Watch interviews with our festival volunteers

If you've not volunteered at a music festival before and would like to find out more about what it's like volunteering at festivals before applying, make sure you checkout our festival volunteer interviews!

In the interviews you'll get to hear from volunteers who have joined us talking about how they found their shifts, how they were treated by the Hotbox Events team, what it was like volunteering at a festival for the first time on their own, taking on more responsibility year on year and progressing from a festival volunteer to staff role, and even how the experience and confidence gained has helped with their career progression away from music festivals!

Volunteering at Download with Hotbox was undoubtedly and simply one of the best weeks of my life.
As this was my first festival volunteering experience, the benefits exceeded my expectations. The showers were surprisingly decent, the main Hotbox tent was fantastic for socialising in addition to the plug sockets, and the free tea/coffee was the cherry on top! Knowing that I can volunteer again, I can safely say that I do not plan on buying a normal audience ticket for these festivals ever again.
Of course, it goes without saying that the people were awesome. I was fortunate enough to be going with a friend of mine and together we made new friends who stuck from our very first shift on day 1 together!
