Volunteers

Boomtown Volunteer stewards will not be returning for 2022. Thank you for all the support you have given us over the years. It's been a blast! We look forward to hopefully returning in the future. 

There are other volunteer teams operating on-site that we are teaming with for 2022. They offer excellent opportunities for anyone keen to gain experience at Boomtown Fair, whilst also having time to enjoy the event.

Oxfam

Oxfam is a global movement of people working together to end poverty.

By joining our team of volunteer stewards this summer, you'll be helping to raise around £1 million towards our life-saving work, while also having an amazing time at the UK's best music festivals.

At Boomtown our stewards cover the arena and campsites, so you'll never be far from the action, and when you're not on shift the festival is your oyster.

You'll also get access to our secure campsite, with perks like free hot drinks, hot showers, and device charging, and we'll give you a meal ticket for every shift too.

You can use your Boomtown volunteering deposit to sign up to as many festivals as you like with us this year at no additional cost. Plus, if you volunteer with us at two or more festivals this year, you'll get 'Priority' for next year. This means you can grab a place at any of our 2023 festivals before we open applications to the public!

Sign up here from 18th March, or join our Facebook group to stay in the loop.

My Cause

We’ve teamed up with My Cause UK to bring you awesome volunteering opportunities at Boomtown!

When you volunteer with My Cause UK, a charity of your choice receives a donation for your time, without you needing to raise a penny yourself. This means that you get to enjoy the full glory of what Boomtown has to offer, all whilst supporting a cause you care about! 

So far, My Cause UK volunteers have raised £150K for charities such as Mind, WWF, War Child & Crisis to name a few. Our My Cause team will form part of the ‘Gates Team’ in 2022. They will act as the first point of contact for all festival-goers upon arrival, ensuring a smooth and stress-free entrance to Boomtown!

Perks include; No overnight shifts, crew camping, 1x meal per shift (+free tea, coffee, hot water & snacks), an opportunity to volunteer on shifts with friends, free phone charging, chill-out area, access to hot showers & crew facilities + many more!

Requirements: No more than 3x 8 hour shifts (early shift patterns available - meaning you get the chance to complete shifts before the event begins - more information available upon application)

Eco Warriorz

The Festival Frontline’s Eco Warriorz are a force to be reckoned with. Playing the critical role of rewarding recycling in campsites to maintain beautiful clean green fields and making tent abandonment a thing of the past ... their mission is for clean campsites to be the new norm (but they're not litter pickers)!

Protecting the environment is one of Boomtown's six pillars and we’ve partnered with Eco Warriorz to ensure we #LeaveNoTrace in 2022. The Eco Warriorz will bring awareness of critical environmental issues, in a swathe of sexy sustainability!

If you want to play a key part in ensuring the party can go ahead for decades to come - this is the role for you. You’ll need to complete a total of four shifts, of just six hours each. You’ll get a free meal each shift, a chance to enjoy the festival and special Eco Warriorz Perks! Head over to their website to find out more. Don’t forget to bring your best green outfits!
