Hurrah for the sun! This week it's finally started to feel like summer isn't so far away. Applications have been flooding in from lots of you keen to volunteer with us at the 2015 Latitude, Reading and Leeds festivals so it looks like you're feeling the same!
We're now 65% full for summer 2015 festival volunteering positions (we've actually only got 57 positions left at Reading Festival!) so if you'd like to join us please don't delay in applying and paying your deposit!
We're starting to receive a lot of queries about travelling to the festivals. For those looking to get the train we'll let you know about shuttle buses from the local train stations to the festival sites a little nearer the time as some of the festival shuttle bus time tables are yet to be confirmed.
For those thinking about driving or looking to grab a lift we've setup a 2015 festival lift sharing topic in our forum to help out:
If you're looking for a lift to a festival or you're planning on driving and able to offer a lift our forum is a great place to get in touch with fellow volunteers!
If you've not done it before the idea of festival lift sharing is to meet up with others who are heading to the same festival and travel together. This means you reduce the travel costs, help the environment, and get to know a few people before you arrive at the festival.
Many of our staff and volunteers arrange to share lifts via the Hotbox Events forum every year - please do try and travel to festivals together if you can!
