What is lift sharing?

The idea of festival lift sharing is to meet with others who are heading in the same direction, usually in a car, and travel together.

You save on fuel costs and help protect the environment!

In previous years, many of our festival staff and volunteers have arranged to share lifts via the Hotbox Events Forum so please do try and travel together whenever possible and spread the word!

How to arrange to share a lift?

If you are offering a lift, please post a message in this forum including:

  • Which festival you are travelling to
  • Where you are travelling from, or can meet up
  • How many spaces you have in your vehicle
  • When you are travelling

E.g. "I am leaving Cornwall on 9th July, passing London, travelling to Latitude Festival, I have two spaces in my car"

If you are requesting a lift, please post a message in this forum including:

  • Which festival you are travelling to
  • Where you are travelling from, or can meet up
  • How many spaces you need e.g. just you, or for friends too
  • When you are travelling

E.g. "I am leaving Cornwall on 9th July, passing London, travelling to Latitude Festival, with one friend"

How to contact people about lift sharing?

You can contact people from the Hotbox Events forum; if you click on someone's username next to one of their posts you will be taken to the user's forum profile where you can click ‘Message Me’. This is a good way to work out details such as times and locations.

Best of luck finding your 2017 festival lift!

Hey
I will be travelling to Reading and I am looking to car share. I'm going alone from South Wales but can use public transport to get somewhere where it would be easier to get a lift. I am hoping to head up on the 22nd but I am fine with also heading up on the 23rd

Hi all, looking to possibly geg a lift to Download from Leicester? It's pretty close if anyone's passing through, obviously happy to chip in for fuel etc thanks!

Hi Miniwoo,

Will you be traveling through North Wales (Wrexham) by any chance? I am also going to Download and would be happy to provide fuel costs for a lift?

EDIT: I can meet in Neport (as Wrexham is quite far from Newport) if you still have space?

Hi, I'm from Brighton and, my friend and I are looking to get a lift to Reading on the 23rd of August (and back if possible). We can get to london or nearby easily and are happy to contribute to petrol cost as well as bringing snacks and solid tunes. Message me if you're heading that way and fancy some company - we'd be very grateful. Many thanks, Ephra x

NORTHAMPTON TO DOWNLOAD - up to 3 spaces

 

Hi, 

I'm driving from Northampton (probably) on Tuesday, aiming to get there between 12:00 and 14:00 (or early Wed if I don't get a Wednesday shift).

Return depends entirely on shifts but most likely leaving (EARLY) Monday morning.

Anyone looking for a lift from N'ton let me know - Happy to collect from Northampton train station if that helps anyone.

Hi

Is anyone from Hampshire travelling to Download Festival on Tuesday to be there in time for the 7.00pm briefing?

  • I am looking for one space and can get a train to a pick up point if that is easier.  I can split petrol and would like to come back on Monday.
