Welcome to the Hotbox Events staff and volunteer community!

We hope you enjoy having a look around the photo galleries, chatting with members new and old in the forums, connecting and sharing on our social channels, and don't forget to keep up to date by joining our newsletter!


Festival Forums

The Hotbox Events staff and volunteer forums are a great place to chat with people you'll be working with at the festivals, ask questions of those who have worked with us before, arrange lift sharing to festivals and more!

Photo Galleries

Hotbox Events began it's life recruiting and managing volunteers for the 2003 Leeds Festival, since then our volunteers have managed to escape to the Reading Festival in 2006, then Latitude Festival in 2008, and V Festival in 2016!

With so little control there really is no telling what you may find in the galleries!

Social Channels

You can connect with Hotbox events on twitter, facebook, instagram, google+ and linkedin.

Our social channels are always packed with information about volunteering at festivals, and busy with Hotbox Events staff and volunteers sharing photos, arranging to meet and share lifts, asking questions and chatting about the festivals and events we work with.


If you haven't already please subscribe to the Hotbox Events newsletter so we can let you know when our festival volunteer applications open each year, when you can login to Hotbox Events PAAM and choose your shift preferences, when to expect your festival info packs and keep you updated with last minute changes as we get closer to the festivals.

We promise not to overwhelm your inbox - we generally send out just one newsletter per month.

I'd never been to Leeds before so it was a bit nerve racking when I decided to go by myself as I thought most people would have applied with friends. As soon as I got there though everyone was dead friendly and it turned out that most people had done the same as me and were meeting everyone for the first time. Shifts were good as well I only missed about 4 hours of the actual festival so I didn't feel like I had missed anything really. Shifts were actually very enjoyable, we were campsite assistants so not a bad job as we got to socialise a bit and got to meet some "interesting" people. You feel your belongings are a lot safer as well as you're camped in the staff area. I was really gutted when it was all over, and I met some amazing people who I plan to stay in touch with. I also met POO GIRL the Leeds 2009 legend. Good times :) x
