Hey thought i'd set up a forum for any Download volunteers! Always good to chat before hand. I've worked with both hotbox and festaff previously over the years it's so much fun!

Hey all - I'm heading to Download on the Wednesday as part of the Hotbox team! Great line up! Agreed.
Going alone - bought two tickets originally, but my partner isn't able to make it now, so thought I'd volunteer instead - keep me busy!


Is anyone driving from London? I'm willing to chip in for car sharing.

All the best for now!

Hello! 

I'm heading to Download on Tuesday from Gloucester/ Swindon area with room for one more in my car  

First time going and getting pretty excited! 

Gordon posted this 01 May 2017

Hey Guys,

First time coming to help out, coming alone from Edinburgh, may be driving if anyone wants to share a car.

Looking forward to so many of the bands, especially System, ADTR, Mastadon. The list goes on, also excited for NXT.

Hi everyone,

I would love to volunteer at Download Festival but I live in Belfast and have no car. So my question, though I guess it's rather unlikely: Is there anyone from Belfast volunteering this year?

Also I wonder if travel expenses are being refunded for volunteers?

Thank you!

As the last shift on Monday will be up until 17:00, I have a problem if that is the case. Buses only leave at 10.00 at the latest. Anyone driving from (and back to) London?

Would be great to sort out a car share for this.

Thanks all!

Hello everyone. I'm looking to jump in someone's car and share petrol costs if anyone is driving from London. Really looking forward to being part of the Hotbox team at Download. Ed

Just asked for my shifts essentially all to be worked around Simple Plan...fingers crossed!

Hi guys! Food-related question from an Italian..I guess clichés are true! Ahah

Since I'll be flying to download, I won't be able to bring any cooking utensils or stoves. So I was wondering: do you know if there's a supermarket within walking distance and if there is the possibility of borrowing/renting tools? Not looking for big fancy meals, just "survival" food!

Anyone passing Airport just after 3pm on the wednesday for a short lift

 

krisk91 posted this 28 May 2017

Hey guys! I'm going to be driving from Manchester so if anyone needs lifts, just give me a message. I'm not 100% sure on when I will be going down and coming back as I haven't been told what shifts I have etc.

BeckyP posted this 28 May 2017

Hey from what i remember last year the supermarket is a little bit of a walk away however people were always driving there and offering out lifts for other people who needed to go

Hey, as early as possible Wednesday for me! Have a feeling it won't be until afternoon though as whatever time I set off I'm likely to hit bad traffic

LIFT AVAILABLE FROM NORTHAMPTON.

Hi all, Super excited for my first year volunteering. And all by myself too, though I can't imagine it'll take too long to meet like-minded people at Download!!!

I'm travelling from Northampton and have up to 3 spaces available. Happy to collect from Northampton train station (on the Euston to Birmingham line) if that helps. Plan to travel up on Tuesday (assuming I get the shift I want) and back early Monday (again shift dependent).

ashort posted this 31 May 2017

Hey Guys. I've been allocated Top Road 1. Not one of preferences. Struggling to see how I'm gonna get there and back in time. Any ideas?

Hi, I'm Cecilia and I've been put in Bravo 1  

1) Is anyone driving from Central London to Download on Wednesday? I'm happy to chip in £15 for petrol. 

2) Is anyone driving from Download to Central London/East London on Sunday night or very early in the morning on Monday? I need to get to work on Monday. I'm happy to pay £25 for this ride. 

Cheers and happy festivalling!

ashort posted this 31 May 2017

Cecilia, I'm also looking to go from Central/East London at the same time as you (although Wednesday departing after 30pm as its the earliest I can get out). Trains/buses do not accomodate my needs! So tricky!

Hey everyone! So I saw many people looking for lifts from London and just wanted to let you know East Midlands Trains have tickets for £11 St Pancras - East Midlands Parkway (then there's a shuttle to EMA, shouldn't be more than £7). It's cheap and you can get to Donington is about 2 hours! Hope it helps!
