The Leeds Festival 2005 volunteer Briefing Packs have been posted and should be arriving through your letter boxes in the next few days, in the meantime please find a little info below.
You are expected to arrive at the festival site on Wednesday, 24 August 2005 between 11:00 - 18:00. Please ensure that you have made the necessary arrangements to be at the festival site from Wednesday, 24 August until Monday, 29 August.
If you are arriving for the early shift (Wednesday evening (17:00-23:00), the briefing for these volunteers is planned for 2pm) you may access the site via Blue Gate (Details below & enclosed within briefing pack) and park in the staff car parks. If you are not - please use the A64 Red Gates and park in the Public car parks as we do not have enough room for all of the festival's volunteers within the staff car park.
After arriving at the site you will need to contact us - our phone numbers are within the briefing pack, or ask the nearest member of staff with a radio to contact us for you, we will then meet you and check you in and show you where to camp. The next stage will be attending a briefing meeting, this will provide important information about the roles and responsibilities of being a CAT. The briefing meeting is planned to commence at 21:00 (There is an earlier briefing planned for the early shift at 14:00) - although due to the nature of festivals the times may change at short notice.
Further details about volunteering will be provided within the briefing pack, this you should have received in the post by Monday 22nd August, if you don't receive a briefing pack, you will receive one on checking in - please do ask! In the meantime, if there are any questions please contact us or ask a question via the forum.
We look forward to working with you at Leeds Festival 2005!
