If you're volunteering with us at the 2018 Download Festival you can now login to Hotbox Events PAAM to choose your festival shift preferences!
There are 17 volunteer shift patterns available at Download 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 Download volunteer shifts the week beginning Monday 21st May so please make sure you choose your festival volunteer shift preferences by Monday 21st May at the very latest!
To choose your Download volunteer shift preferences you need to:
1. Login to Hotbox Events PAAM.
2. Select the Download Festival Info button.
3. Read the Shift Planner in the Shift Pattern Preference section.
4. Choose your Shift Preferences via the Shift Dropdowns.
5. Update your preferences using the button at the bottom!
Once we've allocated your shift pattern it will be displayed in the Group section of your Download Festival Info 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 Download Festival shifts are allocated!
For further information about how shifts are allocated please read the information within the shift planner PDF.
