted to. The staff toilets, showers and campsites were fantastic too! I met some great people, (staff and campers) and even though my shifts were rainy and cold, I would recommend it!
