Work with us

Get the chance to be part of a great crew, travelling the country and attending amazing festivals. We work together, eat together and party together. We should say that we are not a massive party crew – there is downtime at the weekend to enjoy the festival, but if you then can’t get up at 7.30 on Monday morning for a hard days work then you will struggle.

Our preference is to have a solid crew who work together all summer so we won’t accept applications to work at one or two specific festivals at this time. All candidates must be physically fit and capable of working long hours in any weather. If you would like to attend one specific festival we operate at, then you can contact us to see if we have any bed making / reception volunteer slots available.

If your application is successful, we will ask you to an interview in person or via zoom. Then we will invite you to a recruitment day (paid) at our barn near Lewes, East Sussex. Date tbc.
