The eagle-eyed will have spotted that just as all 2017 Reading Festival volunteer places were filled and our application was about to close our team size at Reading Festival jumped from 600 to 900!
This as Reading Festival has asked us to increase the size of our team at Reading to a little over 900 people!
50 of the new places have already gone so if you'd like to join us at Reading 2017 please apply ASAP to secure your place before the extra spots are gone too!
Head over and apply to volunteer at Reading now!
If you'd like to find out more about volunteering at Reading you can find lots of info on our Reading Festival page including when you need to arrive, how volunteer shift patterns are organised to make sure you see as much of the festival as possible, the areas and facilities you'll have access to as part of the Reading Festival team, and what to expect when volunteering with Hotbox at Reading!
If you've not volunteered at a festival before and you're wondering what it's like our festival FAQs are packed full of answers to the questions we're regularly asked, plus lots of hints and tips about volunteering at festivals.
If you'd like to chat with people who have volunteered with us before head over to our festival forum where you'll find both new and returning volunteers chatting about what it's like to volunteer at festivals, arranging to share lifts, asking and answering questions...
If you're thinking about volunteering but not sure about doing it on your own don't worry – every year around half of the 3,000 volunteers who join us do so on their own the first time and then return year on year to meet up with friends they've made volunteering at festivals!
If there is anything you're unsure of or would like chat though we're always here to help so please don't hesitate to get in touch!
See you at Reading 2017!
