We have a limited number of paid steward jobs available at Camp Bestival Dorset and Camp Bestival Shropshire that we expect to fill very quickly! Applications for paid tower steward jobs at Latitude Festival are planned to open later in the year ‚Äď stay tuned to our newsletters and socials if you'd like to grab one of those spots!

In case you missed it yesterday, Reading and Leeds Festival deposits have reduced by 35% to £95 if it's your first time joining us, or £45 if you've joined us at a festival before, which means if you were planning on applying to Reading or Leeds Festival today you'll have an extra £50 in your pocket this weekend!

As shift preferences are allocated first come first served based on deposit payment date, the sooner your sign up and pay your deposit, the better chance you have of getting your preferred shift pattern! So don't hang around, apply now and get your 2024 festival place confirmed today!

We can't wait to welcome you to a festival field this summer! ‚ėÄÔłŹ

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!

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!
