If you love music festivals, you're aged 18 or over and would love a free festival ticket - we have the perfect solution ...
CHICKS is delighted to be working with My Cause UK - a charity offers you a chance to become a festival volunteer at the UK’s biggest events, while making an impact for CHICKS!
It’s simple; you donate your time, and in return My Cause UK make a cash donation to CHICKS on your behalf. You don’t need to raise any money, collect any sponsorship or make a donation yourself.
You simply pay a deposit for the festival of your choice, complete your volunteer shifts, and get your deposit back after the event is over! Then My Cause UK make a donation based on the fee they receive from the festival organisers.
There are loads of festivals (and other music events) you can vounteer at including All Points East, Boomtown and Boardmasters! Take a look at the list of events, choose your favourite(s) and complete an application!
The amount of time you volunteer will depend on the festival. At weekend shows (usually Wednesday – Monday) you will give a maximum of 3 x 8 hours across the event period - the rest of the time is yours to fully enjoy your festival experience. Shifts for day events vary but the great thing is that all shifts are arranged to give you plenty of time to enjoy the event, and at longer festivals you’re given the opportunity to swap shifts with other volunteers. You can also arrange to volunteer at a festival with friends so that you can enjoy the experience of volunteering and festival fun together.
