2 weeks to Download Festival 2024! Volunteer now to avoid missing out on the best week of your life!

Thursday, May 30, 2024

"One of the best experiences of our lives!" and "The best week of my life!" are just two of the things said by Download Festival volunteers after joining us last year 😊

Don't miss out on what could be the best week of your life and apply to join us now 🤘

With an incredible line up of Fall Out Boy, Limp Bizkit, Busted, Avenged Sevenfold, Queens of the Stone Age, The Offspring, Babymetal and Sum 41's final ever UK festival, it's set to be an unmissable weekend of rock ğŸŽ¶

Over 50% of our volunteers come on their own and make friends at the festival, so don't let attending solo stop you from seeing behind the scenes at one of the biggest music festivals in the world! ğŸŽª

And it's not just about what's happening in the arena, as a volunteer you'll get a secure, private campsite, close-by car parking, discounted catering, free phone charging, crew toilets, hot showers, plus 1000 other like-minded volunteers to meet and make friends with! 🤝

If you're not sure and would like to hear a little more first, our volunteer films provide a great insight into what it's like to join us ğŸŽ¥

A good first watch is our Day in the life of a Hotbox Download volunteer film.

If you like what you see, time is running out to join us at Download Festival 2024, so head over and apply now!

If you have not joined us at a festival before and are wondering what it is like, check out some of our staff and volunteer interviews!

In the interviews you will get to hear from those who have joined us talking about how they found their shifts, how they felt they were looked after by the Hotbox team, what it was like working solo for the first time, taking on more responsibility year on year, and even how the experience and confidence gained has helped with career progression away from festivals!


Another way to see what joining us is like is to check out some of our festival photos!

In our festival photo galleries, you will find thousands of photos covering our festival history over the past twenty years!

Going Solo

It's totally normal to be anxious before coming to a festival, particularly if you're coming solo! We get hundreds of messages every year from people wanting to join us but nervous about doing it, so we promise you're not alone! We're a very friendly bunch so if there's anything we can do to reduce your anxiety please get in touch! Try joining our Facebook Group to make friends with others before the festival - there are even a few WhatsApp groups that have been set up too!
