This time next week we'll be heading to the 2018 Download Festival!
We're busy preparing (yep, on a Bank Holiday Monday...we're that excited!) for our 2018 volunteers to arrive at Donington Park and cannot wait to leave for the UK's biggest rock and metal festival next week!
If you'd like to join us at Download but you've not yet applied there is still time...but you'll need to be quick...
...as we now only have 18 volunteer places left at Download 2018!
If you'd like to find out more and apply head to our Download Festival info page!
You need to pay a refundable security deposit to volunteer but as always, when volunteering with Hotbox Events one deposit covers you for as many festivals as you'd like to volunteer at, in other words...
You only need to pay 1 deposit to volunteer with Hotbox at as many festivals as you like!
So, if you've already applied to volunteer with us at another festival this summer you can join us at Download without paying again! All you need to do is login and apply for Download, then just sit back and wait for us to confirm your position!
Plus, there are no admin fees on deposit returns so you get your entire deposit back as long as you complete all of your shifts!
And the great news for 2018 is that deposits will be heading back to you faster, that they're now less for returning volunteers, and there are no card fees to pay!
You can find out more about the deposit changes for 2018 here.
Please remember that the earlier you apply and pay your deposit the more likely you are to get your top choice of shifts at the festivals!
We confirm positions within 24 hours of a deposit being paid Mon-Fri, often much sooner, so if you apply and pay your deposit now you'll receive a confirmation that you have a place volunteering at Download within the next few hours!
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!
See you at Download!
