Thank you for all you enquires regarding places with us at Glastonbury 2024. All those who worked two camping events wiht us in 2023 will be invited to apply for Glastonbury 2024 - all have been sent an email.  We will not be accepting any other applications or further announcements until these are all dealt with. We hope to have these processed by the end of February.  

You must select a sister event to partner your Glastonbury 2024 application - camping events only - Not BST or APE.

Glastonbury have asked us to take a deposit of £355 in line with their own volunteer guidelines and ticket price. This deposit must be paid on application. The admin fee for this show to just £15 in line with all the other camping shows. £340 will be returned (after both Glastonbury and sister events are completed - if either are not completed to a good standard your bond maybe withheld).

You will be required to work 3 x 8 hours shifts plus training/set up over 6 days these could be midnight – 8am, 8am – 4pm, and 4pm – midnight. These shifts will be on gate duties and you should get a couple of these out of the way before the main stage fires up!

NB. If you are lucky enough to be successful this year and secure a spot at Glastonbury with us and complete your sister event also - both to acceptbale standards - you will receive an invite for 2025. An invite does not guarantee a place. Sister events maybe over subscribed so you maybe required to select another event as your support for your application.

No cash/bond will be paid back at the event – all refunds of bonds will be by cheque post summer 2024.
