We're now just a week away from the 2018 Latitude Festival and everyone in the Hotbox office is busy preparing to welcome our volunteers to another amazing Latitude!
At Latitude Festival our volunteers help all over the festival site! We look after the festival goers in the campsites, keep an eye out from the fire towers, help at the wristband exchanges, the campsite gates and campervan area, in the arena, the children's area, the guest area, the performers campsite...
We also have a team of festival pixies! Our pixie volunteers work in the Faraway Forest and In The Woods. Similar to our campsite volunteers, our pixie volunteers help the festival goers by answering questions, providing directions, keeping an eye out for any fire risks, working with the Faraway Forest and In The Woods managerial and security teams when the wooded areas become very busy late at night to control the crowds and make sure everyone enjoys their festival experience.
If you're joining us as a Latitude Festival Pixie next week, there is one key requirement you need to be aware of...that you'll need to be dressed as a pixie whilst you work!
It's of course not the usual work attire, so we'll offer a few pixie dress hints and tips...
The Hotbox Events office (which resembles a pixie dressing room at shift changes!) will have a selection of pixie wear including wings, ears, hats, face paint and glitter.
If you're allocated to a pixie shift please do come prepared if you can and bring your own pixie accessories! In previous years our Hotbox pixies have brought along:
Please don't feel limited to the list above, we love seeing our pixies heading out to shift and the best are usually the pixies who come prepared!
If you have any pixie volunteer related questions, please get in touch!
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'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!
See you at Latitude!
