We're just 2 weeks away from the 2018 festival volunteer applications opening on the 1st February!
Everyone at Hotbox can't wait for another amazing summer of music filled fields, and from all of the messages we've been receiving we know you can't either!
If you missed last week's news you'll be happy to know that in 2018 we're reducing deposits for returning volunteers, deposits will be heading back to you faster, and we're removing card payment fees! We hope this comes as welcome news for everyone planning on joining us volunteering at festivals in 2018!
If you'd like to be first in line the 2018 Hotbox Events festival volunteer applications will be opening at midday on Thursday 1st February.
If you already have a Hotbox Events PAAM account, you'll receive an email and text message as soon as the applications open.
If you're yet to setup a Hotbox Events PAAM account, it's quick and easy to sign-up.
If you do already have a Hotbox Events PAAM account, please login and make sure your profile is up to date for 2018!
You need to pay a refundable security deposit to volunteer but as always, your single deposit will cover you for as many festivals as you'd like to volunteer at e.g. you only need to pay 1 deposit each year to volunteer with us at as many festivals as you'd like to!
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 handy hints and tips about volunteering at festivals.
If you'd like to chat with others who have volunteered with us before you can 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 about volunteering at festivals...
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!
If you'd like to see what volunteering is like you can head to our festival photo galleries where you'll find thousands of photos of our volunteers having an amazing time whilst volunteering with us!
If there is anything you'd like to ask or you'd just like to chat with us about volunteering, please don't hesitate to email or call the office or get in touch via one of our social channels!
