Just 8 weeks until the Dog Squad arrives at Download Festival 2017!

We're now just 8 weeks from Download Festival!

If you've already had your volunteer place at Download confirmed you'll be receiving more info from us very soon including your info pack, how to login and order meal vouchers and choose your shift preferences!

If you're yet to apply to join us at Download we still have volunteer places available but they're going fast so please make sure you apply to volunteer and pay your deposit ASAP to avoid disappointment!

If you're keen to find out more about volunteering with Hotbox at Download this summer as part of the newly named 'Dog Squad' head to our Download Festival page! Here you'll find lots of info about volunteering at Download including when you need to arrive, an overview of volunteer shift patterns, and what to expect when volunteering at Download!

We're receiving a lot of questions about shift patterns from volunteers keen to make sure they can see the bands they'd like to at Download! You'll be able to login and choose your shift preferences in May but between now and then you can find out more about how the Hotbox festival shift preferences system is setup in our festival FAQ.

Food at Download is another topic we’re receiving a lot of questions about! We'll be sending out more info about the options available soon and letting you know how you can login to your PAAM account and pre-order your meal vouchers!

If you've not volunteered at a festival before or just can't remember all the things you forgot last year, our festival FAQs are full of handy hints and tips including our music festivals essentials list which you can find in the Camping and Facilities section!

Please also drop into our festival forums! Both new and returning volunteers are chatting about volunteering at festivals with us this summer. If you're unsure about something it's likely a lot of others are too so our festival forums are a great place to ask questions, share ideas, and make travel plans...

If there is anything you're unsure of or would just prefer to chat with us about something, please don't hesitate to drop us an email or give us a call!

See you at Download!
