2017 Reading and Leeds Festival volunteer shift selection is open!

If you're volunteering with us at the 2017 Reading Festival or Leeds Festival you can now login to Hotbox Events PAAM to choose your festival shift preferences!

There are 23 volunteer shifts available at Reading Festival and 23 volunteer shifts available at Leeds Festival, please make sure you indicate a preference for each shift as PAAM won't let you save your preferences until you have!

We plan to start allocating Reading Festival and Leeds Festival volunteer shifts the week beginning Monday 7th August so please make sure you choose your festival volunteer shift preferences by Monday 7th August at the very latest!

To choose your Reading Festival and Leeds Festival volunteer shift preferences you need to:

  • Login to Hotbox Events PAAM.
  • Select the Reading Festival or Leeds Festival Event Info button.
  • Scroll down to the Event Preferences section.
  • Read the Shift Planner in the Shift/Group Details section.
  • Choose your Shift Preferences via the Shifts/Groups Available dropdowns.
  • Save your preferences using the button at the bottom!

Once we've allocated your shift pattern it will be displayed on your Hotbox Events PAAM overview page.

Also, please don't forget that if you're volunteering with friends you need to make sure you've added their names to your PAAM profile - this is your last chance before Reading Festival and Leeds Festival shifts are allocated!

For further information about how shifts are allocated please read the information within the shift planner PDF.
