A huge thank you to our 2017 Virgin V Festival staff and volunteers! Please send us your feedback!

A huge thank you to all of our staff and volunteers who joined us working at the 2017 Virgin V Festival!

After a very successful first year at V Festival in 2016, it was fantastic to be able to return to V Festival 2017 with an even larger team to help across the festival site. It was brilliant to see so many volunteers returning to join us at V Festival this year, and to welcome those of you who were new to our team!

In addition to bringing back our amazing scanning and wristbanding teams, in 2017 we added teams in the campsites and arena to provide additional information and assistance to festival goers. We received marvellous feedback throughout the week from V Festival goers very much appreciating the additional support to help them all enjoy their weekend at V Festival.

It was brilliant to see how much enthusiasm you all brought to your roles right from the get-go. We've received amazing feedback from the festival organisers and onsite agencies; everyone having nothing but praise for your hard work and professional manner. You were all kept very busy in your various roles and your positive attitude and eagerness to help really stood out and made a huge difference to V Festival 2017!

We'd like to send out a special thank you to our fantastic staff team, who all work extremely hard throughout the week to support our volunteers in their roles. From our office team, to control, supervisors and managers, you all did a brilliant job so as always thank you so much for your hard work at V 2017!

The feedback we've been receiving from you via our social channels and email about working at the Virgin V Festival and with Hotbox Events has been lovely to read. If you enjoyed your week with us and have a few minutes to send over a paragraph or two for our staff and volunteer feedback page...

Please email this to

Please attach a photo if you can so this can be added to the Hotbox website too!

Your comments and feedback really helps those in future years get an idea of what working at a festival with Hotbox Events is like so please do get in touch if you can!

We're already planning for next year and your suggestions are always taken into consideration; many of which help us to improve both our service to the festival goers and the experience for our staff and volunteers. So, if you do have any comments - good or bad - please don't hesitate to get in touch. We realise nothing is perfect so please don't be afraid of having a moan if there is something you'd like us to take into consideration for 2018.

See you at the 2018 Virgin V Festival!
