On this page you can find out about what the Buddhafield Festival Site Crew does, what we need you to be able to commit to and how to volunteer.

Best festival I’ve ever been to, and I’ve been to ’em all!

Work Details and Dates

We are looking for people to work with us from Wednesday 4 to Sunday 29 July, with the Festival running on the 18 to 22 July 2018.

Before the festival site work will include:

  • Bringing kit onto site
  • Putting up tents
  • Laying track
  • Installing plumbing and lighting
  • Assembling compost toilets
  • Establishing recycling and waste systems etc.

After the event we will take it all down, load it into vans and clean up the site.

Obviously the site crew’s main duties will be before and after the festival, but we always need some people to be on standby and help out during the event — and we will organise this as the set up progresses.

In exchange for a ticket to the festival and food whilst on site we will be expecting people to work roughly six hour days plus team meetings. We are also hoping to organise (optional) daily meditation slots and dharma discussion groups etc during the set up.

A Word about Alcohol and Drugs

Please have a think about our view on drink and drugs.

We don’t wish to judge people’s views on this — and hope it won’t put you off applying! And if this would be a new way of experiencing a festival for you then why not give it a try?! However please bear in mind that if you choose to work with us, then we’d like this policy to be respected.

Join a Team: Site Crew Recruiting Soon

Recruitment will be opening shortly: an email link will appear here.
