2019 Latitude Festival volunteer shifts, info pack, meal ordering!

If you're volunteering with us at the 2019 Latitude Festival your shifts have now been assigned, your info pack is ready, and you can order your meal vouchers!

You can find out which shift pattern you’re on by logging into Hotbox Events PAAM. Your shift is shown on the Latitude Festival Event Info page. Please note that if you've only just had your Latitude Festival volunteer position confirmed then your shift may still be pending. We're assigning new volunteer shifts daily so please check back for an update!

We'll again have our very own caterer situated in the Hotbox Events compound! The Hotbox caterer will be serving a variety of hot and cold food, drinks, and snacks, from midday on Tuesday 16th July.

You can find a sample menu in Hotbox Events PAAM.

Meal vouchers are available at a greatly discounted price compared to the public festival food outlets.

Pre-ordered meal vouchers cost £5.50 and with each voucher you can purchase food and drink up to the value of £6.00 e.g. you get a further discount for pre-ordering your meals!

Please note that packed lunches cannot be bought on the day and must be pre-ordered; please bear this in mind if you'd like a packed lunch to take on shift with you.

Packed lunch vouchers are day specific but meal vouchers are not, standard meal vouchers can be used at our caterer any time between Tuesday 16th and Monday 22nd July.

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'll be 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 Latitude 😊
