We're looking for talented photographers to join us at the 2018 Download Festival, Latitude Festival, RiZE, Reading Festival and Leeds Festival!
Our volunteers do an amazing job looking after festival goers across the festival sites, from the arena to the campsites and everywhere in-between there isn't many a corner you can turn without bumping into one of our festival volunteers ready to help!
Throughout the year we love to post about how amazing we think our volunteers are, to both encourage those who haven't volunteered at a festival before to give it a try and to remind those who have what an amazing time they had the last time they volunteered with us!
To do this, we need your help to capture our volunteers at their best!
So if photography is your thing, be it your profession, your area of study, or you just love taking photos and have a great eye for composition, and of course you love festivals as much as we do and would like to get involved, please get in touch!
If you join us this summer as one of our festival volunteer photographers you'll be issued with a press photo pass (which will be yours to keep!), a full briefing at the festival, crew camping, parking, catering, toilets, showers, plus all the additional benefits every Hotbox Events volunteer enjoys!
Subject to approval from Hotbox Events and the festival organisers Festival Republic; you'll also be able to promote your photography at the festival in your personal portfolio!
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!
