Stewarding applications for 2017 and the waiting list are now closed.
Volunteer stewards cover a whole range of tasks around the festival site. Most of these will be customer focussed, outdoors and busy, so we’re looking for confident, hardworking, friendly and supportive people to join our team.
In order to apply you will need:
1- A deposit payment
£50 for returning volunteers, £195 for new applicants
2- A digital passport style photograph (for your ID card)
3- Be 18 years old or over when arriving on site to volunteer
These are the shift options for volunteers, subject to availability:
Option 1: Thursday-Saturday – This will involve working a long shift on Thursday (approx. 12 hours) and one normal (6hr) shift on either Friday or Saturday.
Option 2: Standard shift pattern – Friday-Sunday. 3x6hr shifts (18 hours maximum), made up of one morning shift, one afternoon and one evening.
Option 3: Pre/post festival – This option involves working on Tuesday-Thursday pre-festival and on the Monday morning post-festival. The total number of hours is approximately 28hours and is higher than other options as you will not be working at all during the festival live days.
Option 4: Earlies Team. This option requires you to work each morning Friday to Monday (total of 17 hours).
Option 5: Lates Team. We need a small team to cover the late-night venues on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. This requires you to work approx. 11.5 hours in total.
Night shifts – Working in the stewards marquee overnight. You will be required to work two nights (total of 17 hours).
Once again EOTR Festival will be working with the wonderful Wicked Events Team. On completing the form, your details will be shared with Wicked Events who manage the recruitment process and on site management of our lovely team of volunteers.
