We're looking for talented photographers to join us at Camp Bestival, Reading Festival and Leeds Festival!
Our festival volunteers do a fantastic job looking after the public across the festival sites, from the arena to the campsites and everywhere in-between you'll find our festival volunteers ready to help!
Year round we love to post about how awesome 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 with us!
To do this, we need your help to capture our volunteers at their best!
So if festivals and photography are 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 at Camp Bestival, Reading Festival or Leeds Festival as one of our festival volunteer photographers you'll be issued with a press photo pass (which will be yours to keep!), we'll provide a full briefing at the festival, staff 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; you'll also be able to promote your festival photography in your personal or business portfolio!
If you've not volunteered at a festival before and you're wondering what it's like volunteering with Hotbox Events, make sure you checkout some of our staff and volunteer interviews! You'll get to hear from volunteers who have joined us talking about how they found their shifts, how they were looked after by the Hotbox team, what it was like volunteering for the first time on their own, taking on more responsibility year on year and progressing from a volunteer to staff role, and even how the experience and confidence gained has helped with their career progression away from festivals!
If you have specific questions about volunteering at festivals try our festival FAQs! They're regularly updated and packed full of answers to the questions we're usually 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 considering volunteering on your own and are a little apprehensive, don't worry, every year at least half of those 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!
Another way to see what volunteering is like is to head over 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 socials!
See you at Camp Bestival, Reading and Leeds 😊
