Applications to volunteer at 13 different festivals with My Cause UK this summer are now open.
My Cause UK volunteers raise money for any registered charity of their choice whilst enjoying full access to some of the country’s biggest festivals, including Boomtown, Download, Boardmasters and Noisily.
At most events, volunteers will be required to work three 8-hour shifts during the course of the festival. This is usually stewarding though gate and bar roles are also sometimes available.
Applicants can request the same shift patterns as their friends ensuring they’re free to enjoy the festival during their time off together and are provided with a voucher for one hot meal each shift.
My Cause UK provide their volunteers with free tea and coffee, and they’ll have access to a dedicated crew campsite with free phone charging and hot showers.
